DOGS WITH ALLERGIES - How I discovered Home Remedies and Natural Remedies for Dogs

Natural Remedies for Dogs (and Cats too)

After adopting my 1st puppy, “Buttons” a Schnauzer mix from the animal shelter, I discovered that she was a dog with allergies.  As a puppy, Buttons would itch and scratch constantly.  After trying lots of medications including steroids and antibiotics (which compromised her immune system), I finally tried natural remedies for dogs and had great success.  This is our journey...

I adopted my first precious furry baby, "Buttons" a Schnauzer mix breed from North Shore Animal League. Even as a puppy Buttons would itch and scratch terribly from seasonal allergies and hot spots. I did the usual, brought oatmeal soap and conditioners and took her to Vet after Vet who gave her steroids, antihistamines, antibiotics, ointments and salves. She seemed to have seasonal allergies and was particularly miserable in the Spring and Summer months with some relief in the Fall and Winter. But as her allergies worsened it seemed that she was suffering year-round.

Even with all the medications she was taking, she was still suffering and at times was literally covered from head to toe in crusty hot spots. I have to admit when it got really bad and I thought I had no other choice, I considered putting her down; I felt she was just suffering too much. I would watch her scratch, lick and bite herself constantly until her skin was red and raw. Buttons seemed like she was in agony and I felt absolutely helpless and guilty. Guilty because I felt I wasn't doing all I could do to help get her relief.

Thankfully before I made that decision, I did some research on natural remedies and home remedies to treat dogs with allergies from a holistic stand point using natural remedies for dogs. I even found a Holistic Vet, but at $450 for an initial visit, it was out of my reach. In my research I discovered that there might be several things causing her dog allergies. I decided to start with her food and by elimination discovered that she was highly allergic to chicken. Chicken, in one form or another, was in just about everything she ate, even stuff labeled beef or lamb. By eliminating chicken in all forms, her allergies improved about 50%. This success fueled further research and I found all natural cures for dogs with allergies, that were safe herbal home remedies that would treat her allergies, cleanse the toxins out of her immune system and rebuild her immune system.

I started Buttons on a regime of natural home remedies for dogs which included herbal remedies designed to cleanse her body of harmful toxins and heavy metals and immune system support and rebuilding. I also gave her a daily supplement of Probiotics, digestive enzymes and herbs to support her immune system. Probiotics puts back healthy bacteria in the pet's system. In addition, the herbal remedies help to boost the immune system which unlike antibiotics, does not destroy the friendly bacteria in the system but helped to boost the immune system so it could better respond to pathogens.

Well, I am happy to say that Buttons is no longer suffering from the horrible allergy symptoms she once had. I have also had the Vet comment more than once about how healthy she is for her age. I have also learned how to rid my dogs of fleas, ticks and ear infections, using all natural remedies and home remedies for dogs. My dogs spend lots of time in our yard in the spring and summer and never wear a flea or tick collar and have rarely gotten fleas. Buttons is my 'golden puppy' as her vitality and playfulness rivals that of my 1 year old puppy, Basha.

My dog sounds so much like Buttons. We have been through years of steroids, antihistamines etc. We had blood work done and have been on allergy inj for a yr. She was tested for grass, dust mites and trees. That is what the inj are for. She has a skin fungus and is so smelly and greasy but is allergiec to all the shampoo they have tried to cure with. What a journey this has been.
We have recently found she is allergic to herbs, lamb,rice, chicken and venision. She is holding on a diet of carrots and potatoes. I am looking for a balance veggie diet. Right now she is so itchie that she has been bleeding and has a rash from a commercial food we tried.
I have been to several Vets and even a Derm Dr. If anyone could help me, Please. Thank You

Stacey said...


I know what you are going through, as I have definately been there. What I would encourage you to do is to start cleasing your dogs system to flush out the toxins. That is when I started to see the greatest relief with Button's allergies. Try a diet of rabbit, beef, osterich, turkey etc. Unfortunately medications do little more than mask and push the syptoms further into your pets system. Please send me your email address and I will provide you with additional information.

All the best,

Micky Bernal said...

I know exactly how you feel. 5 years ago i bought my first german shephard, kees hound mix from the pound. Not even a month after i got him home he was itching incessantly. After much trial and error with many vet visits, medications and suffering i found that a raw diet was the only remedy. I now make all of the food for him at home. If you like i can send you the recipe! I wish you the best of luck with buttons!

Stacey said...

Hi Micky,

I am so glad to hear that your dog has gotten better. You are a wonderful and responsible pet owner to think "outside the box" to help your pet. Bravo!

I would love to have the raw food recipe that you are using. May I share it here on my blog for other pet owners to benefit from? Please let me know.

Chris said...

This sounds very familiar. Shadow, our lab puppy, started rubbing his face on virtually anything when he reached around 11 months old. Not long after that, he woke up one morning with his right eye almost swollen shut.

After a trip to the vet, we found out he had allergies. Since I had switched him from the puppy to adult food (same brand), we started researching the new food he was on.

As a result of the research, we switched him to a hypo-allergenic food. He has now been on this for about 2 weeks, and I can already see improvement in his face and his coat is starting to come back.

It is such a wonderful change.


Stacey said...

Hi Cutecute,

Welcome to my blog and hope you can find helpful info on natural pet care in it for your dog.

As far as shampoos are concerned, I would go with all natural such as Manage Mites Shampoo. Or you can try oatmeal soap or a natural baby shampoo. Don't forget to condition with something natural too.

In regards to your dogs inner elbow still being red, try putting raw aloe vera, natural vitamin E or olive oil (olive oil is great added to your dog's food too) on the spot or you can try Clenzor to clean the area and Allergy Itch Ease to heal the area.

Keep reading the labels on everything including treats to make sure you are eliminating chicken (including chicken fat, digest, meal) in all forms.

Cleansing your pet's system can be started simply by using Skin & Coat Tonic which support skin health, supports immune system health, maintains liver, kidney and thyroid functioning.

I will email you these details and if you need more assistance please let me know.

Stacey said...

We live in area of Texas where we suffer from cedar allergies. Our pets also exhibit symptoms of this allergy. Recently we started using cedar oil as an aromotheraphy and it is working great. I even let our two dogs smell it and it seems to have helped their symptoms. They readily want to sniff the cedar oil.

Dog Itching Remedy said...


I personally am a big fan of incorporating raw food into my dog's diet for his allergies and skin problems. My poor AmStaff has had food allergies since he was a puppy, but I had no idea exactly what he was allergic to. He's three now is is doing much better, but I still monitor him and his new diet carefully.

Borage oil is apparently higher in GLA than many other supplements available on the market, and can be used to help prevent a dog from having itchy, sore, irritated skin. Brewer's yeast is another great addition to a dog's daily diet for skin and coat health. Supplementing my dog's diet with borage oil and brewer's yeast has really helped his severe allergies and ear infections.

Crittertrail said...

Just like with people the acception of many medicines is not always the best choice. Chemicals cannot be entirely harmless. My little pug also had an allergy of the eyes and I know how awful it could be.

Stacey said...

Hello new visitors,

Crittertrail, - Medicines prescribed by Vets or Doctors usually come with a long list of side effects, some seem worse than the actual condition they are treating. Herbal and homeopathic remedies work with the body to heal the problem not just the symptom your dog or cat is experiencing. In addition to a holistic diet as Dog Itching Remedy mentions - your pet will maintain optimum health and vitality.

Wow, sorry to hear that your dog had seasonal allergies. I never heard of any dog getting any allergies from anything, but that's just me and I have had about 7 dogs in my life. I've had seasonal allergies though so I know what your poor dog was going through!! I really like your blog, keep up all the good work!

Beds For Dogs said...

Skin problems seen in dogs and cats are pretty common and the cause of it are many. It could be an allergy as in your dog's case. Some may be allergic to the type of food being fed to them while others may be allergic to flea bites. Food allergy may be difficult to diagnose as it could be anything within the food that you give them eg, the preservatives used in the food, a type of meat, or even colourings within the food may trigger off an allergic reaction. You are lucky to be able to find the "culprit" so easily and have the problem solved but many a times, it takes a long long time and many trials and error before you could eventually determine the source of the problem.

Flea allergiy is also another common complaint and in sensitive dogs, the skin irritation can be really bad. This however can be prevented by following a "de-fleaing" regime.

Another main cause of skin problem in dogs and cats, one that is often missed, is hyperthyroidism. Dogs and cats with hyperthyroidism are often presented with oily or greasy hair and tend to have a foul smell. They itch extensively and bald batches may appear eventually especially near the tail end.

It's good to have your dog or cat checked by a vet to rule out hyperthyroidism first before you proceed to treat the skin problem

We figured out our dog had allergies to pollen after taking him to the vet, due to almost constant scratching for two days prior.
Luckily, (or unluckily, from her point of view) the vet's wife has allergies to pollen - and those two days, he notes, were particularly bad for her.
It was great to get a diagnosis, although, what we can do for outside, pollen allergies that are beyond our control is limited.
I've been looking into supplements to benefit his skin and protect it against irritation.
Thanks for your blog - keep up the good work!

ToBeMe said...

HI, Searching for relief from my beautiful red dobie boys allergies I came upon your blog and hope I can apply some of the suggestions here to his condition to offer him some relief. He has been tested and is pretty much allergic to everything under the sun it seems, soy bean, pork, turkey, lamb, milk, chicken, beef, rice, plantae, weeds,trees sycamore red cedar, grasses, molds, dust mites, human dander. he has chronic ear substance buildup, irritation and redness on his paws, behind the ear skin area entire underbelly area. We have changed food, tried prescribed drugs and shampoos as well as topical treatments. Nothing has given enough relief, so frustrated wit not knowing how to ease his discomfort and scratching which of course only causes more discomfort for my poor boy. Looking for a whole new game plan to knock this out for him to be happy again, any suggestions out there will be greatly appreciated.
Take Care

Stacey said...

Hi ToBeMe,

Firstly, please let me apologize for not responding to your post sooner. I somehow overlooked it and apologize for that. I know what it is like to have a dog that suffers from terrible allergies and I just felt horrible that I couldn't do anything to help relieve her discomfort.

Okay, hopefully you have read some of my other replies, cleansing your dogs system and rebuilding it to a healthier state is a must!

Try meats like rabbit, ostrich and fish and vegetable protein sources. The key here is to try new protein sources and rotate them so your baby will not become allergic again.

Right now I have my dogs on a vegetarian diet dog food to help clean their systems out. Try lots of fresh vegetables and fruits.

Look into the BARF diet for your pet or cook their meals yourself. It is very easy to make a yummy stew with lots of veggies in a crockpot for them!

Remember with herbs and homeopathic remedies you need to have patience and endurance.

Please let me know how your baby is doing.

All the best,

You are right. We can all learn a lot from our animals. Patience is one of the common virtues that might rub off.

Dog Health said...

A dog's skin allergies can be difficult to diagnose and treat.Allergies in dogs present as uncontrollable itching, forcing the dog to lick and scratch himself until sores develop on his body.One of the most effective ways to manage dog’s allergy symptoms is to give him regular baths with cool water.

I was passing through different blogs and thought id just say hello. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon,Pa.

Dog Health said...

Dog allergies can happen just like in their human companions,It is in an unpleasant reaction caused by exposure to a food, inhalant, or something in the dog’s environment.

Anonymous said...

I can relate to the story above as well. I've learned that a lot of the pet foods on the market are not healthy for your dogs or cats. Even some of the "better brands" may not be very healthy. The main thing is to stay away from pet food that has corn or wheat in them. Most dogs are allergic to these. I highly recommend an alternative medicine vet if you have one in your area. Saved me a lot of time and money!! Also, have learned that making food from scratch is much healthier in the long run because there are too many additives in many foods. I like ground turkey, ground pork or chicken pulled off the bone with a mixture of brown rice or low fat cottage cheese. There are a lot of whole food dog recipes to play with online. To pinpoint your dogs allergy, I recommend this book: Pet Allergies by Alfred J. Plechner, Martin Zucker

This helped my dog immensely! Good luck!

Stacey said...


Thanks for visiting petwithallergies.blogspot.com! You are correct the most widely used pet food brands are the perfect recipe for getting our beloved animals sick. They are loaded with junk and chemicals. By incorporating home remedies or natural remedies and either a BARF or Raw food diet or a healthy home cooked diet you are adding years of health to your pet's life.

Please come back and visit again!
