Sharing some natural skin remedies Can't Post

Hi!

I recently discover 2 natural remedies for dog's skin from this book 'Dr Pitcairnís Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats' that I would like to share.

Rosemary Conditioner
-1 teaspoon dried rosemary (or 1 tablespoon fresh)
-1 pint boiling water (1 pint is like around 250ml)
Combine and steep for 10 minutes, covered. Strain and cool to body temperature. Pour it over your pet after the final rinse. Rub in and towel dry without further rinsing. It promotes a glossy coat and helps to repel fleas.

Lemon Skin Tonic (for dogs only, not cats)
Thinly slice a whole lemon, including the peel. Add it to 1 pint of near-boiling water and let it steep overnight. The next day, sponge the solution onto the animalís skin and let it dry. This can be used daily for severe skin problems involving fleas.

Personally I have tried these two on my dogs. It works and I really love that it's a natural remedy that we can prepare at home on our own. :) And it's easy. :)

Here is a link to my blog that I have written about these:

Cheers!

Hi!

Sorry I haven't been checking the forum for some time due to my hectic schedule lately.

Anyway, yeah like what supermutts said, it's a herb. I have posted a photo here:

Hi angeline84ng!

I'm not very sure with this. The two remedies are mainly for coat and repel fleas. The 1st one is very mild, I think there is no harm using it after bathing and see if it helps with the condition. The 2nd one (lemon) may be used for mange too. But as far as I'm concerned, pimpled skin normally has other underlying causes, eg: food allergy, etc.

How exactly is the condition of your dog? Like where are the pimples and how often does she get it? Have you talked to your vet about this?

Hi Chunhuey,

His pimples are like human pimples. Its all around on his body but not that much. Just a few here and there. Not quite sure whether is it a food allergy. Went twice to vet and he just change his food after testing some skin sample. My baby ate the food then it lessen but it is still there.

It itches him, so he will scratch it..

Hmm... Sounds like she is sensitive to certain ingredient(s). Maybe you can get second opinion from another vet? Make sure to ask what is the cause. Knowing the cause will make identifying the suitable remedy easier. :)

Erm I'm not very sure since I'm from Penang islan. >.<

Maybe you can try checking other threads in the forum. I think there should be plenty of members from your area.

Sorry, can't help much in your case...
