Dog’s Itchy Skin #itchydogs

Dog's itchy skinIs your dog’s itchy skin driving you crazy because he has dry, flaking skin, with maybe lumps and bumps, scabs and spots, and you just feel so guilty?

Let’s face it, dog do get itchy and itchy dogs are a huge problem for dogs and a big concern for the owner, because there are over 500 different things that can cause a dog’s itchy skin issue, otherwise known as canine skin disorder.

With so many different causes it’s very difficult to find out what is causing that itch.

Treatment for Dog’s Itchy Skin

Syrinx Za might have found a way around that,  dog owners have said that our Deep Therapy Cleansing Bar have calmed the itch on their dog, which does make a lot of sense as it is a 100% natural handmade therapy bar, that contains no additives and is used for treatment on human skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and cracked or sensitive skin.

Dogs can get the same skin conditions as us humans, but they also have added offenders such as fleas, mites, ticks, and parasites and dog fur.  Even stress can affect our dog’s skin.

Gentle, Natural Soap

Usually what happens is that people try to use human shampoo on dogs but this shampoo is too harsh for a dog. Even frequent bathing can cause dry skin.  They need something soft and gentle (without chemical or fragranced additives) which will moisturise their skin.

Ingredients

Other ingredients in the soap that should help are sapropel, the rare lake sediment to hydrate and draw out impurities from the skin, olive oil, castor oil, coconut oil, turmeric and beeswax all which have abilities to lock in moisture, heal with antiseptic and provide a rich lather.

Pet owners have told us of dogs that live outside that get terribly dry skin, which are soothed.  Another dog owner told us of her dog that has allergies, who bites and gnaws at his paws has calmed a lot since they started using the soap.

Helping Your Itchy Dog

It is also a benefit to regularly brush the dog to keep him clean as this will also moisturise his skin.

Keeping the dog hydrated is essential, plenty of water and fresh fruits and vegetables.

Obviously it’s the same as with humans but more so that all dogs are different and what helps one of our canine friends might not help another but we think that it’s worth a try to soothe your dog’s itchy skin.   One bar of soap will last a very long time when you only need to bathe him around once a month, try it and see.
