If your dog has a tendency towards yeast infections, adding coconut oil can be helpful.
Alternating different types of oils is a good way to include coconut oil in your dog’s diet, feeding coconut oil one day and Omega-3 oils the next, like green lipped muscles or fish treats. You can give your dog 1 teaspoon (5ml) of coconut oil per 10 pounds of bodyweight, or 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds (13.6 kg) of body weight. But ease into it gradually, starting with about a quarter of this amount, then build up slowly.
While hydrogen peroxide treats the symptoms, the root cause may be fixed simply by feeding your dog a raw diet. & staying away from preservative filled dog treats. Food can often lead to allergies that manifest in the form of mild to very severe symptoms on a dog’s skin. This is sometimes the case with cooked commercial, dry or canned food. Affecting the internal and external organs, inappropriate food can trigger a countless number of infections, diseases, and conditions.
There is also the risk that a dry or canned food diet will result in repeated recurrence of hot spots.
A raw diet may serve as a deterrent, preventing hot spots and their return once remedied. The switch from dry and canned food to a raw diet has cured many dogs previously suffering from repeated bouts of hot spots. When one of my own dogs recovered from hot spots using this approach, I was inspired to research the merits of raw diets & thus Drool Pet Co. was created.
