Send enquiry

Can dogs get sick from licking their paws? If they do, what should you do?

Dogs lick themselves for various reasons. Some do it because they want to cool off or clean themselves. Others do it out of boredom. Still others do it because they don't realize that they've got something stuck between their toes.

Itching is a common problem for dogs. The causes include fleas, allergies, parasites, skin conditions, and other problems. There are several natural remedies that can help relieve itching.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a great home remedy for dogs with fleas. Mix 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar with 2 cups water and spray on your dog's coat. Let dry then rinse off. Repeat daily until fleas are gone.

2. Garlic

Garlic is a natural insect repellent. Crush fresh garlic cloves and rub them on your dog's fur. Leave overnight and wash out in the morning. Do not use raw garlic!

3. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is a powerful antiseptic and disinfectant. Apply tea tree oil directly to your dog's skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes before washing off. Repeat twice a day until the problem is resolved.

4. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a soothing gel that helps heal burns and cuts. Cut open aloe vera leaf and squeeze the gel inside. Rub onto your dog's skin and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse off and repeat once a day until healed.

5. Lavender

Lavender is a calming scent that reduces anxiety and calms nervous behavior. Place dried lavender flowers in a bowl and cover with hot water. Steep for 20 minutes and strain. Add 1 teaspoon of lavender essential oil to the strained liquid and store in a small bottle. Use a few drops at a time to calm your dog.

6. Onion Juice

Onions have been proven to help reduce inflammation and swelling. Slice onions and place in a blender. Blend until smooth and strain. Store in a glass jar. Spray on your dog's inflamed area and allow to dry. Repeat several times per day until symptoms subside.

7. Salt Water

Salt water is a great way to clean your dog's ears. Fill a bucket half full of warm water and add 1 tablespoon salt. Dip your fingers in the salty water and gently wipe around your dog's ear canal. Be careful not to get any water in your dog's ear drum. Allow to air dry and apply antibiotic ointment if necessary.
