The best control comes from feeding animals a diet that does not contain synthetic toxic preservatives. The best commercial dog and cat food is Muenster Natural. The Miissing Link supplement will also help.
Comfrey tea can be use topically for dog skin allergies - cook a mess of comfrey greens, dilute the cool pot liquor down to a light iced tea color and pour the into the dogís fur. Comfrey is very powerful so donít use more than once a month and only when needed.
Bathing the dogs in herbal shampoos that contain citrus (d-limonene) and tea tree (melaleuca) will also help. Cornmeal dusted onto problem skin areas is also helpful, especially if the skin problems are fungal. See cornmeal for additional information.
