Oatmeal Bath for your Dog's Itchy Skin #BayerExpertCare #ad
Poor doggy. How about this, do you give him baths in a tub or baby pool? I'd try to fill the tub with a few inches of warm water and dissolve a few cups of oatmeal powder into the water, as he soaks use a cup to pour the oatmeal water over his back, try to keep him soaking as long as he's comfortable, pouring water over his back every minute or so, then rinse him off and see how he feels. My dogs usually feel so great after their soak they take long, long naps! Best wishes! Just like people, dogs can get itchy skin. Itching can be a sign of dietary allergies, contact allergies, skin diseases such as mange, or itchiness can be a result of dry skin. Your can give your dog an oatmeal bath to reduce his discomfort. Oatmeal nourishes, moisturizes and soothes the skin. An oatmeal bath leaves an invisible protective oatmeal coating on the skin, protecting it from further itching. If you suspect the itching is caused by a medical condition, take your dog to a veterinarian for treatment.Otherwise I think an oatmeal bath is a great natural home remedy. My dogs have no problem sitting in chest high water for 15 minutes, as the soaking really helps the oatmeal work its magic. You know your kitty best, if she doesn't like normal baths, she probably won't understand or like being soaked, my advice there would be to make the oatmeal bath in just an inch or so of water, set her in it and gently scoop some oatmeal water all over her. Make sure to avoid her eyes and ears. An itching dog is an unhappy dog. And an unhappy dog means an unhappy family. Rover might itch for many reasons.
