Got an itchy, scratchy dog or cat?
Our Homemade Vinegar Rinse for Itchy Pets is a great solution for pet’s allergies or skin irritation!
Making a vinegar rinse or spray is very easy and inexpensive.
Homemade Vinegar Rinse Recipe:
1 part water
1 part vinegar
Optional: Add few drops of lavender essential oil.
- Pour all ingredients into a spray bottle or covered container.
- Apply generously to affected areas 2-3 times daily.
- Mixture can be either sprayed or dowsed on with a cloth. (Use whichever method is least stressful for your pet.)
- Be very generous, use a lot!
Vinegar is antibacterial, anti-fungal, and will help to restore proper pH to your pet’s skin.
If you add lavender essential oil to the mix, you pet will benefit from lavender’s additional analgesic, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties.
If your dog has open sores and acts like the solution stings, just add more water to the mixture.
