I don't often recommend box store store bought pet products. It's been my experience it's like throwing money out the window because IMHO none of them ever work.
We are on the road and not sure if one of my dogs got into something or something got him. And of course it had to be the one who's nick name is allergy boy, that almost died from an allergic reaction to of all things his rabies shot.
I saw the itching and the hot spot coming when I was packing up to head out. On the road several hours and when I pulled into the CG his back was now all swollen, hair gone, and bleeding and him going crazy flipping upside down in his crate scratching.
This really needed a trip to the vet but we are far from any vet so home remedy treatment is what I had to come up with. I had bought several items for my first aid kit so I dug out an itch relief spray I picked up at petsmart for just in case.
This itch relief spray ACTUALLY WORKS, doesn't burn like most do, no alcohol, and all natural. And most important for me is it is not cloaked/soaked in nasty heavy perfume smells. It has a nice light clean scent.
This stuff is incredible, IMHO just short of a miracle. I applied the spray on his back and within minutes the swelling went down, stopped bleeding and he is now resting and not scratching thank god. It's so nice when a product really does what it is supposed to. I give it a double thumbs up.
Way to go Martha!

We're going to give this a try. Oliver scratches a lot, but we've noticed since we've been in SD & now ND, he doesn't scratch nearly as much as when we're home in FL. I'm going to look for this tomorrow...thanks!

Thanks for the tip. Here is one I saw on Dr. Oz's show. I never tune in but was channel surfing and he had some cooking going on. Long story short he had a tiny segment showing a rememdy for dogs itching. Apple cider vinegar. Straight if the skin is not tender, cut 50 50 with water if raw. He said it worked very fast.
Thanks for the info! My Aussie is battling a hot spot right now. He is on antibiotics, and I've clipped the fur, and just when I think it is healing, it doesn't. I saw the apple cider vinegar remedy online and was afraid it would sting.
