Got an itchy, scratchy dog or cat?
Our Homemade Vinegar Rinse Recipe as an itchy skin remedy is a great solution for your pet’s allergies or skin irritation!
Making a vinegar rinse or spray is very easy and inexpensive.
Ingredients for an itchy skin remedy:
1 part water
1 part vinegar
Optional: Add a 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.
- The mixture can be either sprayed or dowsed on with a cloth. (Use whichever method is least stressful for your pet.)
- Be very generous and use a lot!
Vinegar is an antibacterial, anti-fungal, and helps to restore proper pH to your pet’s skin.
If you add lavender essential oil to the mix, your 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.
