Lesions, Skin Irritations

Herbal remedies for treating skin lesions, open sores and wound healing in dogs and cats.

The complexity of the immune system requires a multidimensional approach of nutritional factors directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated, providing nutritional and biochemical support for healthy immune response, to enhance the growth of healthy cells and tissues in the body’s defense mechanism for all types of arthritis, cancer and tumors, to protect healthy cellular response, to protect against invasion by potential allergens and pathogens, for most types of viral and bacterial diseases and diseases and for all types of inflammation and auto immune diseases.

Pets are susceptible to a variety of skin problems which often emerge as lesions. A lesion can be almost any abnormality involving the skin and can range from a small sore to a large wound.

Dogs and cats often suffer from the same skin irritations as we do. There are various types of skin irritations and problems which range from dermatitis, pruritus, seborrhoea, acne, eczema, lesions and warts. Animals usually start scratching, itching and biting themselves when their skin is irritated.

When the skin is irritated, the pet scratches, bites and chews at the infected site and becomes inflamed, quickly turning into a festering wound. The wet, raw skin is also a breeding ground for bacteria which can lead to further, more serious infections.

There are a number of causes that may bring about lesions and these include food and contact allergies as well as certain sensitivities to the environment such as frequent exposure to grass or water. Moisture on the skin and hot weather and humidity also causes hot spots which is very common amongst dogs with long hair and heavy undercoats.

Fleas, ear mites and ticks can also cause inflamed, festering lesions. Some lesions may occur as a result of dermatological, autoimmune or internal disorders such as bacterial infection, scabies, ringworm, lupus, liver disease or pancreatic tumor. Other causes such as excessive sunburn, a negative reactive to drugs and a build up of toxins may also contribute to lesions developing on your pet.

Red bumps, lesions, inflammation, hair loss and excessive licking of the paws are frequently common signs that the skin is irritated. Your dog or cat’s scratching and licking may get completely out of control and lead to infection which in turn may spread to other areas of the skin.

When skin irritation occurs, it is usually as a result of an allergic reaction to flea bites, food ingredients, inhaling certain substances or due to a yeast or bacterial infection. Sometimes, an underlying condition such as thyroid problems, a weakened immune system or a build up of toxins may also contribute to skin irritation developing.

There are several things that you can do to prevent and manage skin irritation in dogs and cats and these include:

Feed your pet high quality commercial food or an all natural diet without preservatives, colorants or additives.

Avoid making sudden changes to your pet’s diet. Gradually introduce new foods and then monitor what effect they have on your pet.

Use stainless steel or ceramic food and water bowls instead of plastic – plastic may cause an allergic reaction.

Avoid exposing your pet to irritants such as pollen, smoke, household detergents, fertilizer or pesticides.

Use a flea repellent recommended by your vet to get rid of fleas.

Bathe your pet as directed by your vet, with a medicated shampoo specifically prescribed for his skin type if he suffers from skin problems.

Make sure that pets with long haired coats are clipped or shaved to make bathing easier.

Clean your home thoroughly by vacuuming carpets and dusting furniture to ease both you and your pet’s respiratory allergies.

Include omega 3 fatty acid supplements to your pet’s diet to help condition the skin.

Use products specifically prescribed for your pet’s skin type and avoid using human and over-the-counter products.

Detox your pet regularly to get rid of unwanted toxins.

Keep your pet’s living clean by disinfecting regularly.
