  • Siddy Freeman Norris

    I just heard an omega 3 fatty acid, cir cumin……both for itch or infected ears and for inflammation anywhere, green tea, liquorish root from the supplement store (acts like a steroid shot). Stops symptoms significantly in a day? * just passing on from a vet* several principles are similar here

  • Barbi Ruth

    IF they have itching from a yeast infection, DO NOT use ANY oatmeal of any sort. It promotes the growth of yeast. And any grains in dog food, potatoes, corn , sugars in them too. Sugar loves yeast and promotes it further.

  • Danette Sellars

    My dog has dry itchy skin and is losing hair from it I took her to the vet to see she's had mange she has no major but I don't know what to do

  • Boo Boo

    Coconut oil works best for my dog .
    I sometime add a. Bit of organic neem oil to the coconut.
    Please be careful as some dogs find neem irritating especially if you mix too much in with the coconut oil.
    Only a small amount is needed.
    Oregano oil again organic I have also used again this should be used sparingly and always mixed with another oil ie organic coconut,olive oil ,hemp oil
    My dog skin is very sensitive.I have to be care ful with what I use around the house .I use all natural cleaning products,washing liquids.etc
    I find coconut oil best for my dog.it’s also a natural anti- microbial .both neem and oregano are anti septic anti bacterial.and fleas don’t like either especially neem.Warning neem doesn’t smell nice but it soothes itching and heals the skin .only a little is needed .You can add it to a natural dog shampoos too.

  • Becky Armstrong

    Excellent. Can any of these remedies help a cat? I have spent a fortune on vets, carpet cleaners and groomers. Her skin got drier and her itch got worse. I am currently using a steroid spray from the vet. Thanks for any help.

  • Dianne Coy

  • Carol Ro

    This is older, but I’ll weigh in……cut the wheat. Allergy to wheat increases over the years. Cutting the biscuits with wheat (most do) worked wonders with my dogs.Lots of premium dry dog foods are wheat free

  • Pamela Cleveland

    I have a 9 year old Shar Pei who is driving me crazy with his scratching, licking and shaking of his head. The last time he was this bad I took him to the vet who diagnosed him with yeast and ear infections. He was treated with antibiotics and prednisone. He finally cleared up but now its back. Nothing I have tried ( has helped but I don't want to put him back on antibiotics and prednisone unless its a last resort. I'm going to try some of your remedies but do you have any advice on treating his yeasty ears?

  • AnaDeisi Leonor

  • Susan Zheng Property

    Hihi, my dog is having rashes and pimples that he can’t stop licking and scratching. I am thinking of using the camomile tea spray solution.
    Can I check do I have to mix both camomile tea and herbal tea together? Or I can just use either one?
    Do you have a step by step guideline?

    Example: do I just use one teabag, add water and chill in the fridge?

    Awaiting for your reply
    Thank you very much!

  • Miss Echo

    My two dogs have never had fleas or and skin disease but then my Mom past away so I had to adopt her itching dog. Now my dogs are crazy scratching..can't sleep hardly and I'm pissed off. Is it that contagious?

  • voxmobius

    Have you tried using pure witch hazel instead in the one remedy that uses rubbing alcohol? My mom used to use it on us kids as her "go to" astringent and I've used it on my dog in lieu of isopropyl since it doesn't sting. He knows the difference in the two by smell and will even refuse witch hazel with 10% isopropyl (which is what you most often find in the drug store).

  • John Bellamy

    My dog has horrible red with pus around the teeth. I'm disabled and can't afford to take him for treatment. He is about 12 and about6 lbs . He is a chihuahua. Please help, tell me what I can do. He is in a lot of pain, I have tried several home remedies to try to help but no good so far. I make less than 800 a month and time I pay bills I'm broke. His gums and teeth are past saving but need to get rid of lus and swollen gums. [email protected] please help me help my dog.

  • Gisela Swaragita

    My landlady's dachshund has severe dry dandruff and distinct smell. She said she had visited 3 vets and nothing worked. Do you know what to do abt this? Is it about the diet (the dog is fed rice and veggies mixture) or about the climate (we live in a tropical country in South East Asia)? Or is it a typical problem of the breed? The dog is 9 years old and lives a lonely life. I really want to help him 🙁


    I had never given rawhide to my dog…she eats fruits as treats. In fact….her food atr all home cooed meals specially prepared for her. NEVER ON KIBBLE or any dog processed food one get from Pet stores.
    I had prepared salmon, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, carrots, duck, pork …all healthy ingredients .Except beef. Tat worked out well for her.
    But she still itch under armpits….I think I will wash her with warmth towel every night before she wear her PJ.
    Yes….my dog loves to wear her PJ…!!!! Haha….
    Her fur is brush everyday but this time…i will get essential oil when brushing her fur everynight.
    I think….coconut oil might help too. Taken orally.
    About BENARDYL….I cannot get it in SINGAPORE. Unless prescribed by vets. I had no intention to visit vet because she always prescribed medication either too strong or some with side effects.
    I prefer natural remedies….BECOS IT WORKS !!!!!
    I had changed her bath routine to every 2 days ….instead of every 5 days for a bath.
    I dont want to bath her everyday becos her coat might lose her luster….
    Anyway…giving her warmth towel everynite as a RUB OVER IS PRACTICAL . And putting some safe essential oil on the brush will do the trick.
    GOD BLESS !!!!!!

  • Shirah Havoc

    hi sir.. how many times in a day should we apply 50% water and 50%baking soda on puppy's itchy armpit- small wounds building up already due to continuos rubbing…

  • Seth Tyrssen

    THANK YOU ROCKY! I've been at my wit's end, my poor old Bandit has struggled with severe itching most of his 12 years. Vets diagnosed it as a yeast infection, and for a few months, we had it cleared up; but when itching returned, the same stuff did no good. Being genuinely poor, I can't go to them all the time so they can say "well let's try this, let's try that" at my expense. I'll definitely give some of these natural remedies a try!

  • Debra Milton

    The only thing working on my sheltie is natural vegetable glycerin,, I add several drops to his shampoo afterward 2 tablespoons of glycerin to a tub full of rinse water. I also mix 2 cups of distilled water (to prevent spoilage) a teaspoon of glycerin to a spray bottle using ONLY a VERY small amount on his coat once a week while brushing. He has a beautiful smooth coat to boot! Try this before the vet visit if it works for your fur baby great but not all skin issues are a topical issue so judge wisely.

  • NHV Natural Pet Products

    Unlike humans; often our furbabies allergies appear as skin irritations, infections and hot spots. Determining with your vet whether it's environmental or food and then finding the appropriate treatment can make their lives much happier ! 🥰😺

  • Ken Pulasky

    Thanks so much for taking up your time to make this really informative video. Your dedication to helping others, such as me, is so very much appreciated. I feel guilty when Honey (my 8 year old pit bull) is sick and I cannot afford to take her to a vet. Fortunately, with people such as yourself, spending your time informing people like me of a few vet alternatives, I feel better in helping Honey when she needs my help. You are a benefit to all pet owners and I wish you much success in your life. God bless you!

  • VogelKonigin

  • Cesar Juarez

    Hello I just bought a four month old English bulldog and I found a few pimples on her back in her rear end and she’s also kind of Itchy she kind of smells do you have anything to help with that?

  • larna keane

    Very helpful. I wash my two dogs feet after a walk, specially this time of year; people want weedfree grass. I don't want them to come in with burning feet and then licking the chemicals off. Thank you for the suggestions. I especially liked the info on eucalyptus….looking for help with avoiding fleas and ticks and don't want to make them sick with some of these poisons on market.

  • Sheridan Rawls

    Does it have to be the pill form of vitamin E or can it be the bottle? Is there a big difference between the 2? I know in certain things there are a few differences, just want to check if this is one of them.

    And also, what soap is best to wash the dog with, in my case a chihuahua, before trying the coconut oil?

  • Jason Bonanza

    Animax is magic so long with any topical don't let them lick it. walk them after application, lamp shade, or anything to keep them busy. Also they usually love coconut oil. Mix with food… my dog actually ate his dry food with it! One last tip GRAIN FREE. not sure why but all these breeds are having issues with the dog food… talk with your VET!

  • Tonya Howard

    Have to be careful with oatmeal because many dogs can be yeasty and oatmeal will make it worse. If they smell like Doritos or have a funky smell then that could be yeast – providone iodine (Betadine) mixed with purified water (I believe purified water if there could be an infection…regular water should be okay if not). Mixed until it is an iced tea colour. You can dab with a gauze pad, use as a foot soak or keep in a spray bottle like I go and spritz. (I sometimes spray on the gauze pad.)

  • Barbara Snow

    Add Olive oil to their food every day. If they won't eat that get some down their throats starting with 1 tsp. depending on size up to 1tlb.

  • Firebird

    As a vet student I say double check your dog's basic medicals are up to date:
    This means dewormers, heartworm, vaccines, flea and tick medication. Why? All of these things prevent most common causes of itches, especially deworming. Also before bringing your dog to the vet, take note of where your dog is itching, what it looks like, how often they itch and what they do when they itch. Are they rubbing on the carpet, are they scratching with their foot, are they licking, are they biting. These can all help us because sometimes discoloration of fur is caused by the itching and sometimes it's caused by the licking and saliva. When I talk about how often, sometimes dogs or cats can have allergic dermatitis and it can be linked to the season. My friend has a pittie who sheds almost all her hair during shedding season and she itches like mad, but as soon as the phase is over, she's all good. Also note that if the wound is hot to the touch, smells funny, or the skin has thickened, the wound has opened or there is a ring formation or anything odd that doesn't look like a normal itch, please please take your dog to the vet. This is so important to do at this point because that means that natural treatments may not help your dog and that it could be the sign of a serious infection that could be highly contagious and/or a life threatening illness that could be handled if managed early.

    I’m at my wits end, I have a little shot I Maltese, she’s 14 now and she’s always had a greasy hair problem but I’ve always managed it with oatmeal shampoos, brushing and such but the last summer gone it got so bad she was was scratching biting and licking so bad she was just tearing skin off causing these red scabby areas. She couldn’t sleep, she couldn’t lay down, she would scream in pain. I took her to my vet and they prescribed antibiotics, an allergy medication and Maloseb shampoo which calmed everything down but did nothing for her bad smell or greasy hair. Then a month ago it came back with avengence and started all over again. I took her back to the vet and they prescribed priednisone and it was the worst rubbish I ever used! She was shaking a puking and sounding raspy! I had to ate her down off it but it worse the week of life! It did nothing! She stunk worse still had the greasy hair and still couldn’t sleep. So I dove straight into all of your remedies. I did all of them. Everything you mentioned. Nothing! It’s still greasy! She’s still in pain and I feel so defeated! We did

    Epsom salts
    Baking soda and water
    Lime juice
    Vitamin E creams
    Moo goo
    Wheat free diet
    Added omega three oils
    Brushing her everyday
    Maloseb baths
    Thyme soak baths
    Cold tea
    Apple cider vinegar
    Sea salt
    Bottled water only
    Grass restrictions
    Carpet restrictions
    Eucalyptus oil

  • Cind0110

    I am seeing this 7-13-19, I am thrilled to have found this video! I much prefer natural remedies over pharmaceuticals. Have tried apple cider vinegar and water just yesterday, seems to help with the licking of the paws, which I am pretty sure is a yeast infection.

  • Ashley Pullin

    My dog constantly licking and biting right where her tail starts. Not sure what it could be or what would help relieve it. Any suggestions

    Omegas process out of food. Pipingrock.com $4.95 for 120 Alaskan salmon oil w/omegas 3 5 6 7 9. I capsule a day on paw or food. Then every other day.

  • Frances Bruno

    Re chewing paws… Really take a close look at where they are chewing. Was fearing a fungus infection when our Gordon Setter started random chewing of front paws… it turned out to be tiny pieces of mud balling between the toes, because of the muddy spring, despite feet getting hosed off before coming into the house. Big relief that it wasn't a skin disorder.

  • Elizabeth Calderon

    My 13 year old yellow lab. Has been itchy most of her life, but case solved finally. A lot of what Rocky says here helped her: brushing daily, adding fish oil to diet helped tremendously.
    I hadn’t added vit E, started doing that. Great tips, thanks for this.

  • Amy

    Soak oats in hot water and take the water mix it with fresh Aloe Vera pulp and use it on your pets, cats or dogs. It works perfectly , I used all type of allergy medicines and even Cortisone but this soothes the irritated dry skin better and with no side effects. Good luck
