I have a dog who has been suffering from terrible skin irritations for the last couple years. The vet doesn’t have any real answers for us, but thinks the red, itchy, flaky skin is the result of stress and anxiety.
I’ve tried a bunch of different prescription medications for my dog, but none of them work for an extended period of time. Plus, they’re very expensive and I simply can’t afford to spend $80 per month indefinitely. So I finally decided to try Tea Tree Spray from a company called Gold Medal Pets.
Tea tree oil comes from a tree that is indigenous to Australia and that has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. Some of the specific applications of tea tree oil include relieving itchy, dry, scaly skin, so this sounded like something my dog could benefit from.
I bought an 8 fl oz. bottle for about $6.00 at my local pet store and have been spritzing my girl twice a day for the last month or so. I’m happy to report that the Tea Tree Spray seems to be working! It hasn’t “cured” the skin problem, meaning that there are still red, irritated patches on my dog’s sides, neck, and paws, but the amount of scratching has decreased drastically! I feel so much better knowing that I’ve been able to provide my dog with some relief at last!
If your dog has stubborn skin problems, I recommend giving Gold Medal Pets’ Tea Tree Spray a try. It worked for my dog!
