Home Remedies For Dry Skin

1. Cleaning And Hygiene:

Introduce grooming in an encouraging way to the dogs and make them create a nice association with the grooming process. With a clean, damp washcloth, clean the dog's skin folds and coat daily using shampoo, ointment, spray, lotion, skin cleanser, and wipes. Regular brushing of the dog reduces shedding. To begin with, a slicker brush and a soft-bristle brush are really all that you need. Grooming the dog regularly distributes the sebum of the skin all over the body. Use a mild, organic, hypoallergenic shampoo and conditioner and keep their coat clean and fresh.

2. Brace Up The Dog Skin Diet:

Choose a minimally-processed, nutritious food that is free of chemicals, colorings, toxic additives, and preservatives. Select foods free of allergens (hypoallergenic) by diagnostic testing and provide a balanced diet (without flavors. thickeners, coatings). Try food sensitivity testing and go for an elimination diet - addition or exclusion of certain foods for a short period of time and checking for adverse reactions.

3. Dog Skin Nourishing Oils:

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight skin aging and dry skin. While your dog couldn’t care less about maintaining its youthful glow, she can still benefit from Vitamin E oil as it prevents skin issues. Take a little coconut oil in your palms and rub it over your pet’s fur smoothly or lightly brush the fur. Coconut oil lotions can also relieve skin inflammation and dry skin. Other essential oils that can be used for dry skin are Cedarwood, Jojoba, Rose, Carrot seed, Lavender, and Olive oil.

4. Keep The Dog Hydrated:

Encourage your dog to drink a lot of water by making rice water or adding some chicken or beef broth to his water. Make your dog drink enough water by placing a water fountain or water bowl close to the pet area.
