So how does Chamomile Tea work?

Chamomile Tea A Natural Dog Remedy

How do you administer it?
Using chamomile tea to treat your dog is easy. Just chill a cup of tea in the fridge. You can spray it directly onto irritated skin, or add it to their drinking water. Spraying on the coat will help with irritation, while adding it to the water helps sooth the stomach. Whenever I mix anything into the dogs water I always highly dilute the item I am mixing in. In this case Chamomile Tea while safe will make your dog a bit drowsy when ingested and unless that is the intent I would do a half and half mixture or 1/4 Tea with 3/4 water. You can always add more if you see it is helping and your dog is tolerating it well. If your dog doesn’t want to drink it you could try freezing some of the Chamomile Tea water in ice cube trays and let them lick them. However full strength Chamomile Tea poses no health threats or toxicity issues even in very concentrated doses.

How soon will this natural dog remedy work?
The tea will get to work right away, killing nasty bacteria and helping to soothe any irritation. You will notice a difference right away on the skin they will be less itchy and the skin will become less irritated. It might take a bit longer to help calm their stomach down a drop of honey always seems to do the trick if the issue is not severe.

Just like with any other natural dog remedy talk with your vet the use of chamomile tea as a way to help care for your dog. It is a great way to take care of some basic irritations that dogs experience, and to really help them enjoy a more healthy and soothing life!

  1. Great to know. I wonder if this would work on hot spots?

  2. have you tried it on ear irritations?

    • No I haven’t but I don’t think there would be a problem with putting some on a cotton pad and using that to clean their ear. Just make sure you dry it really well so that it does not add to the problem.

  3. Ohh, great idea! I wonder if this will help with Lola’s bacterial stuff on her feet that seems to pop up in the spring (?) – definitely keeping this in mind and trying. Sharing & pinning!

    • Maybe if you mix in some honey while it is still warm before letting it all cool down. The honey would help with the bacteria thing and the Chamomile would help the irritation. You could use a cotton pad to ensure that you get between the pads but not need to dunk the entire paw in the mixture though that would work too if you can keep Lola from licking.

  6. Dakota just had her cherry eye fixed and was still weeping. I put a warm damp tea bag on her eye and cleaned it. She loves it and it cleared up.

  7. This is great! I’d never thought to try chamomile! Sharing.

  8. Be careful for these horrible methods: Military Millionaire, 21 Days to Riches,
    Spider Earnings, Super Millionaire Bot, Money Code (see my assessment
    here ), Mad Earnings & Automotive Profits ALL look like both terrible scams or worthless products.

  9. Sounds terrific. Do you know if it would stain the fur yellow? I have a poor little cavaschon that has terrible allergies and would love to try this. She is white and tan. Thanks.

    • Hi
      I have a tiny, blonde Yorkie with very sensitive skin. When I give her a bath, I use 2 Chamomile teabags and boil it in a pot until I have a very strong tea. I then mix the tea in a full bucket of water. After her bath, and a thorough rinse in clean water, I submerge her in the bucket of tea-water, (only her head is above water) I try to keep her in the bucket of tea for a minute or two to give the tea a good chance to work. The result is amazing! It does not stain the white hair at all, but her coat is silky-soft, her skin is calm and soothed and she smells wonderful! As a bonus, she is extremely calm and serene when I do the rest of her grooming. Chamomile magic!
