Natural Support for Dermatitis, Mange and Skin Infections
Your pup's skin is their largest organ! And because of this, their skin is constantly susceptible to infection, airborne irritants, icky biting insects and much more. Your furkiddo will scratch and bite when they are feeling stressed and have ouchies on their body. This obsessive behavior can introduce unwanted bacteria, whether it is from the environment or your pup’s own body, which can lead to infection. An itchy, inflamed ‘dog hot spot’ can be the end result. If these dog hot spots are left untreated, they can progress to secondary skin infections, abscesses or even metastatic tumors (eg. carcinoma). Ouch Away spray, dog skin infection spray, helps heal inflamed, itchy skin and promotes hair regrowth.
How NHV's Dog Skin Infection Spray Relieves Irritated Skin
Since your pup’s skin is their largest organ, it probably doesn't surprise you that skin issues are the most common health concern in dogs. These include (but are not limited to) dermatitis, mange and skin infections.
Dermatitis in dogs is a hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to a variety of common and typically harmless environmental substances. These allergens include grasses, pollens, house dust mites, or mold spores. Breeds predisposed to developing allergies include Chinese Shar-Peis, Wire Fox Terriers, Golden Retrievers, Dalmatians, Boxers, Boston Terriers, Labrador Retrievers, Lhasa Apsos, Scottish Terriers, Shih Tzus, and West Highland White Terriers. However, any breed (purebred or mixed) can be susceptible to allergies. The areas most affected are generally the paws, face, ears, front legs, and abdomen, but scratching all over the body is fairly common too. Ouch Away Spray for dog skin infections, contains ingredients like Chamomile, Marigold and Aloe vera that cools and soothes wounds, burns and irritated skin while strengthening the immune system.
The most common signs of dermatitis in dogs are:
- Overall itchiness
- Greasy and/or red skin
- Possible foul odor and/or smelly discharge
- Scaly, crusty, and/or flaky skin
- Thickened skin, aka 'elephant skin'
- Darkly pigmented skin (hyperpigmentation)
- Chronic or recurring ear infections
Dog mange is caused by mites and can lead to inflamed skin and nasty sores. Scabies or sarcoptic mange is contagious and is transmissible to humans. Black mange is not transmissible to humans due to it being a genetic condition. Secondary bacterial and yeast infections may develop if left untreated while sores on the skin can build up and release a powerful musty odor. You can learn more about mange and how to help your dog if they are suffering from it in Dr. Cook's article on mange. Ingredients like Rosemary, Tea Tree oil and Lemongrass oil, within the Ouch Away Spray, are effective topically against external parasites, combating skin infections and helping to stimulate fur regrowth (from constant biting and scratching).

What causes mange in dogs?
In dogs, the two most common mites that cause mange are sarcoptic mange and demodectic mange. Sarcoptic mange is contagious in humans while demodectic mange is not. To support your pup with mites, we recommend going to your pet care professional to get a vet-prescribed antiparasitic medication and pairing it with nutrient therapy to strengthen their immune health and alleviate symptoms. Supplements we recommend to strengthen immune health and reduce symptoms are: NHV Nature’s Immuno, NHV Petomega 3, NHV Multi Essentials, NHV Stimmune, and NHV Ouch Away Spray (topical use)
How can I treat my dog’s hair loss?
In addition to treating the underlying cause of hair loss, with traditional medications, holistic remedies are recommended as well.
Diet really helps improve the symptoms of skin disease— a home-cooked diet and perhaps even a hypoallergenic diet can be extremely beneficial. Adding vitamin C and bioflavonoids are strongly recommended.
NHV Petomega-3 is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids which are beneficial for improving circulation and improving skin and coat health.
