Turpentine for Dogs N Puppies
Only use pure pine gum spirits of turpentine. Turpentine bought from an art supply store *may* be this kind, used for cleaning brushes and thinning oil-based paints. Read the fine print. When in doubt, don't use that source.
We used it with our adult Ridgeback, simply adding it to her food and she never did mind, though sometimes she'd put in a good nap afterwards, one drop for every ten pounds body weight. We have a puppy who's having itchy problems right now, he's about 30 pounds. We are putting three drops externally on him (no red/raw/broken skin--that would be painful). It seems to be helping, we are also working with his food, changing his kibble up to a single source protein and adding a little fish oil--not too much or your puppy will have soft stool. We are working from the hypothesis that the shots he has received has weakened his immune system, allowing whatever--fleas, food, etc--to be an irritant.
The puppy is a work in progress.
