How Does It Work?
Skin Care for Dogs is effective on skin problems including hot spots because it uses the following unique 4 stage system:
1. Natural disinfectants (Eucalyptus Oil) quickly kills the infection throughout the dermal layers.
2. A skin protectant (Allantoin) promotes rapid tissue healing.
3. Olive Oil discourages your pet from biting and scratching the irritated area.
4. Natural analgesics (Menthol), quickly relieve the irritating sensation, providing quick soothing relief for your pet.
Skin Care for Dogs is the most technologically advanced comprehensive and effective system ever developed to treat canine skin problems including "hot spots".
What Is A Hot Spot?
A hot spot is the nickname given to a condition called pyotraumatic dermatitis. A hot spot consists of a bacterial infection (usually staphylococcus intermedius) that develops and rapidly spreads in the skin. A hot spot will be warm to the touch, painful to your dog and will emit pus and smell badly. Hair will usually fall out from the infected area. Because this condition is so painful and irritating the dog will usually bite and scratch the area further spreading the infection. Treatment should be started as soon as possible to prevent the infection from becoming systemic.
Reduces Biting and Licking While Treating Infection
Dogs often bite or lick infected areas. In many cases, such as hot spots and lick granuloma, the licking and chewing is detrimental and prevents healing or spreads the infection. Skin Care for Dogs helps eliminate this problem. Its menthol base tastes badly to most dogs and deters biting and licking. Consequently, wounds and infections heal faster.
CLINICAL STUDIES PROVE EFFECTIVENESS.....
A survey of 106 canine owners with dogs having chronic hot spot conditions showed that Skin Care for Dogs improved the hot spot condition within 3 days for 92% of the dogs. After 7 days of use, Skin Care for Dogs improved the hot spot condition for 98% of the dogs.
An in vitro clinical study which consisted of 2 separate trials (performed by an independent micro- biological testing facility) proved that Skin Care for Dogs killed 99.9% of the Staphylococcus intermedius bacteria (the "hot spot" causing bacteria) within 1 minute of contact time.
Hot Spots can be triggered by allergies. While it is recommended to use Skin Care to clear up the skin infection, seeking treatment for the allergy itself is also suggested. This can reduce or eliminate hot spot outbreaks in some dogs. If you think your dog's hot spot problem is due to allergies contact your vet.
