What is Itchy Owie Quick-Dry Gel?
This is a product you'll want to have in your dog's first aid kit. It is designed for any kind of lesion, hot spot, cut, bite, sting or wound.
Dogs can't help it. When something is wrong with their skin, they scratch and/or lick (or bite) the area, sometimes causing further damage or infection.
Itchy Owie Quick-Dry Gel is designed to:
- Keep out the bacteria that could cause infection
- Decrease the itch sensation
- Help support the skin's natural integrity to heal
The herbs used to make this gel are double extracted for maximum potency, giving it a characteristic light brown color. You can see the potency of the active herbal ingredients, rather than the "fillers" or "carriers".
Our veterinarians developed this skin gel for dogs with:
- frequent itchy areas (regardless of the cause)
- hot spots
- wet (oozing) OR dry skin areas
- insect bites and stings
- cuts and wounds (first aid)
Whatever the skin issue is, frequent application will be beneficial and will be safe if the dog licks it off.
What is Itchy Owie Used For?
Some canines are more susceptible to hot spots, lesions and skin trouble. The skin can get dry or it can have moist, irritated patches. Insect bites and stings can also affect some dogs more than others. These all cause unpleasant, even unbearable, itch and/or discomfort. There may be sensitivities to something in the diet or environment that can cause reactions on the skin of your dog.
A note from our veterinarian...
Skin problems that persist are generally considered to happen for many possible reasons:
Is your pet exposed to toxic materials?
Common pest control chemicals in the garden, on the lawn or cleaning products in the home may be causing or contributing to a skin problem. Consider substituting more natural products to see if your dog's skin health improves.
Allergic dermatitis is a condition seen routinely by veterinarians. Possible allergens can be pollens from weeds, trees or grasses, molds, dust mites or fleas. You may want to learn more about another Pet Wellbeing product if your cat is itching due to allergies: Itch Support Gold.
Are there other health issues?
Other health conditions, such as an underactive thyroid, can have symptoms that show up on the skin. By treating the cause, the secondary skin ailments can be taken care of. Sometimes, negative reactions to vaccines can exhibit as skin disorders. A foul odor on the skin is not considered normal and should be examined by a veterinarian. A common cause of smelly skin is yeast infection.
What is your feline eating?
The most common dietary allergens are wheat, dairy, corn, soy and egg. Sometimes, though fairly rare, our pets exhibit an allergy or sensitivity to something in their diet by breaking out on the skin, often on the back at the base of the tail. The skin is one of the body's organs of elimination. If the body is attempting to eliminate an allergen, the skin can become irritated, red and itchy. Assess the quality of the food you are feeding your pet and also potential ingredients that may be a problem. If you suspect your pet has food sensitivities but you can't figure out what they are, it may be helpful to prepare an allergen-free diet at home. Batches of food can be made in advance and kept in the fridge or freezer.
Is your cat bored, frustrated or irritable?
Sometimes, psychologically-based issues can cause a pet to scratch. Over scratching can lead to abrasions that can become infected.
Fleas, mange and ringworm require treatment specific to the type of parasite your pet has. Seek the consultation of your veterinarian for solutions.

Itchy Owie Quick-Dry Gel is Formulated With:
- Extracts of Calendula flower (Calendula officinalis): The beautiful orange petals of the Calendula flower are known for their ability to support the skin's natural resistance and ability to rejuvenate. Calendula is one of the most appropriate herbs for applying to wounds on the skin and for many types of skin discomfort.
- Plantain leaf (Plantago major): This common garden weed is of enormous value for the skin, particularly for the swelling and discomfort normally experienced from bites and stings.
- Marshamallow root (Althea officinale): The soothing, demulcent quality of Marshmallow has been shown to help general symptoms on the skin caused by a sensitivity, such as hot spots.
- White Oak bark (Quercus alba): Oak bark has the quality of astringing tissue both internally (in the digestive tract) and externally on the skin's surface. It contains tannins that can help with normal response to inflammation.
- Oregon Grape root bark (Berberis aquifolium): has been used to help with normal immune defences against microbes and prevention of infection.
- Yarrow leaf & flower (Achillea millefolium): While Yarrow is an herb commonly used internally, it also has many uses for the skin including wounds on the skin or paws' surfaces, swelling, bruising and burns.
- Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra): Applied externally, Licorice has an amazing capacity to help with normal resistance to inflammation and relieve the discomfort associated with swelling.
- Aloe Vera juice (Aloe barbadensis): Aloe supports the body to regenerate healthy, new skin cells. It is commonly used for burns, wounds, cuts and scrapes.
- Vitamin E Oil (dl-alpha tocopherol acetate) 10%: Vitamin E is a fundamental component of providing the skin with nourishment. It helps to support the skin's ability to stay healthy and elastic after abrasions or excessive scratching.
- Evening Primrose Oil: While most of us may be familiar with Evening Primrose Oil for its essential fatty acid content, it is also a valuable ingredient for use externally on the skin.
Herbs are certified organic, ethically wild-harvested
