Make sure you hit that like button, because I’m here to tell you, I’ve done a lot in the pet world, but I know the feeling. The dog that just is in pain and misery and you want to help him so bad.

of dollars at the vet just trying to figure out what it is that’s causing your dog
that itching and that pain. And let me tell you, it can be painful. It can lead to non-stop licking of paws and pain and open wounds. So you’re probably asking yourself, “What can I do?” Great, you’ve come to the right place. I’m going to go through
16 all-natural ways that I’ve found that really
works well for my dog. I’m not a vet, so make sure
you consult with your vet if the situation is extreme. But, these 16 all-natural remedies, they can go a long way. I know this because I’ve
tried way more than 16, and these are the ones that
I really narrowed down, that I saw working
first hand with my pets. Okay, let’s go through
all 16 of these items. Now, I might go through
some of them pretty quickly, but no worries, you
don’t have to take notes. I’m going to put all the info down below. Most of these items are free, but there are some really good links that I’ll add in there, that’ll take you directly to
some things that you need, so make sure you click
those and check back. (upbeat music) Vitamin E. Just like it’s great for your skin, help clear up wrinkles, it helps soothe dog’s
skin and make it healthy. What’s great about Vitamin E, is you can break it open
and apply it directly to your dog’s skin. Just rub it in there and not only will they love the massage, but it has great results for their skin. Yogurt. Feeding your dog plain low-fat
yogurt has amazing results. Now, just use a small amount, but it can help with
clearing up yeast infections all the way to relieving itchy skin. With the yogurt, start small. Make sure your dog’s
digestive system can handle it and you can always build up, but it’ll give you really good results. Tea. Camomile tea and herbal tea. So put it in a sprayer like this, put it in the fridge and let it chill. Believe it or not, the chilled tea will kill bacteria and yeast, and it will even reduce
and relieve inflammation. Also, when my dog starts
chewing on her paws, I like to spray her paws
with that actual tea. It really helps and within minutes, she’s not chewing on her paws as much. Or, I’ll take her paws, if she’ll let me, if she’s calm enough, or if I have treats, and I’ll put her paws just
right into the cold tea and just hold them there
for a minute or two and pet her and soothe her. And that seems to have
really good effects as well. Oatmeal. Okay, now you’ve probably
heard of this one before, but it is one of the
tops and it really works. Oatmeal will soothe their skin, so grind it up in a coffee
grinder or in a blender. Put them in the bath and
just rub it into their skin. If your dog’s horrified of baths, try bringing your dog
into the shower with you and you can put that
oatmeal in a cup or a pan, and then just put that oatmeal on your dog while you’re taking a bath or a shower. It will really help. Now if you don’t have time to do that, you can definitely buy a pre-made oatmeal shampoo
and conditioner in one. There are lots of good ones out there. Now if you don’t have time to do that, buying a pre-made oatmeal
shampoo conditioner is definitely a good idea, but they are not all created equal, so make sure you get the right one. I’ll put a link down below
for one that’s really good. An Epsom salt bath. Epsom salt really helps if
there are any open wounds. It’ll help your dog heal faster. If you’ve gone to the vet and the vet’s given you antibiotics, that combined with an Epsom salt bath, it will work miracles. Evening Primrose Oil. Now, here’s why I like this one so much, because not only can you get an oil where you can apply that just
topically right to your dog, but you can also give
your dog a primrose pill. And that’ll really help calm any allergies and boost their immune system. Eucalyptus Conditioner. You could definitely make this stuff and it’s not too difficult. So take a teaspoon of the
actual dried eucalyptus, or two tablespoons of fresh eucalyptus, and put it in a pint of
boiling water for 10 minutes. Then, let that cool down, and as a final step in your dog’s bath, go ahead and pour that over your dog, rub it into their skin, and then just immediately
dry them off with a towel. Don’t rinse that off. It will soak into your dog’s skin, and not only will it
help calm their itching, but it’s also a natural flea repellent, so that’ll go a long
way in the summertime. If you don’t have the time to do that, again, I’ll put a link down below so that you can just get
a shampoo or conditioner. Just make sure you get the right one. Again, they’re not all created equal. It’ll cost a little bit more, but it’ll be worth every dime. Dry Shampoo. I get it, you’re going, “Rocky, these are all really great ideas. “Why don’t you come over to my house “and try and get my
dog into the bath tub.” I know, some dogs, no matter what you do, it just won’t work. So, I’ve got the answer for you, a dry shampoo. It works wonders. So, here’s what you do. You take oatmeal, you grind it up, you put it in the oven for 5 minutes. Let it just get warm, and then you take a handful of that, put it in a towel, and
then you take that towel, and you rub your dog down with it. Now, it’s going to be a little
messy and a little dirty, so make sure you do it somewhere you can sweep up or outside, but it’s going to go a long way. It’s going to help. And if your dog doesn’t like taking baths, it’ll remove the smell anyways. It’ll help, trust me. Try this one. If you don’t have time
to make that mixture, then you could definitely
buy a dry shampoo as well. So again, I’ll put the
link down below for that. Essential Oil Shampoo. Now, we’ve talked about
some essential oils, but an actual essential oil shampoo will work wonders for
your dog with itchy skin. You could make your own, or you could buy an essential oil shampoo, it’s worth the while. It could be fleas. You don’t think it’s allergies. You don’t think it’s the diet. It could be something as simple as fleas. IF you want, you could
make an herbal flea powder. I’m going to put all the
info down below on that. It’s a little bit longer of a recipe, so I’m not going to kill you with all the details in this video. And I’ll put one that you can just pick up to make things easier. Natural Skin Tonic. This natural skin tonic
that’s lemon-based, will go a long way. I’m going to put the recipe down below. I’ll also put some items you can pick up that have kind of direct spray so you can really target that area. Baking Soda. 50% water, 50% baking soda, rub it on your dog’s area, leave it on for 20 minutes
and it’s fantastic. Apple Cider Vinegar. This new, take a 50/50% mix, you spray it on your dog, perfect. Aspirin Mix. Take the aspirin, crush it up. Put a little bit of rubbing alcohol and rub that on the itchy area. Now watch your dog closely on this one. Make sure they’re not licking the area. Do not administer this one by mouth. Be very careful with this one, but this can also help
relieve itchy areas. Brush you dog everyday. Here’s the thing. It’s simple so you
often overlook this one, but brushing your dog every single day, goes a long way and here’s why. When your dog’s skin is itchy, inflammatory blood cells and chemical compounds
such as histamine, add up. So by brushing your
dog on a regular basis, it helps reduce that. Coconut. Whether it’s the oil or flakes
or lots of different forms, it goes a long way with
helping dogs with itchy skins. I’ve done a video on this. I’ll link it up above here. Make sure you check it out, because it’ll really help. Hey look, sometimes you’ve
