Dog Skin Problems Natural Treatment

Natural Treatment for Dog Skin Problems

Skin problems in dog are a common occurrence.  The external tissue layer is the first to be exposed to extreme weather conditions and microscopic organisms which brings forth various skin ailing conditions.

Extremely cold dry winds in winter months will exhaust the otherwise normal supply of natural oil from a dog’s skin (or for that matter even human skin) causing his skin to dry out.  A dry integument of an animal gradually progresses to dandruff formation making the dog scratch frequently due to an itchy feeling generally experienced with dryness.  Take a handful of vitamin E oil and massage it gently into your dog’s skin to give him immediate relief from any skin irritations.  Another option would be to dilute pure aloe vera gel taken directly from the plant in some water and spray your dog’s entire coat with this for aloe vera has natural moisturizing and healing properties.  If his dry coat begins to show signs of dandruff formation soak him in an oatmeal bath.  Combine rolled oats 1 cup and ¼ cup each of dried lavender and chamomile buds in a blender and powder finely.  To this add ½ cup corn starch, place in a small cloth bag, tie it up and toss it into your dog’s lukewarm bath water.  Medicated shampoos and dips should be resorted to only when the condition is severe warranting medical help.

When your dog licks, bites, or chews one particular area persistently it can inflame his skin around that chosen spot and give it a more reddish hue.  His irritation may either be due to presence of tiny mites, fleas or an insect bite.  To get rid of microscopic mites from his skin combine equal quantities of calamine lotion, aloe vera gel, and soluble sulfur in a large pan.  Mix well, add 16 cups of distilled water and bring to a boil.  Lower flame and simmer for 30 min. with the pan covered.  Cool and coat your dog’s entire body including his feet and tail with this solution.  Wait until dry and then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water.  Follow this with a liberal application of petroleum jelly on his skin to lock in moisture and prevent skin dryness.  Repeat this ever week for a period of one month to prevent your dog from developing mange skin disease.

Nasty wingless, bloodsucking tiny insects called fleas may also be the cause for your dog’s itch.  Take 2 cups of fresh rosemary leaves and steep in 4 cups boiling water for 30 mins.  Strain, add to 1 gallon of warm water and pour over your dog’s body until he is thoroughly soaked in it.  Allow this to dry naturally and this will save him from fleas.

For an insect bite mix equal drops of extra virgin coconut oil and olive oil and apply on his tender, swollen areas for immediate relief.  Preferably keep him indoors after sunset and screen your doors and windows with good mosquito screens sealing off entry for any insects completely.

To keep your dog tick free, boil 2 cups of water and add 1 cup of dried rosemary and eucalyptus leaves.  Lower flame and simmer for half an hour.  Cool, strain into a spritz bottle and add 2 drops each of lavender, basil, and eucalyptus essential oils.  Tighten the lid and shake well.  Now add 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, spray and rub it into your dog’s skin.  This will control your dog’s tick population.  Tick removal is essential as these can cause parasitic dermatitis in your pet.

Skin diseases become rampant when your dog’s immune system is weak.  Feed him a well balanced diet that is free of chemicals and preservatives.  Home cooked food or a raw diet with vitamin, minerals, and fish oil supplements will help your dog develop resistance to skin infections.

Brush his coat every day.  This will stimulate the oil glands present on his skin and remove any dead skin cells and hair effectively.  Keep his sleeping area, bedding, feeding area and feeding bowls clean.  As far as possible use natural disinfectants and cleansers rather than harsh chemicals and detergents while cleaning his enclosure.  Spray your dog’s crate or kennel with white vinegar, let it sit for a couple of minutes, then wash off thoroughly with a lukewarm mild soapy solution.  Follow this with a peroxide cleansing and finally spray with water to which a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil is added.  Keep your pet dog clean and healthy at all times.

Natural Home Remedies for Dog Skin Allergies

Dogs cannot react to allergens like humans do, which is with nasal problems.  They react to allergens by way of developing skin distresses.  Signs and symptoms of dog skin allergies are scratching, licking, raw spots, open sores, and hotspots.  You may find your pet rubbing his face against carpets, head shaking to ward off fleas around his ear regions which may be the cause of his skin allergy, and discharge from his eyes or even nasal drip.

Microscopic organic substances, mold, pollens, and dust can often trigger a bout of atopic dermatitis in your pet dog.  This usually results in chewing or licking their paws, and scratching their eyes, ears, and face.  Atopy is a common problem among young canines usually between 1 to 3 years of age.  Identify the sources of your pet’s allergy and reduce his exposure to allergens.  Install a high deficiency particulate air and charcoal filters to reduce air allergens.  Soak your dog’s feet in 100% distilled aloe vera solution to soothe his irritated skin.

Ticks will usually cause parasitic dermatitis in dog species.  Wash, bathe, and groom your pet regularly.  Bathe your pet dog weekly with a neem-based soap until fleas are gone.  Soak him in warm soapy water during bathing sessions allowing the fleas to drown in water.  Boil a handful of quick-cooking oatmeal in 8 cups of water for 10 mins.  Strain and give your pet a final rinse with this solution after baths to relieve his irritated skin.  You will need to pick off fleas from the head region or comb with a flea comb.  Get a bowl and mix water with a few drops of liquid dish detergent.  Dip the flea filled comb, dumping the fleas in this soapy mixture.  This will kill them naturally.

To prevent reoccurrence of flea in your pet dog feed him water to which a capful of apple cider vinegar is added.  Start with small quantities as your dog may not want to drink it initially.  Once he begins to drink increase the quantity gradually.

A healthy immune system is a best defense against allergies or for that matter any disease forms in dogs.  Poor quality diet foods can result in nutritional dermatitis so avoid feeding your pet dog with these cheap quality pet foods.  Along with good commercial dog food give vitamin A and E supplements to maintain the health of his skin.  Take care to give in right proportions as these are fat soluble vitamins and can get accumulated in his body.  Dilute 1 tsp iodine in 2 cups of water, dip a clean washcloth in this solution and wipe the irritated areas to give relief.

Add flaxseed oil in your pet dog’s food which is critical for skin and coat problems in your pet.  Along with this supplement add to your dog’s diet 1-2 tbsp of fish oil every three days.  Use a formula specially designed for pets.

Once a skin allergy establishes in your pet dog, clean the floors and vacuum carpets and furnishings on a daily basis.  Brew a cup of generic black tea, dilute with 2 cups of water and with a spray bottle mist the home interiors to kill dust mites.  Clean the dog kennel outdoors, keep the floor clean and dry as dog’s skin is highly sensitive to urine and feces.

If symptoms continue to persist and home remedies do not seem to give your pet dog any relief, take him to a vet for proper diagnosis, care and treatment.
