We are in the Tropics.
In my world it is summer, and our dogs are continuously scratching, licking and driving
themselves crazy, which in turn does the same to the humans around them!
In your world it may be cows, horses, cats?
“Stop scratching!! “
The poor things must be going mad. Makes me itchy just thinking about it.
What could be the cause?
- Qld itch (heat)
- Food intolerance
- Various weeds and plants
- Mites and bacteria
- Rain & muddy conditions
If you are unsure what is causing you pet’s or livestock’s skin condition, a trip to the vet is advisable to see if they can find out for you.
I know people who have done this, including myself, and tried many different “cures, remedies and drugs” but the condition continues or returns.
Some of these methods can include:
- Prescribed expensive cortisone tablets.
- Antihistamine courses
- Preservative free diet
- Removal of plants, grasses in the garden
- Regular baths in an array of anti itch shampoos
- Creams, lotions and potions
- Swim in the sea (watch those stingers)
You are in the tropics, it’s probably summer and it is part of life at this time of the year.
Ruling out fleas first is a must. They can be very small and hide only to return over and over with their life cycle. No fleas? …….
We have found a fantastic ointment that is helping!
Talented local, Suzie, from Deep Gully Goats Milk Soap right here at Mt. Martin, near Kuttabul, has found the answer. Thanks Suzie, another awesome local producing great results from hard work.
Try to stop them scratching long enough to sink in, especially the first time. As with all skin applications, test a patch first before applying in larger amounts.
They love the smell of the balm as well as the lavish attention.
Our dogs do anyway!!

Shannon Drew & “Toya” Ridge-back x Mastiff
“I thought it was another one of mum’s hippy potions because she said it worked in three days. I’ve tried everything, including tablets from the vet and the beach and nothing worked.
Now I feel bad because it works. Her skin isn’t red anymore and she isn’t scratching at all, considering she used to scratch non stop… it was so annoying. Now we are trying it on my other dogs feet.” watch this space…
Maree Frawley & “Rex” Pomeranian X
“This product is my last sanity, my last resort.”
Rex is only 3 and has next to no teeth due to gnawing himself stupid. We call him the scritchy dog. I’ve tried Advantage, Front-line, Comfortis, lavender oil, tea tree oil, pastes of bicarb and borax, oatmeal shampoo, citronella and aloe vera. It is it isn’t fleas!
“…..I must say I would totally recommend this product!“
Today is day 4, I have been rubbing the balm onto his tummy and lower back every day
and it’s working! His skin doesn’t look so raw or dry and he is actually sleeping rather than constantly scratching. The relief he must feel would be tremendous. I was a bit apprehensive to begin with as I thought the balm would leave him greasy, but it soaks right in. As a bonus it smells fantastic.
Thank you so much for recommending this product.
