Itch-scratch-itch-scratch-itch!!!

As humans we take pride in the health of our skin and for our pets this approach should be taken no less earnestly. The state of your dog’s skin is a very clear indication of his/her overall health. There are many culprits that cause skin problems, such as itchy skin, to arise. We all know what it’s like to feel an itch or two, but our beloved pets really appear to get the worst of it. Scratching incessantly until their skin is raw and bleeding - and even then the itch isn’t gone!

What is Regal’s Skin Care Remedy?

This anti-itch herbal remedy will help address skin allergies including flea bites, eczema, rashes and hot spots. For healthy skin and a glossy coat. No more irritation for you or your furry friend!

Regal’s Skin Care Remedy is comprised of these herbal ingredients:

What are the most common symptoms of skin problems?

  • Scratching, biting, chewing or licking the skin
  • Redness, inflammation
  • Rashes
  • Dry, flaky and irritated-looking skin
  • Hot spots (refers to an area that has been particularly affected due to intense scratching)
  • Hair loss or bald patches
  • Scabs
  • Round scaly areas that appear on the face and/or paws
  • Tendency to rub face on objects such as furniture
  • Lesions
  • Skin discolouration, swelling, lumps
  • Drainage of blood or pus

What are the main causes of skin problems in dogs?

Skin allergies are one of the most common skin problems faced by our four-legged friends, commonly exhibiting behaviours such as excessive scratching, biting, chewing and/or licking. There are a number of causes that can lead to both acute and chronic skin conditions. These include:

  • Seasonal allergies are a common culprit for itchy skin as some dogs develop a sensitivity to allergens (just like many of us do!) such as pollen, dust, grass, mold, weeds, trees or mites to name but a few.
  • Food allergies are another main underlying cause for itchy skin and rashes due to a compromised immune system in reaction to any number of common ingredients found in dog food e.g. wheat, soy, corn, beef or chicken. Colourants and fillers can also cause an allergic reaction in your dog. So if you suspect a food allergy, it’s important to consult with your vet to help determine what it is.
  • Fleas are a persistent pest for dogs as their bite and droppings can easily irritate your pooch’s skin. Some dogs develop an allergy to the saliva from a flea’s bite known as fleabite dermatitis. Dogs can also develop an irritation from flea-prevention products such as flea collars.
  • External parasites such as lice and ear mites can cause skin reactions.
  • Ringworm is a fungal infection that is highly contagious – symptoms usually include inflammation, scaly areas on the skin and hair loss. If you suspect your pet has a ringworm infection it’s important to treat it immediately to avoid the infection spreading throughout your household!
  • Yeast or bacterial skin infections can develop secondary to skin allergy or from another skin problem e.g. sarcoptic mange
  • Sarcoptic mange is an infection that is caused by Sarcoptes scabei mites leading not only to inflammation but extreme itching as well – which can be commonly mistaken as an allergic reaction instead.
  • Compulsive behaviour due to stress or boredom can also lead to excessive licking and scratching. Pets that don’t get enough exercise or mental stimulation or those under emotional stress can display obsessive compulsive behaviours such as continuous licking of the legs
  • Hormonal imbalances can lead to changes in the skin including discolouration of the skin, uneven fur thickness and distribution.
  • Seasonal changes can lead to skin changes e.g. some dogs become prone to dry, flaky skin during the winter period.

As there are so many causes of skin problems, when you notice any changes in your dog’s skin or coat it’s important to consult with your vet. Usually a vet will perform a variety of tests to determine the cause including a skin scrape, skin smears, testing for ringworm or parasites, skin biopsy, blood tests (to test your dog’s overall health) and allergy testing. Once you know the cause of your dog’s skin problem, you will find there are a number of safe and effective treatment options available including herbal remedies.

Are some breeds more prone to developing skin conditions?

Due to there being so many causes of skin problems in dogs (as you can see, the list is indeed long!), all breeds can be susceptible in one way or another. Typically dogs living under stressful conditions or those who have a compromised immune system will be more vulnerable to developing some form of skin condition - as are puppies and elderly dogs.

Encouraging skin and coat health the holistic way

There is a lot you can do day-to-day to ensure your dog has a shiny, healthy and vibrant coat!

  • Start off by feeding your dog a healthy, well-balanced diet that ideally contains fresh rather than artificial ingredients and is rich in essential fatty acids.
  • Stay away from harsh shampoos and opt for natural, hypoallergenic soaps that are formulated especially for dogs.
  • Don’t bathe your dog too often as this can strip away the coat’s natural oils leaving it dry and brittle.
  • Avoid matting of hair by brushing your dog on a regular basis, making sure you never brush against the hair growth.
  • Minimize the collection of dust by regularly cleaning and vacuuming your house and ensure you give your pet the calm, loving environment that he or she needs to thrive and feel waggiliciously happy.
  • While natural remedies can help discourage fleas, it is important to have a flea-prevention programme in place. Chat with your vet for further guidance.
  • Investigate natural options such as herbal remedies that can address skin and coat problems without the harsh side effects that often accompany corticosteroids and anti-histamines that are frequently prescribed for itchy pets.

An excellent product!!Review by Jennifer

When we relocated from Durban to Cathcart in 2005, Bear, our minature dashund/Jack Russel cross began to suffer from a dreadful skin condition. We spent a fortune on vets and medication....but Bear never got better. In addition he developed melanoma on his back, next to his spine and adenoma on his backside and his fur was so depleted in patches all over that he was (with sorrow but great love) called "baldy Bear". The constant cortisone medication (oral and ointment) prescribed by the vets weakened his heart and his kidneys ...and he was prescribed Fortekor. I saw your advert on TV and purchased Regal Skin Care syrup and spray and started putting the former on Bear's breakfast and dinner and spraying him in the morning and at night. Bear is no longer "Baldy Bear" but a very furry and happy dog - all the bald patches (and there were many) are now covered with fur and Bear has stopped continually scratching and fretting. Thank you so much! (Posted on 7/19/2017)
Itchy PumbaReview by Jean
Our Service
I ran out of Skin Care Remedy shortly before Christmas and thought we could do without it for a few weeks. How wrong I was :( Pumba has gone back to itching constantly and has red inflamed skin and fur loss. In desperation I ordered more online which arrived 4 days ago and I can already see a slight improvement in that she's not as itchy or red and inflamed. I fear it will take a while to get her back to where she was but I now know never to be without the skin remedy again! (Posted on 1/12/2017)

Relief of skin irritationReview by Maureen
Our Service
After excessive scratching Cassidy was reluctantly put on cortisone treatment by the vet which gave her immediate relief. Cassidy is on Bravecto so it wasn't a tick/flea problem. After a couple of months she started scratching again and because of the vet's initial reluctance to treat her with cortisone I decided to go to Regal route. Within days the scratching reduced. Cassidy has now been on the treatment for 5 weeks. The skin irritation has disappeared and she no longer scratches herself continuously. (Posted on 11/11/2016)

HAPPY YOUNG LADYReview by Tammy
Our Service
My little girl, Ruby started becoming allergic to grass especially in the summer and eczema throughout the year. She use to lick herself until her skin became raw and sore and kept us up at night with the constant licking. I tried other stuff but it worked only for a short period at a time. I then started her on the Skin Care Remedy by adding the liquid to her food every morning. Since giving her the Skin Care Remedy her skin has recovered remarkably...... no more licking..... Absolutely miracle product.... (Posted on 9/9/2016)
