Lastly, Aardora’s Active Earth Elements™ draw toxins and allergens away from your dog's skin while providing essential mineral nutrients. Guaranteed results with no reported side effects.
Dog Acne, Causes & Symptoms:
Although acne is mostly thought of as a human skin condition, dogs are also afflicted with a similar problem, called "canine acne," "chin acne" or "puppy acne". Canine acne starts as small, oily black plugs in the chin, and may develop into red, itchy inflamed bumps. While mild dog acne is not always visible along furry areas, severe canine acne can cause swelling and redness in the entire affected area.
Similar to human acne, there are many causes. Dog acne can result from an overproduction of sebum, which is normally used to moisten your dog's skin and waterproof their coat. Some dogs develop acne as a reaction to food, environmental changes, allergies or stress.
Trying to Prevent Canine Acne...
Many health professionals believe that plastic food dishes are a culprit for chin acne. Small scratches in a plastic dish can hold bacteria or dirt that gets transferred to your dog's face when he/she eats. Generally, it is better to use glass or metal food bowls and wash them daily to prevent a buildup of any irritants in the base of the dish.
Stress-related acne can be managed by finding the causes of the stress and eliminating it, if possible. Perhaps you have moved to a new apartment, introduced a new animal to the household or one of your dog's friends has passed on. Try to calm your dog by paying extra attention to them and surrounding them with familiar household items such as a particular toy, bed or blanket. Perhaps you can buy the dog a new plush friend to discourage it from getting lonely.
Although there is no fail-safe way to prevent your pet from developing acne, you can discourage future skin irregularities by grooming your dog regularly, and cleaning him or her with an antibacterial wash. Also, try to provide your dog with balanced nutritious meals. Without proper nourishment, a pet's entire body, not just its skin and coat, will be continuously in a state of stress. Many types of dermatological problems can be avoided if your dog is consuming an optimum diet. If you are feeding your dog inexpensive commercial dog food, try upgrading to a meat-filled organic product
Treating Dog Acne:
Use a fast-acting and soothing topical cream to relieve the inflammation and redness. A topical (surface) skin protectant, such as Aardora, will also guard the skin against bacteria and keep the affected area clean.
