How Does It Work?
Skin Care for Dogs is effective on skin problems including hot spots because it uses an unique four stage system:
1. Eucalyptus Oil: A natural disinfectant which quickly kills the infection throughout the dermal layers.
2. Allantoin: A skin protectant which promotes rapid tissue healing.
3. Olive Oil: Soothes and moisturizes dog’s dry skin.
4. Menthol: A natural analgesic that quickly relieves the irritating sensation, providing quick, soothing relief for your pet. Menthol also discourages your dog from biting and licking the irritated area.
Skin Care for Dogs is the most technologically advanced, comprehensive and What Is A Hot Spot?
effective system ever developed to treat canine skin problems including “hot spots.” Skin Care for Dogs is effective in treating and relieving hot spots, allergic dermatitis, dry skin, and other common skin infections.
Pyotraumatic dermatitis, more commonly known as 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, 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. More information on Canine Hot Spots.
Reduces Biting and Licking While Treating Infection - Aids Lick Granuloma
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 and/or spreads the infection. Dr. Dog Skin Care for Dogs helps eliminate this problem. Its menthol base tastes badly to most dogs and deters biting and licking. It also soothes itching quickly helping reduce the dog's desire to lick or bite the affected area. Consequently, wounds and infections heal faster.
Clinical Studies Prove Effectiveness106 canine owners surveyed showed that Skin Care for Dogs improved hot spot conditions 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 one 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.
