My German Shepherd dog was losing hair in clumps around her neck. Until we could determine what it was (ringworm etc.), I decided to immediately administer geranium oil orally and to apply it neat to the hairless patches.
A great tip: Save some essential oil bottles when they are empty. The geranium oil has to be mixed 1 drop to 10 drops of V-6 mixing oil and administered 1 drop per 20 pounds. I use an empty oil bottle to mix this combination so I could dispense it easily into the veggie capsules!!! So easy... so glad I saved my bottles. Plus, this way I was able to mix up enough solution to last 3 to 4 days.
We guessed that the hair loss came from her collar. The weather had been rainy and humid for several days and the collar never dried out properly.
After four days I discontinued using geranium orally and topically. There was no more hair loss, and all the hairless patches looked healthy. I switched to putting lavender on the hairless patches, and after 3 weeks all is looking great!
