Listerine Itch Spray for Dogs

Does your dog itch and make their skin so raw? Well, our little Stubby was and it was just horrible until we mixed the following:

  • 1/3 water
  • 1/3 baby oil (to soften the skin)
  • 1/3 Listerine (the regular brown type)

Put this into a spray bottle and spray (of course away from the eyes). In a couple of days, you should see a lot of difference. For Stubby, this has made a big difference. Hope this helps your little ones.

Please get to the cause of the itch. Flea allergy? Fungus? mites? Food? Immune system?. All can be fixed rather easily. Read my past posts as this can be rather lengthy. Immune system needs built up not destroyed by vaccines,wrong food and allergens. No vaccines. They destroy the immune system. Check for ingredients like formaldehyde, mercury, antifreeze and other dangers.

Food. Need part raw. Nzyme granules are good as well Please Google Helps immune system, fungus, allergy and general health. NO--repeat no corn, wheat or soy. Stay out of the grocery store pet food aisle. You will find almost all grocery store pet food to be loaded with allergens and immune busters. Easy to cook and also provide part raw. For instance, try boiling a sweet potato. Dogs love them and they are really good nutrition. Varied cooking of brown rice, lentils, meats, veggies (raw is better but some need cooked) kale, carrots, add a little flax oil, coconut oil, omegas, this ends up being less expensive than regular grocery store food.


Kibble if needed, great is EVO but decent can be Diamond lamb and rice at your co op, groomers, pet food store, farm supply. The first ingredient is meat, not corn. Reasonable price and decent food.

Small fungus can be helped with athletes foot spray. Coconut oil is good (in and out) but fungus must be treated as it only grows if you don't do what is needed.
Fleas. NO flea shampoo, it is poison. Dove dish soap or bar soap does fine. 2 soapings and a good rinse. House must be Boraxed with 2 to 2 and a half cups dry Borax for average sized carpeted room. Fleas best breeding grounds are carpets, area rugs, furniture, dog beds. Leave Borax down for 2 weeks before you vacuum. Reason? eggs, larvae and adult cycle.

Yard fleas? Natural remedy cedercide granules. Inexpensive and effective. Use common sense when you care for your dog. Family member needs good things from Mom and Dad. Returns a love big as can be. Special souls.

Listerine, as in Listerine mouth wash? Our dog scratches, but we have found a few fleas so we put a "supposed" flea collar on her which is useless.


Will this "formula" help with fleas

Disappointed in result. Only works for very short time while creating grease spots on sheets, etc.


Hydrocortisone cream works so much better because the itching stops and lasts much longer.
