Unfortunately, itchy skin can make your dog's life miserable, and the medicine either prescribed by your vet or over the counter can be expensive.

It's no surprise dog owners are hunting for a natural remedy to treat their dog's itchy skin that they can make at home.

Luckily, there are quite a few natural remedies for itchy skin. We have put together this list of some natural, inexpensive home remedies that you can try.  

Home Remedies For Dog Itching With Skin Issues

Vitamin E - Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can block free radicals and replenish lipids in your dog's skin. Its very effective on skin issues like dog elbow callus. Many veterinarians will recommend that your dog should eat small amounts of vitamin E, but it can also be applied topically.

Oatmeal Bath - Many dog shampoos contain oatmeal; it is an extremely effective treatment for dogs with dry and damaged skin, so much so that it is considered an active ingredient.

You can save some money by using ingredients found at your local grocery store to give your dog an oatmeal bath. 

  • Grind up sugar-free old-fashioned oats in your blender
  • Fill the bathtub with warm water
  • Bath your dog in a water/oatmeal bath, at least up past their legs, and higher if they tolerate it. Soak for ten minutes
  • Dry your dog with a towel, don't use a hot hairdryer on damaged skin as it will only dry out even more

Epsom Salt Bath - Dogs and humans use Epsom salt for its healing and soothing qualities. If your dog has dry or tender skin, try an Epsom salt bath to ease the pain.

  • Add roughly 1/2O cup of Epsom salt per gallon of water
  • Soak affected area for 10 minutes
  • Rinse with fresh, clean water
  • Towel dry, don't use a hot hairdryer as this could further irritate dry skin

Coconut Oil - Coconut oil can be applied topically to help skin conditions such as hot spots, bites or itchy and dry skin. You can use coconut oil on your dog's skin about once a week, let it absorb for roughly 5 to 10 minutes, then wipe away any excess.

Curcumin - Curcumin can be made into a paste and applied to your dog's skin. Curcumin is known to have strong anti-inflammatory properties, with relatively minor side effects. 

Importantly, avoid any potentially irritating topical treatments if your dog’s skin is compromised by open sores, cuts, or deep rashes. When in doubt, call your vet’s office for advice on how to manage your dog’s skin issues at home

Natural treatment for dogs with skin issues

CBD balm for dogs can be used for dogs with skin issues thanks to the relationship between your dog's endocannabinoid system and their skin. CBD stimulates your dog's endocannabinoid system, which may help to support skin health.

Suppose your dog has skin allergies, dog eye allergies, dry skin, hyperkeratosis, and even dry dog paws. You might want to discuss our CBD soothing balm as an option with your vet. This topical ointment is getting excellent reviews from our customers.

We care about our dogs as much as you do yours. We ensure all products are lab-tested and made with 100% natural ingredients.

These can be purchased from the comfort of your own home and shipped directly to your front door.

Biscuit's Story

biscuits story

To say Biscuit lived an active life would be an understatement. Unfortunately, at the age of 10, she started to limp after trips to the dog park.

It broke my heart to see her in pain doing what she loved the most. I started feeding her a raw food diet and added high-quality supplements to ensure her nutritional needs were met. Unfortunately, while she loved the food, the limping persisted. I decided to go to the vet. They quickly diagnosed her with osteoarthritis and prescribed a drug to help.

Her limping stopped, and she was in less visible pain. For the first week, it seemed that this was the solution. A few days later, it was to my absolute shock that she...
