The “QLD itch” – SOLUTION ! | pet minding gold coast

Time to talk about the dreaded “QLD itch”, our payback for living in paradise! Simple, take all the wheat out of your pets diet and feed less protein (eg. lamb instead of chicken or beef). Use a good oatmeal wash and iodine on any bad spots to take the itch out of it, you will see results within a week. If symptons persist of course seek advice of your veterinarian

….another little trick, and a cost saving one. Buy oats (just your regular ones from the supermarket), put them in some pantyhose or a stocking and soak them in a bucket of water, when the water turns milky, use it (in a spray bottle is easy) for a great soothing wash for your itchy dog. if you are really keen, use the pre-soaked oats and massage them into any itchy spots. gotta love the nana remedies…
