Soothes away the awful ITCH without using immune-suppressing corticosteroids.
Hot spots on dogs can be agonizing for the dog and frustrating for the dog lover.
These red, blotchy, inflamed areas commonly affect dogs (and sometimes cats) and can deteriorate dangerously fast if left untreated.
Because hotspots are itchy, your pet will rub, scratch or lick
the area. Dealing with the aggravation alone, your dog can turn the
infected area from a dime-sized dot to a palm-sized patch of seeping
sores within hours.
Did your vet prescribe steroids?
Other side effects of corticosteroids in dogs are weight gain, increased thirst and mood alterations. Long term use (which causes an over-production of cortisol in the body) could even lead to Cushing's Disease. And guess what else high levels of cortisol can cause? Red patches of skin, scabs and hair loss. Surely those were the very symptoms we were trying to cure!
Are there natural remedies to treat hot spots on dogs?
Of course there are! Your dog doesn’t need to begin that degenerative cycle of pharmaceutical drugs leading to immune deficiency, leading to further symptoms, leading to further pharmaceutical medications. Herbal medicine is all about avoiding this vicious cycle set in motion by the use of drugs like corticosteroids.
Some of the main causes of hotspots are fungal infections, mites and skin parasites such as scabies. To tackle hot spots in dogs we need the precise combination of medicinal herbs to battle these parasites, fungi and bacteria.
We never interfere with conventional veterinary protocol, but here's something you should know. Corticosteroids (known simply as steroids) are often the default prescription for any kind of skin inflammation. Topical or oral, both applications of steroid will do the job of immediately reducing inflammation.
Steroids will also do a pretty good job of suppressing the immune system by impeding the function of white blood cells. This lowers resistance to infection, the thing that may have caused the hot spots in the first place.
Calendula Officinalis extract
Calendula is known among medical herbalists as nature’s miracle skin healer. It is used today among clinical herbalists and naturopathic physicians to treat eczema, boils, skin ulcers and pretty much every skin condition ever suffered.
The dried petals of the Calendula plant contain the active ingredients. They are high in flavonoids, thought to be the cause of Calendula’s excellent anti-inflammatory action. Studies have shown that the topical application of Calendula prevents dermatitis in cancer patients during radiotherapy treatment.1 Calendula helps wounds heal faster by soothing itchy skin and fighting the minor infections caused by bug bites or parasites.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a safe and natural oil that has been used for centuries in human and animal wellness. It strengthens the body's immune system which is often weakened by stress, illness, or by the use of antibiotics and other prescription drugs.
Along with its soothing and disinfecting qualities, tea tree oil is capable of penetrating into the lower skin layers with its anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, analgesic (pain-killing) and cicatrizant (wound-healing) abilities.
It also has a diaphoretic effect (promotes sweating) which triggers the body's own natural preventative response to ward off infection.
Grapefruit seed extract
Citrus fruits have always been known as good bug repellents, but when it comes to natural insecticides, Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is one of the best. It has been proven to kill head lice in children, and in numerous tests has shown effective anti-microbial action against hundreds of bacterial, viral and fungal strains – not to mention a host of parasites.5 Grapefruit seed extract prevents the growth of yeast-like fungi strains like Candida Albicans (which dogs can suffer from as well as humans).6
