Pets can suffer from the same skin problems that we humans do. From irritations and allergies caused by foods to more serious issues like eczema and dermatitis. Dr Zoo’s Irritable Skin Cream is a moisturiser designed to help soothe irritated, itchy skin using edible oils and other soothing ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Colloidal Oatmeal, which is a well-known calming ingredient for pet’s skin. This moisturiser is ideal for applying to pet's itchy areas. We also use natural, concentrated extracts such as Centella Asiatica, for further calming. For the past four years, our customers have known first-hand the benefits of our cream and thanks to their word-of-mouth recommendations, we have been helping more and more pets.
Apply moisturiser to affected areas as often as required. Not an easy task but try to distract your pet to let the cream penetrate as long as possible. If symptoms persist consult your vet. As with all-natural products, patch test first to check for allergies.
What can you do if you have an itchy pet?
First, try to identify where your pet is itching most and see if you can identify the why or if there's is something triggering the itch. Then, talk to your vet. If you are a pet parent with an itchy pet looking for natural alternatives or if you are currently using anti-inflammatory or steroid creams and you want to try something natural, we recommend our Ditch the Itch Pack.
Is this a dog moisturiser?
Yes, this is a moisturiser designed to help soothe irritated, itchy skin. If you're looking for an all-round dog moisturiser, we recommend you use our Crusty Nose Itchy Toes Balm.
You say your products are safe for dogs & puppies to lick, but Aloe Vera is unsafe for dogs & puppies to ingest?
The main part of Aloe Vera to avoid for dogs is Saponin, which is contained mainly in the leaf. In skincare, a concentrated powder of Aloe Vera is always used. Aloe is mostly water so pure leaf gel isn’t concentred enough to do anything in a skincare product, and the preservation of the raw gel is very difficult. Therefore, our understanding is that ingestion of the whole, fresh, Aloe Vera leaf, including the skin, is what pets need to avoid.
