Smile Calendula oil for skin trubles

Hi Everyone. I just want to share with you how Calendula oil can be a great help in all skin problems for our Dogies.
Calendula oil is a great and save help for skin irritation, any bloody wound or cuts, bruises.
I read somewhere here about dry skin irritation after muzzle, unfortunately I could not find this article again to answer. What you need is Calendula oil. Cortisol is not a help at all, actually it makes the skin even worst. Try Calendula oil. It is antibacterial. If there is an open wound it helps to stop the blood. It cleans the wound, kill bacteria if there is any and heal the wound. Also, it take the pain away. Believe you or not, try. It is safe, 150%. Even if the dog leak it, they like it. Not to worry. It is SAFE.
Where to find. Health food store. I am talking about Calendula oil from Weleda (it is the company name that produce it), and ONLY, because it is pure. And Please, DO NOT substitute for any synthetic.
When my dog had surgery for cropping his ears, after steatches were taken off, I put Calendula oil couple of times and it healed completely with no time.Anything, according to skin problems, Calendula oil is ALWAYS handy. So try yourself and you will see. By the way, the same way you can use it on people, babies including. The best of Lavender

Thanks for the info, Lavendar. I do recommend a vet evaluate any skin issues. I'm a fan of holistic treatment(s) but also know it's better to be safe than sorry especially when it comes to my 4 legged family members

i like to make my own calendula oil.

i grow my own, hand pick and dry the petals, then loosely fill up a quart jar with the chopped up dried calendula petals, pour in enough extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil to cover the petals, you may need to add more oil as the petals will absorb some, and then put a lid on jar and set in a sunny window for about 4 weeks, once every other day lightly shake the jar to mix.
I have a press to exract most of the oil when ready, but just straining the oil out will do.
Then store in a cool,dry, dark place.

I make a lot at one time as i use it in salves, but most people could just make a much smaller amount at one time.

Calendula is very easy to grow and quite a pretty blossom too!

What the hell, the new poster on this forum posts some useful information and instead of welcoming her into the community, you say some less then inviting comment? wdf?

P.S i dont see her advertising any product? Calendula oil is available from a bunch of different companies, If someone tells you to use tape to hold your dobbies cropped ears, what are they advertised 3M tape?? LOL

P.S.S I used calendula oil when my dogs ears were cropped and they healed wonderfully, perfect ears. for telling this to the public

Meh plenty of forum get spam bots I don't think there's anything wrong with being skeptical when the first post is about recommending a product.

I definitely did not mean to advertise any particular company(unfortunately it looks like it) Why I underline Weleda because it is pure Calendula oil and thats what I use for any of my dogs skin troubles and have amazing results. Probably some other companies produce Calendula oil as well, we have just look for ingredients that is listed on the bottle and make sure that is pure.

Hi just checking all this out and was reading about this oil. What I wanted to say first, is, has anyone experienced "wobblers syndrome" ? I am new here, but I have. My girl has it and has just had surgery. However, I have a schnauzer too that has skin issues. Does anyone know how to help with that itch? I thought I was on it when I used shampoo with teetree oil. Please forgive me if I am doing something wrong as I haven't figured out how to work through this site.

AS a owner of a female dobie with skin issues IMO I would seek the advice of a Vet Dermatologist. There are so many underlying issues with the skin and you can be in a long haul with this problem. So seek out a professional and get help asap.

Skin Problem

My boy is 15 months and has had dry flaky skin for 4 months now paws are red and he likes the pads off. The vet had him on two kinds of anti biotics for 5 weeks plus no snacks, wash his paws every time he went out brush him every day bath twice a week. He still has bad skin, I am about to go to raw diet.

Another question , I boarded him for a week and when I got back found they were spraying his feet with Cutter lemon eucalyptus insect repellent to stop him from licking his feet which are inflamed. Can this stuff hurt him? it says if swallowed call poison control on the bottle.http://www.dobermantalk.com/images/smilies/thanx.gif

skin issues

Hi, well I know Im new and whatever I say you all all ready know, lol but that last post from tuchy, just a comment.. I too am having issues but with my schnauzer not my dobe.. however, I changed food on my dobe because of the pet food deaths.. and her coat changed and was flakey just not looking so good. I changed back to what I had been using, and they have posts at the store that it is not coming from the other plant.. I use Diamond lamb and rice.. the vet seems to think its doing good at least for her. I was told that dobes that are bored will lick their feet and possibly other areas not sure if that is true mine sucks on a fleecy toy and has since a pup.. the schnauzer though now that I don't know what to do.. she itches and cries she is on CD dog food and I really think she is allergic to the food. I thought I found some help when I started to bathe her with shampoo with teetree oil in it.. but she still itches some.. I really believe that diet plays a big part in skin and coat but geez you can get lost in knowing what is good for your dog. I know I was prob NOT any help and I am sorry, I feel for you though, I hate seeing my girl itch and cry because of itchy skin very frustrating.

jasmine and her wobblers

I got home today, and Jasmine is doing so good. I took her to the vet today and they took out her stitches and was amazed at how much better she is walking.. she slipps some on slick floors but not falling down and when she gets up geeesh, she isnt rocking herself up. I see her getting stronger all the time. She seems to have that sparkle back in her face and Im so glad.. she goes back to Columbia for a recheck end of mo or so . I need to find a different way of a harness however, I have no control with her head. I can't use a collar anymore so not sure what kind of harness is out there that let's you direct their heads.. but im so pleased and she is about off meds pheww prednizone makes peepee lol but she is such a good girl, she holds it til we can get her outside..
