5 Natural, At-Home Remedies to Help Your Pet

1. Vitamin E to Help with Dry Skin

Have you ever wondered how to treat dry skin on dogs? You can give your pup a doggy massage by applying vitamin E oil directly to the skin, a soaking bath with vitamin E added to the water, or orally via pill.If you give the vitamin orally, check with your vet on the recommended dosage for your specific dog breed.

2. Electrolyte-Enhanced Liquids for Diarrhea and Vomiting

Flavorless electrolyte-enhanced liquids, like sports waters or pediatric drinks supply your sick pups’ body with much needed fluids after a period of diarrhea or vomiting. Consult your vet as to the appropriate amount when giving these types of liquids to your dog.

3. Yogurt and Acidophilus for Dogs

Plain yogurt is a healthy treat for your dog.Just as with humans, the live acidophilus in the yogurt keeps the good bacteria in your dog's intestines in check, so that bad bacteria are annihilated. If your dog is on antibiotics, a little yogurt will also help keep yeast infections at bay (a common side-effect of antibiotic treatment). You can also give your dog acidophilus pills. Using Probios® Pro Pill Pods™ would be a great way to help your pup take the pill!

4. Chamomile Tea for Dogs

Chamomile tea uses the natural disinfecting effects of the chamomile plant to settle upset tummies. It is recommended for colic, gas, and anxiety. Just chill in the fridge and spray onto the affected area on the dog's raw skin.

5. Oatmeal to Stop Your Dog from Itching

An itchy dog can be quite an annoying, especially as it goes around scratching itself on any piece of furniture it can find. Finely ground oatmeal is a traditional remedy for irritated skin. You can use baby oatmeal cereal or grind it yourself in a food processor. Stir the oatmeal into a bath of warm water and let your dog soak.
