Been using it for three days now and the Hotspot is dry and hair is already growing back. She is still scratching but not as often as she did. If anybody has any more ideas I could try, please let me know.
Thanks again U Hi, I was wondering about the ACV and omega-3 treatment.
Black tea contains tannic acids, which will help to dry out and heal the sores quickly.
Soak the tea bag in hot water and once removed let it cool.
Use warm water to rinse the area well and you'll find that by using the jelly, the fur has stuck to it and washes out easily.
Afterwards use electric clippers to shave off only the fur that surrounds the sore. Use a Water Based Cleanser or antiseptic Betadine if you have it.
Apply the tea bag directly onto the hotspots for about five minutes.
Repeat this treatment three to six times every day until the spot is dry and healed.
I have used the spray and not washed with the shampoo, using reg dog gentle shampoo and the results are still good.That and cutting back her diet to just her wheat free dog food will usually will take care of the hot spot.I bought some hot spot spray at Petco for hot spots that had tea tree oil in it and that helped but not as well as hydrocortisone cream.We've tried everything from non-allergen food to giving her baths almost every bi-weekly. I thought it might be stress due to him being bullied by 1 of my older dogs. They too suggests tea bags for immediate treatment and they have a noni lotion that can go on the site after the tea bags. I have worked super hard at keeping two of my dogs skin problems at bay. A guy from a natural dog food company told me about that one. I do home cooking, probiotics and I really think it is partly hereditary. :) whewwww Hi, I too have a German Shepard that gets hotspots and itchy skin.I use Serra pro (enzyme) to decrease inflammation as well as flax oil and or krill oil from Vitality Science. I have tried shark liver oil on spots that break out with great success. The one JRT that is not related has no problems and neither do his relatives. I would love to know more about the ACV and omega-3 treatment.
