Dog allergies are more often than not pretty easy to manage once identified. You may not even have to put them on medication. Let’s take a quick look at some of the most effective natural remedies for dog allergies using products you can easily find at home.
Discontinue the problematic food
Food allergies are very common and also super easy to manage. Just stop feeding the dog whatever it is that is causing them trouble. If it is a dog food preparation, consider switching to a new brand with different ingredients. If it is homemade food, switch out ingredients one at a time starting with the proteins and monitor for results.
Try organic food
Sometimes, it is not the main ingredients that cause the problem with food allergies but instead it is the additives. That is why organic and all-natural dog food options are such a fantastic alternative if you are dealing with these problems.
Apple cider baths
Apple cider works wonders when it comes to getting rid of many allergens that cause the dog issues. This includes bugs like mites and fleas which cannot stand the smell of the stuff. It also helps dissolve and get rid of any pollen hanging on to the fur and causing reactions.
Essential oil treatments
The most effective here include olive oil, lavender oil, chamomile extracts, and neem oil. In addition to soothing the irritated skin and calming down the agitated pooch, essential oils help to ward off fleas, mites and ticks.
One of the most effective ways to soothe a dog’s irritated skin is through oat treatments. It could be a bath with oat powder added, oat pastes and masks, or even oat-based dog shampoos. These help to soothe skin after allergic dermatitis preventing major complications.
