I have on occasion used warm olive oil on my hair and it was easy to wash out. I think a oiled dog is hard to stomach first thing in the morning. I also think the dog would feel cold spending the night greased up. Collecting a urine sample does not sound like fun but I bet it is funny to observe. I can just imagine your boy shooting you dirty looks as he tries to do his business in peace. The ladle is a great idea but the mental picture makes me giggle. Kudos to you for being proactive treating your dog.

You are right on about the dirty looks. Now you are making me laugh. Better that than weeping!

I am going to try the grapeseed oil on my own hair. I can use some more shine myself! And it is a lot less smelly than any of the other oils in our pantry.

Hi,
I can only tell you what we do with our male Standard Poodle w/ SA.

We started out doing what you are doing....traditional oil bath, put in crate for an hour, wash/rinse etc. etc. until I was told about a Poodle person that had been working on a special goat milk soap and special oil treatment that she had good results with. We have now been using it for about 2 years and while it doesn't make the SA go away completely it definitely has helped and the process is comparatively easy. Basically, the process is to wash the dog with the soap, followed by a vinegar rinse and then dry the dog. After that, you spray the dog with this oil product, rub it in a little. I then, take our dog out for "Frisbee" time for a short while and when brought back in he is dry.

If you are interested contact....Sheree Stone at 1-832-212-1306 or huntingpoodles@hotmail.com (she is in Texas I think)

Hope this helps,

DavidT

Thank you. I may give that a try. I am not seeng any new hair growth yet from the "standard" treatment, but he's only had four of them. I don't think there is any new flaking, but the ears are still losing hair.

When you spray him with that oil does it dry non-greasy?

Hi again,

It does seem a little greasy for a short while, but goes away and doesn't seem to leave oil on anything that we have noticed. Smells fairly strong for awhile also. Also, if you go to arpeggiiopoodles.tripod.com/growinghaironadoorknob.html there is a recipe entitled "Growing Hair on a Doorknob". I have not tried this, but if you do, please let me know how it worked.

Oh, I remember seeing that piece. Now I know what she was talking about. I will take another look at it. Thanks.

ETA: I'm guessing it was the price of the Lixotinic that kept you from trying the doorknob hair formula (over $100/gallon)? Yikes. I will keep it in mind though. Desperate times call....
