How to Apply

Make sure the skin is clean and dry before applying (use a mild soap and water to clean, and gently pat to dry). Apply the gel 2 to 3 times per day to the affected skin area.

Remember, a little bit goes a long way. A teardrop-sized amount will cover an area of about the size of the back of the hand once massaged in. All you need is a thin layer for the gel to work.

Keep your pup distracted for a few minutes so that the gel has a chance to absorb. Once they notice the lack of irritation, they tend to leave it alone. If they lick it off, you'll want to reapply it.

Because Lavengel® has a strong lavender scent when it is first applied, be cautious when using it on or near your dog’s nose. The scent will dissipate quickly.

If Lavengel® is submerged in water for some time, it will dissolve, so you will need to reapply it after the skin has dried.

    Healed a hotspot and a paw wound

    Ordered this to try to keep from taking my dogs to the vet again. Within 3 days it healed my older dog's wound on her toe and my younger dog's hot spot. 10/10 will buy again and would recommend.

    Better than her oral hot spot meds

    Everyone needs this remarkable product in their home. I first used Lavengel as an anti-itch ointment for my dog’s hot spots - much more effective than her oral meds from the vet. I will never be without it while traveling!

    No more hotspot and less itching

    A great product. Soothed hot spots and seemed to reduce itching. So much better than all the other products I’ve tried. My labrador has chronic pyoderma and this has been what has helped.

Vet Tested, Vet Approved

Several years ago, Dr. Karen Stone, DVM, became the first veterinarian to try Lavengel® on canines, and she hasn’t looked back since. Hear her story for yourself:

"Compared to an OTC product or a lot of other veterinary products, I like it because it works quickly, effectively - and the most important part is, it’s completely non-toxic.

Dogs don't lie. It either works or it doesn't, and this does.”

What Causes Hotspots on Dogs?

A hotspot (or acute moist dermatitis) is a raw, red, and inflamed patch of skin caused by a dog’s repetitive scratching, rubbing, and chewing at itchy skin.

Hotspots are commonly found on the head, neck, hips, paws, and tail. The initial irritation can come from fleas, moisture, allergies, or rubbing by a collar or harness.

Hotspots can occur to any dog, but breeds such as bulldogs, golden retrievers, German Shepherds, labradors, and huskies are more prone to them.

  • Number 1 in a lavender circle

    Gently Clean + Dry

    Carefully clean the area with a mild soap and pat dry with a soft towel. You may need to trim excess fur in or around the area.

  • Number 2 in a lavender circle

    Apply Lavengel

    Lightly massage the ointment onto the area 2-3 times daily. Because it’s concentrated, A Dot on the Spot® is all you need.

  • Number 3 in a lavender circle

    Distract Your Pup

    Use a treat or toy to keep your dog from licking the gel so it can absorb and begin to relieve the itch and discomfort.

What breed is your dog?: Siberian Husky
What skin problems did Lavengel help with? You can list more than one.: itchy sores, seasonal allergy rash

I was desperate to find a ointment to help treat/manage my Siberian Huskies itchy sores he develops from seasonal allergies. I really didn't want to go back to steroids from the vet. I saw this stuff on Amazon when I searched for antimicrobial cream for dogs.

This is the only product I could find that contained no crazy chemicals or additives. It is just simple Lavender, vitamins, and zinc. Also the only ointment I could find without scary reviews about dogs getting worse due to adverse reactions.
So those two reasons along. Drove me to purchase a tube and see how it would work on my sweet boy.

It took about 5 days of applying the ointment 3 times a day. But his chin (where he was really broken out) is now nearly completely healed. He no longer rubs his chin or face.

Oh and the best part. The ointment really seems to sooth on contact. I can literally feel him relax into it when I apply it to his chin. Which is a big deal. So many other dog skin products contact strong almost burning menthol additives to their product. And that stuff drives my dog. He will try to rub off overly strong/irritating medicine.

But after I apply Lavengel. He simply relaxes and leaves his medicated area alone.

I plan to ALWAYS keep Lavengel in my medicine cabinet for my dogs. To help us get through itchy allergy season. And just in case anyone ends up with a wound that needs treating.
