I have a 1yr old Beagle/Boxer mix. The other day I noticed
that she was walking with her tail to the side and was
constantly nipping at it. I looked the next day and she
had a tiny patch of hair missing and it was red underneath.
I took her to the vet and he said it was a minor skin
infection. He prescribed me with anti-itch pills as well
as "GentaSpray Topical Spray Gentamicin Sulfate
w/Betamethasone Valerate" as a topical antibiotic. He said
that if it didn't clear up in two weeks to bring her back.
I guess it is my fault for not asking then but my questions

#1 - How soon should I be looking for her hair to grow back
#2 - Should the skin always be red or am I looking for a
color change?
#3 - It has been three days but it almost looks like it is
spreading and there is a little more hair missing. Should
I be worried?
