Natural Hot Spot Remedies

22nd November, 2016

As a pet owner, you always want to see your dog or cat happy. Sadly, sometimes they can get sick and lose some of that energy and spirit. Hot spots can be a reason for some sadness – the itchiness and scratching are just awful! Because these are quite common, you should be on the lookout for signs that your dog or cat has hot spots.

So if you do realize your pet has hot spots, how to get rid of the pain and discomfort? Of course there are plenty of medicines out there, but there are also many natural remedies that you can try in the comfort of your home.

Here are some natural options that can help take care of feline or canine hot spots.


“I like nature! So much so that I haven’t eaten the butterfly… but it’s tempting!”

1. EcoSpot

Made with all-natural ingredients, EcoSpot is a great targeted solution. It combines ingredients like Marigold, organic Burdrock root and Mullein leaf extracts, among others to make a powerful product that works for both dogs and cats. EcoSpot is specially designed to work on hot spots, so there is a science behind combining the different ingredients, making it more effective than any one extract alone.

Plus, it’s simple to use and very effective. Just spray the solution on your pet’s hot spot and it will reduce itchiness and disinfect, while also helping the raw skin heal.


Because EcoSpot is a spray, it’s very easy and painless to apply.

2. Calendula (marigold)

If skin irritation is what’s causing your dog’s or cat’s hot spots, Calendula is an excellent home treatment that can help your pet. You can purchase it in a variety of forms: lotion, oil, tea, cream, salve and tinctures.

Calendula is particularly handy in helping soothe itchiness, which in turn helps to keep your pet from making the lesion worse. You can easily purchase it at your health store and all you’ll have to do is generously apply it on the affected area. It’s very safe for the pet,  even if they lick it.


Hot spots can cause a lot of itchiness and discomfort. Calendula is helpful in reducing the itchy sensation.

3. St. John’s Wort (Hypericum)

Combine St. John’s Wort with Calendula to help reduce pain and inflammation. You can mix Hypericum and Calendula tincture, dilute it with water and voila, you have a powerful antibacterial wash. This mixture is called HyperCal and is very relieving when it comes to hot spots.

To make the mix, you will need to have about 12 to 15 drops of Hypericum and Calendula tinctures to one cup of warm water. You can use this as often as needed to keep the area clean and also help to reduce itching. Always remember to dry the area using a clean cloth once you’re done cleaning.


“I need some antibacterial help!”

4. Coconut Oil

Probably the easiest to find in your local store, coconut oil has a great deal of anti-fungal properties and can be useful when used topically or internally.

Coconut oil is a great home treatment especially when your dog has a tendency to suffer from yeast infections. All you have to do is add a little coconut oil to the pet’s diet. But don’t forget to alternate! For instance, you can feed the dog Coconut oil one day and then Omega-3 oils the next day. Alternatively, you could also give your dog or cat a teaspoon of coconut oil per 10 pounds of weight.


Coconut oil is a great remedy for many things and can help fight off hot spots when included in your pet’s diet.

Hot spots can they get painful and make your pet’s life really unbearable. It is important to take steps to address the situation as soon as you notice it. Home remedies and natural based products are a great first line of defense for fast relief from pain and itchiness.

I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
