All Therapeutic Cleansers - for washing.
INFECTIONS: Is your dog struggling with bacterial skin issues, scratches, or just had surgery? If so, wash them with Warrior or 3Kings Cleansers or use the Warrior Spritzer or Warrior Level 3 in the areas of concern.
ITCHY, FLAKY, OR FUNGAL SKIN ISSUES: Wash with Wildwood Cleansers. After washing, rub Wildwood LEVEL 4 Moisturizer directly onto and around the itchy, flaky, or dry skin issue. Let it sit for at least 1 minute and then rinse with warm water.
|Unscented Level 3, 4, & 5 - for moisturizing. If your dog licks everything but needs a moisturizer for their dry or cracked skin, this might be best. They are made simply of food-grade ingredients and contain no essential oils. If your dog's skin is cracking from a fungal issue, use Level 3 or Level 4 in Warrior or Wildwood, instead of Unscented.|
|Harmony - soothes skin irritations and redness. However, if your fluffy friend has sunburn, use the Warrior Spritzer instead.|
|All Unscented Cleansers and Baby Cleansers can be used for washing. These are best for daily use when your dog doesn't have any skin issues. Otherwise, choose a therapeutic cleanser to help reduce skin problems.|
|Paradigm Massage fights bacteria and viruses that cause colds and flu. If your fluffy friend isn't feeling good, apply this to their back, behind the neck, and rub in well. Or apply it to their belly in an area they can not reach. Use 1 squirt for every 10 pounds. For example, a 50lb dog would get 5 squirts. (no licking)|
|All Level 3 Therapeutic Moisturizers - for moisturizing. These LEVEL 3's are very light and will help moisturizer the skin without making it too oily. Use as needed. (no licking)|
PAIN and SWELLING: Riverflow Spritzer can be used on painful joints and muscles or to reduce swelling and inflammation. Shake the Spritzer and spray directly onto their skin. Use around the area of pain and swelling, but not inside an open wound. (no licking)
GoAway Use only when needed and always apply an Alywillow moisturizer (or oil) to the site immediately following using GoAway to prevent a burn. Do not use GoAway in large amounts or on a wet or moist animal. (no licking)
TICKS and Strange Bumps: GoAway can be applied directly to a tick to help it release. GoAway can also be applied to strange bumps and infections (not open wounds). Always apply Alywillow Unscented Level 4 Moisturizer (or a carrier oil) to the site immediately following using GoAway to prevent a burn. Do not use GoAway on a wet or moist animal as it can cause a chemical burn. (no licking)
|Lip balms - we aren't sure why you would need lip balm for your dog, but Alywillow lip balm is safe for use on their skin and lips.|
REPEL FLIES AND GNATS
Spray Wildwood Spritzer into their fur (no licking). Native Shield, Fortify, and GoAway can be applied to a bandana or t-shirt and wrapped around them. These are not strong enough to repel fleas or ticks on dogs.
