    Itchy pets sometimes scratch so much that their skin becomes raw. Once in a while these skin lesions even erupt spontaneously.

    Regardless of cause (and I strongly urge treatment of the underlying dis-ease along with this topical treatment)here is an easy meted to help:

    1. Remove any hair in the area. Many of these spots are already hairless, but they can all benefit from exposing the area to the air. Careful shaving (using a clipper or by a groomer) is essential.

    2. Use gentle cloths or paper towel saturated (then squeezed dry) with green tea to clean any discharge or scabbing of the lesion. Then dry throughly.

    3. Massage in fresh (organic when possible) aloe vera. Leave a thin coating of aloe on the wound. Coat the aloe with cayenne pepper. The cayenne both will aid healing and act as a deterrent to licking for many pets.

    Repeat steps 2 and 3 2-3x daily or as needed.

    Watch rapid healing occur (and of course see your vet if your pet is not improving).

    Please let me know how this method works for you.

    We will try the supplements. Our Dog Dasher who is 14 has never gotten accustomed to anyone touching her sensitive spots so we can’t clip hair or apply topicals.
