Goodbye Itch

September 12th, 2019

A few of my previous blogs focused on environmental allergies. How they impact our dogs’ lives and how we can help them the natural way.

I wrote how bathing your dog at home is very effective. It is a cheap and sensible thing to do in order to remove the allergens from the coat and skin. Bathing provides immediate relief and the guideline is to bath your itchy dog at least once a week.
Find out what to look for when you are choosing a shampoo and how to make your own rinse here. Environmental allergies are not limited to a certain season of the year anymore. For example, spring and spring pollen. We’re now seeing more and more all-year-round allergens 🤧.

Does your dog suffer from environmental allergies?

Here are few tips on how you can look after his/ her home environment.

I created Vita Canis Skin Relief exactly for this. To help the dogs suffering from environmental allergies and to help them deal with the symptoms.

Skin Relief is a 100% natural treatment for dogs suffering from the discomfort of itchy skin.  It aims to combat itching and provide fast relief to allergic reactions.

I carefully selected the following ingredients…

Calendula oil – because of it’s anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

Aloe Vera – There’ve been numerous reports that have explored the role of topical aloe vera administration in skin conditions. And also in wound healing management, including the treatment of psoriasis, dermatitis, surgical wounds and as a home remedy for burn injuries.

Essential Oils – German Chamomile has excellent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and cicatrizant (healing properties, such as when our bodies form scar tissues) and relieves itchy skin.

Peppermint hydrolat & essential oil – When peppermint oil is applied it causes local depletion of cold receptors. Therefore suppresses sensitivity of sensitive nerve endings and induces a pleasant feeling of coldness. This overlaps unwanted perceptions such as itching, burning and minor pain. The local anaesthetic action is significant, and when applied, dogs’ stop scratching or nibbling pretty much immediately. ❤︎

I’ve also been getting a lot of nice feedback for Skin Relief and this is the latest one:

My 14-year-old Westie has suffered with allergies resulting in itchy skin and yeast build up for most of her life. Although well controlled with a non-steroid medication and an antifungal shampoo. These past couple of years have been quite bad – especially for her little paws which became swollen and infected.

I was reluctant to get yet more antibiotics and I was recommended Vita Canis and after reading about the products I decided to try the Skin Relief. I have to say I was worried that she might be allergic to one of the ingredients. So I tried it on one paw first, putting it on with a cotton pad and using a cotton bud to get between her toes.

It gave her instant relief and within 3 days the improvement was remarkable. The swelling has gone down and her skin has healed and looks so much healthier. She’s no longer struggling when walking and is back to her happy frisky self. I use it once in the morning and once at night after washing her feet. And I have also started to use the Paw Butter at night which seems to soften and keep the yeast build-up in check. I honestly cannot recommend this product enough, it’s such a relief to have found something that works.
