Rosacea

Rosacea / Acne in dogs and cats.Pet supplement for rosacea, acne, pimples and sebaceous cysts in dogs and cats.

Herbal remedy that helps to treat acne (pimples) and sebaceous cysts.

Nutrition plays a major role in skin and bone health. Healthy skin and bones are a result of a well-functioning, synchronized effort by the immune system, tissues and organs in the body. Supplements can help support and maintain the skin's ability to withstand and repair the effects of allergies, topical skin wounds and dermal dysfunction, scars, burns plus environmental exposure to toxins, antigens and bacterial and viral microorganisms. 

Acne, also called rosacea, can affect animals and usually manifest as red bumps (papules) and blackheads (comedones) that develop on the chin and lip areas.  The follicles become blocked with black sebaceous material, causing blackheads. These blackheads may become irritated, swollen & infected, leading to pustules.

While these acne spots generally don’t bother your pet, they can become infected, after which they become itchy and painful. In some cases, hair loss (alopecia) and loss of pigmentation occurs.

Sebaceous glands secrete oils (sebum) which lubricate the skin, preventing dryness & irritation. The sebaceous glands are mostly found in dorsal, eyelids, chin, on the surface of the base of the tail, lips, scrotum and prepuce and are connected to the hair follicles.

The glands also play a role in territorial marking. Cats routinely rub their faces and chins against objects and leave greasy patches.

Feline Acne

Feline Acne is far more common than canine acne and tends to be a lifelong condition that is not limited to adolescent cats. It is commonly found on the cat's chin and lips but can occur in other areas and can affect cats of any age, sex or breed. Often symptoms are so mild they go unnoticed.

In cats, acne tends to begin at around 1 year old and can become part of a cycle, occurring, disappearing and repeating. The frequency may be intermittent or fairly chronic. While the exact cause of the acne is unknown, it assumed that it is a disease where the oil glands produce excessive amounts of oil.

Canine Acne

Canine Acne is fairly uncommon, although the condition tends to be more pronounced in short-haired breeds such as boxers, bulldogs, and Rottweiler’s.  Canine acne tends to present during puberty, between 5-8 months and most likely will resolve around the 1 year mark.   

A variety of reasons can be related to or cause acne, however, a number of factors include: 

stress

trauma

weakened immune system

food allergies

plastic food bowls (plastic traps bacteria and causes allergies)

the presence another disease or illness

poor grooming habits

overactive oil glands

blocked oil glands

disease of the oil glands resulting in excessive oil production

skin conditions such as dermatitis

hormonal changes

Because acne can look similar in appearance to other conditions, your holistic veterinarian may take skin scrapings and fungal cultures to rule out others, which include:

Demodicosis (a type of non-contagious mange)

Ringworm

Parasites

Puppy strangles (An illness affecting young puppies)

Fungal Infections

Your veterinarian may also recommend topical retinoids, benzoyl peroxide ointments and washes, topical antibiotics, steroids and oral retinoids. Oral retinoids are sometimes prescribed to cats with acne; however these can cause liver damage.
