Pyoderma in Dogs

Here we offer a natural homeopathic formula that works on giving a non-drug solution from stress, which feline acne is commonly known to be a stress-related condition.
Feline Acne - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment
Feline acne is a common skin disorder characterized by the presence of blackheads on the cat's chin and lips. It can affect cats of any age, sex or breed.
Sebaceous glands secrete oils (known as sebum) which lubricate the skin, preventing dryness and irritation. The sebaceous glands are mostly found in dorsal, eyelids, chin, the surface of the base of the tail, lips, scrotum, and prepuce. They are connected to the hair follicles.
These glands also play a role in territorial marking and any observant cat owner will have seen their cat rubbing his face and chin along objects. Over time this rubbing will leave greasy patches.
In acne, the follicles become blocked with a black sebaceous material, resulting in blackheads. These blackheads may become irritated, swollen and infected, leading to pustules.
The exact cause of feline acne isn't known.
There are several possible causes however including

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.

My ten year old Persian kitty, Tiki, had a pronounced long-term case of feline acne, not only on her chin, but also below her nose, with one small spot appearing on her nose. My vet here, in California, said there really wasn't much that could be done about feline acne except to try antiobiotics which I didn't want Tiki to have. So, I went online searching for a homeopathic solution and discovered Hampl prescriptions and their excellent information on all kinds of animal conditions and treatments. It took several months of the easily-administered drops between the shoulder blades to get Tiki to the place where she is now with very few spots of feline acne left. It is an understatement to say how relieved I am and Tiki is too I am sure. Thank you so much Hampl. Lauri
This helps calm my cat down. It stops the irritation that drives him crazy. I am happy with the results thus far, but I have not used thisremedy for a prolonged peroid of time
