While there are many different medications to help relieve allergy symptoms, many of us choose to go the more natural route to make sure we try all the safest options. If you are searching for natural allergy relief for dogs, you might want to consider some of the ideas below:
Essential Oils – Scientists have repeatedly confirmed the powerful effect of essential oils. If you use them sparingly, they may have some positive results. An example of an effective essential oil is German Chamomile.
Calendula Tea Compresses – Calendula flowers have been known for treating skin conditions for a long time. Steep the dried flowers in hot water to brew a drink. Apply the cooled tea directly to problem areas using a washcloth. You can also buy calendula salves and sprays commercially.
Calendula oil – It is rich in anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial properties and can become one more method to get dog allergy relief.
Epsom Salt Soak – If your dog has problematic paws, fill a tub with warm water, put a few tablespoons of Epsom salt in it, and let your dog soak the feet in it.
Coconut Oil – Add a bit of coconut oil to your dog’s food. It will have a beneficial effect on the fur.
Vitamin E – Massage into the little problem spots to moisturize and prevent infections.
Apple cider – Natural, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar can be good for a pet with skin allergic dermatitis. If your dog has itchy skin, you can mix apple cider vinegar and water 1 to 1. You can put it in a spray bottle for more convenient use.
