I’ve had a lot of people asking me what to do about their dogs’ hot spots lately…
First… what is a hot spot?
According to PetMD it is “anything that irritates the skin and causes a dog to scratch or lick himself can start a hot spot. Hot spots can be caused by allergic reactions, insect, mite or flea bites, poor grooming, underlying ear or skin infections and constant licking and chewing prompted by stress or boredom.”
Did you know they can even get them from the toxic chemicals we use in our homes? (Laundry detergent, especially dryer sheets, all-purpose cleaner, air fresheners, etc.)
Ace gets mild ones on his stomach from some unknown allergy and Lemongrass products have worked great to clear them up!
Here’s what I do…
1. Clean the area (I love our Citrus & Tea Tree Prebiotic Soap for this)
2. Spray with Prebiotic Facial Mist to improve and restore skin and create an environment where the good bacteria eliminate the bad, disease producing, bacteria
3. Apply Organic Skin & Nail Balm. This stuff is very soothing and will help protect as the skin heals. It’s scent free so they’re not as likely to lick it off and it’s chemical free so it won’t harm them if they do!
All of these products are available through the links, on my website at www.OurLemongrassSpa.com/8604, or just contact me, I can have them shipped to your door!
Lemongrass Spa products are made for humans but have too many uses to count. Since there are no chemicals they’re safe for dogs too!
Give the natural approach a try for your dog’s health!
BTW… the picture below is Ace’s latest hot spot healing (day 3) with this treatment! He doesn’t get them nearly as frequently now and I don’t have to give him Benadryl!
