Home Remedies for Dog Allergies | DIY Natural Dog Wipes

Have you ever thought about all of the pollens and dirt that your dog is exposed to on their daily potty breaks?

Even worse, think about all the chemical lawn service residue your dog is walking on.

Even if you don't take your dog for walks or to the park, many cities fog neighborhoods to rid them of mosquitoes.

Does your dog lick his feet? If so, they are licking all the chemicals and allergens and absorbing them into their bodies. The world can be a very toxic place.

For dogs with seasonal skin allergies, especially when a dog is allergic to grass, being outdoors can be a source of misery. In the fall, dogs that are allergic to leaves may be constantly scratching. 

But, there's hope for your dog to still enjoy the great outdoors. As a proactive dog parent, you can help reduce your dog's seasonal allergies and toxin build-up with a little help from 4-Legger.

Regular Dog Baths

By bathing your dog regularly during allergy season, you will be able to thoroughly clean your pooch and at the same time soothe their itchy skin. Because 4-Legger shampoo is free of artificial or synthetic ingredients, you can bathe your dog as often as needed.

Using 4-Legger, you can sleep soundly knowing your dog's natural coat oils won't be stripped. And baths can relieve your dog's dry and itchy skin!

Wipe Your Dog Down

When returning from an outside walk or adventure, wipe down your dog's feet, legs, belly, and anything else that is exposed to grass or pollens. By regularly wiping your dog down with a natural dog wipe, you will be removing any pollens, grass, or chemicals that they may have been exposed to.

Have you ever looked at the ingredient panel on pet or baby wipes?

Ehylhexylglycerin, benzyl chloride, parabens, and polysorbate 20, just to name a few common, yet not healthy ingredients you may find in a pet wipe.

Those are some pretty scary ingredients. But no need to fear!

4-Legger has an easy natural solution - 4-Legger DIY Natural Dog Wipes!

This is a great idea. I am staying in a 5th wheel and a boarding stable and the mud/muck on the dogs feet after each walk was terrible. I tried this and it worked great. They also aren’t licking their feet nearly as much now. Plus i could clean up the belly dirt easily.
