Comprehensive Skin Care for Pets
What are the reasons that pets develop prolonged skin problems that are not due to bacteria or disease? Could it be that environmental stress from people and surroundings are making them scratch excessively? Or could it simply be the lack of regular care and hygiene that causes hair loss?
If measures are taken to address these issues but your pet continues to have skin problems, we at Canine to Five can offer some natural long-standing solutions to improve the health of your pet’s skin by tackling issues from both the inside and outside.
Internal Skin Care
“You are what you eat” Food provides necessary nutrients to the body and builds new cells. Improving your pet’s diet will help boost their immunity and improve their ability to naturally heal skin conditions.
It is also important to remember that up to 60% of a pet’s body mass is water, just like humans. Naturally, we assume that food includes moisture, will help get rid of the toxins.
While internal therapy is effective, it can be a slow process that can take a few weeks up to a few years to show improvements. Moreover, in some cases, the condition may worsen before it gets better.
Itchiness can also cause sleep deprivation in pets, which in turn decreases their immunity and increases their stress. To see your beloved companion suffer will also cause you stress and this can easily become a vicious cycle.
When your pet is attempting to heal naturally, it is important to relieve them from discomfort and itchiness. While there are benefits in the short-term use of medication under a care and a supervision by a reliable veterinarian, it is not a suitable long-term solution. This is where external skin care can become fare more effective.
External Skin Care
First thing is to stop the band-aid treatments. It’s fine for a quick fix, but for long term healing results, it is not the best way. Using steroids and medicated shampoos can help bad skin situations get under control, but long term use of these products can lead to serious health problems. The best way to help and support your dog’s allergies is to incorporate a more natural approach to skin care course of therapy. Nutrition, and lifestyle changes, along with patience, and natural systematic skin care program will help achieve more improved and consistent long-term results.
