Hi
Anyone else noticed any skin problems after you're dog's been in the sea? I've been making sure my dog has a good wash afterwards to get the salt out but she's itching like a mad thing. Any suggestions on how I can ease things for her?

Suggestions welcome

Although I don't know if it will help in your specific case, oatmeal based dog shampoos are excellent for helping with itchy skin. Something along those lines may well be worth a try.

Well IMO, I have heard if you bathe your dog a lot their skin gets dry, so maybe it's driness, I'm not sure though but it's just a thought...



Good luck

There's a shampoo called neem
http://www.theneemteam.co.uk/cgi-bin...html%23a12#a12

sorry about the long url - lol - but there is also

Pure Neem Oil
100% pure, cold pressed, wild-crafted Neem Oil.
For severe inflammation or itching, apply directly to the skin for soothing relief. A few drops may also be added to your own pet shampoo.



The other alternative is to take your dog swimming in non-salt water.
