Dogs feel discomfort for several reasons. The most common place for skin rashes is around the ears, belly, groin, paws, and rump. If your dog is experiencing mild itching, there are some easy remedies you can use at home. But if it develops into chronic itching or is combined with other symptoms, you should seek a professional’s help. Here are some natural remedies that can be used to treat an itchy dog at home.
Aloe Vera is a powerful healing agent that helps to reduce redness on the skin. Natural aloe vera can be a lifesaver for treating sunburn, and it’s a plant many people have at home. You can buy aloe vera gel from a nearby grocery or drug store. Apply the gel or inner part of the plant to your dog’s itchy spot. Make sure the aloe vera gel you buy from a shop does not contain alcohol.
A Healthy Balanced Diet
Allergies and dryness can also cause rashes. Feeding your dog with the right food can help them soothe the skin. Foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids and carbohydrates fight against inflammation. You can also add supplements to your dog’s diet. Make sure to discuss adding in supplements with your vet first.
