    Some homemade doggy remedies

    Let's share some homemade doggy remedies that can help with some doggy problems.

    I'll start with....

    ==============================
    FOR SOME DOGGY SKIN AILEMENTS
    ==============================


    * Dab with milk of magnesia to calm irritated skin.


    * Aloe vera from plants and creams. Apply gel directly on the spot.

    You can also dilute with water, put it in a spray bottle and spray
    it on the spot.


    * Dab with organic apple cider vinegar


    * Apply a mixture of baking soda and water to the affected areas.


    This also helps soothe itchy human skin in case you, too, have a
    sting, rash or poison ivy.


    * Petroleum jelly or Bag Balm use either to seal in moisture. Also
    excellent for chaffed paw pads.

    ==========
    RINGWORM
    ==========

    First, wash bedding in hot water and bleach. Use bleach to clean
    wherever you can, and discard brushes, combs, beds and toys that
    could lead to re-infestation.


    Treat the affected animal with an iodine-based shampoo, followed by
    an anti-fungal cream on the infected parts.


    Sometimes lime sulphur dips are used. Sometimes oral medication is
    also prescribed for severe cases.


    Since ringworm can continue to live in the spore stage for many
    months, an animal who does not have active spots could still have a
    flare-up.


    Most ringworm infections in dogs are self-limiting unless the
    animal has immune system problems or metabolic diseases such as
    diabetes, or are on steroids.

    I haven't tried this but apparently garlic is an excellent natural remedy for keeping away worms. I would be interested to hear if anybody uses this and how they give it their dog, and how often.

    Kind regards

    I remember as a child, I loved animals and would pick up strays and bring them home. In fact this is how I got dogs and cats as a child.
    One cat had ringworm and lo and behold so did I, on the crown of the head. I had to have my head shaved twice because of it. lol

    If you have a routine of cleaning dogs ears with vinegar and water, it prevents yeast infections for the floppy eared dogs. It doesn't have to be a special type of vinegar just plain white vinegar will do. An ear dropper and 2 drops of vinegar in each ear. Once a month is good enough.

    I also use vinegar and water to clean ears but for mites or yeast infections I find you can't beat the blue wash solution.

    I've heard that pumpkin can help cure diarrhea. Is this true?
