So, my doggie has a lower lip rash, she's had it for a while. I read on here maybe the zinc supplement would help, I gave her that for a like month and half I think, but no effect, it also I think contributes to her sensitive stomach so I don't want to keep giving it to her. I switched her to orijen so I am hoping anything related to a zinc deficiency will be fixed by the food.

Now I am wondering if there is some ointment I can put on it? The vet mentioned that there was an ointment to prescribe, unfortunately forgot to follow up on actually getting the ointment. But I am wondering if there is anything natural and less harsh than a prescription to try first? Like can I put aloe gel on it? Or tea tree oil? I presume she will lick it off her lip fast, so it needs to be safe for dogs to swallow. I presume a little aloe vera is just fine for her to swallow. Not sure about tea tree oil? Is there any good topical solution for lower lip rash?

Reading online I am thinking maybe mix like 50% coconut oil + 40% aloe gel + 10% tea tree oil? I know that'd fix in any rash for me, but is that ok to put on the dogs lip?

I also think she has a pencil-eraser sized spot of the same kind of rash on the outside fold of her vulva.

I would hesitate to allow ingestion of tea tree oil for a dog. coconut and pure aloe (not all aloe you buy in the sunburn aisle is pure aloe) will be fine. It takes a while to see results when it comes to a zinc issue. Multiple months for the skin to heal and then grow back fur so it could still be a zinc issue. Looks similar to what my girl had years ago that went away with zinpro supplement. The supplements needs to be slowly worked into their diet or it will cause upset.

I've also used straight up neosporin before on spots if I thought it could be some kind of bacterial issue. Does a pretty good job of nipping stuff up. doesn't seem to bother being ingested in the small amount little lip things produce. Sticky enough they usually don't completely clean it off.

Our female Dakota has a very similar spot on her upper lip, we have tried a few sprays and creams and it is still there after about 6 weeks. As described it's about the size of a pencil eraser. She is due for her shots soon so we are going to see what the vet thinks. It don't seem to bother her but she don't willing allow us to try and inspect it. If you have had any progress please post so we can try something similar.
