“My dog had a sore on his lower neck and the paste was the only thing that healed it! We tried everything for 4 months hoping it would help or heal it but nothing worked except the paste.” ~Andrea Kolbus


COAT DEFENSE® Canine & Cats TROUBLE SPOT DRYING PASTE is a spot treatment for broken skin. It creates a dry protective scab-like barrier that continuously draws, dries, stops itch, and calms skin from traumas like wounds, oozing bug bites, and weeping hot spots allowing for the immune system to quickly repair.

It is non-toxic if licked and can be reapplied as needed. Please use a cone until dry if necessary.

Many pets find relief within 1-3 days. For those on anti-biotics and/or steroids, or have otherwise been immune compromised, results and healing may take 1-2 weeks.

NOTICE:  For best results, discontinue use of shampoos containing SODIUM LAUREL SULFATE, CHLORAHEXIDINE, COAL TAR, and SALYCILIC ACID. If using medicated shampoos with these ingredients, we recommend waiting 3 days to apply our paste.  These chemicals are known skin allergens and remove the protective oils and microbiome that are essential for skin wellness and required by the immune system to provide true healing.

  • Broken Skin
  • Wounds
  • Weeping hot spots
  • Oozing itchy bug bites
  • Humans love it too for bites, stings, poison ivy, acne, splinters, etc.!
  • Gently clean any dirt or debris from treatment area. Flaky skin or scabs are ok. DO NOT pick off any existing scabs.
  • With one hand, gently push back fur so that the area is exposed. With the other hand, use fingers to apply a coating of the paste to the hotspot as if spreading peanut butter on a piece of bread. Do not rub in. 
  • Note: Try to avoid applying paste to fur. The paste is not harmful, though it will dry like a scab and require bathing or brushing to remove.
  • Paste will dry to a near white shell. It is also effective if thinned out with water or witch hazel. Some breeds have coats that need a thinner viscosity to stick to skin.
  • Avoid applying the paste into paws, on joints or in skin folds. The scab that forms is abrasive.
  • Allow at least 2 days for skin cells to knit together under its protection. Use a wet cloth or water to remove.
  • Reapply as needed until skin is completely healed.
  • Use COAT DEFENSE® Canine & Cats daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER to prevent future flare-ups. It’s a game changer for prevention!

Proprietary blend of sodium bicarbonate, maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, bentonite clay, zea mays (corn starch), witch hazel, argan oil, organic cedrus atlantica oil (cedarwood oil).

    Saved My Stray a Vet Visit!

    The Coat Paste saved my outdoor “stray” a stressful vet visit and saved my wallet probably hundreds. My sweet Baby has been here for two years and was TNR. She gives me kisses and licks me and is a love bug. We have 9 inside kitties and that is our limit. I spend a lot of time with Baby though. She broke out in itchy scabs and scratched til they got bloody. I tried other liquid would and anti inflammatory itch products. She hated them and the application stressed her out with no results. Saw Coat Defense and decided to try. WOW!!! From the first application overnight I saw results. Baby also doesn’t mind my applying it and is very patient. It’s been four days since first application and her scabs are drying up and her fur is growing back super soft. She’s going to be fine. She is still on the young side and is a very active outside kitty. Eventually we will take her in but right now all is good. She knows her name and comes when I call her. We are on a cul de sac with plenty of roaming space for her. Thank you Coat Defense!

    Amazing Healing Result

    My 125lb Doberman had licked a significant sore on the bottom of his toe/pad. We tried all sorts of medical treatments to get this sore to heal to no avail. A family member spoke to me about Coat Defense and I looked into it. I ordered the shampoo, powder and drying paste. We used the drying paste on my Dobie's toe and the results are amazing. I wish I would have known about this product would have saved me worry and my pup discomfort!

    This has helped my senior dog’s weeping hot spots…however, I’m going to return to the vet to check his thyroid. I feel this may be causing his broken skin and hot spots. We’ve been on the Apoquel to Predizone to antibiotic train for some time now. Once off Predizone and antibiotics and back on Apoquel, the hot spots emerge..then become a yeast infection. I truly believe it’s more than an allergy. But in the meantime, the Coat Defense had brought much needed relief.

    Good stuff

    Have not used it on my daughter's dog yet. I have used it myself to help with mosquito bites that usually puff up. Works well and helped heal areas that were inflamed. Plan to use on the dog as needed.

    Excellent product

    I use this paste on my greyhound with allergies on her toes and back of feet! I have to thin it out a little but it’s an awesome product! Helps to soothe the redness and I use it on my bug bites too!
