Dry Itchy Skin Relief for Dogs

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Scotty Callies Mom

I haven't tried this but this is suppose to help dogs with dry or itchy skin, even hot spots. I am putting this here for safe keeping and hope it helps our best friends. If this works for hot spots, then it is worth a million bucks. My baby gets them a couple of times a year and licks himself half to death. The recipe calls for original Listerine, zaar wouldn't let me put in as an ingredient. I have tried this and it works great for dry itchy skin. His dandruff disappeared.

I am so thankfull to you for posting this recipe our 7 month old dog had lost all of his hair and had some bloody spots in the neck area , the skin looked like dandruff speckled leather it was so dry.He was a pitiful site to see he did not feel good , whined and cried and wasn't eating very good either . We new it wasn't mange , but did not know what it was. Then I found your post and we thought we would give it a try , since we tried most everything else , we were afraid we were goig to have to put him down if we didn't find something that worked, and thank God this worked ! A few day's after using this he started to act like himself , stoped crying , started eating better and within a week or so his hair began to come back he had little short stubby black hair again ! It seemed no time at all and he had a full coat again , and his fur is so shiny and beautiful and fully recovered. We still have our ''Rascal'' with us thanks to you .... THANK YOU SO MUCH ....Wilma
