Health Questions & Answers



I have a question that I hope you can answer. My cat was diagnosed with eosinophilic granuloma. Before I had my cat tested for this skin condition, he was given depo shots to help calm down the lesions. When Atopica was approved for cats, my vet suggested that this would be the best alternative for him because I am aware of the serious side effect of the Depo shots. My cat is 2 years old and has probably had 4 - 5 shots already and I really don't want to ever give them to him again but it seems to be the only thing that actually works for Milo. I was told by my vet to keep using the Atopica. In my personal opinion I was not seeing any results. Milo still was biting and he was still getting the thick patch of lesions. I had originally bought the Derma Ionx for this condition in the beginning but I never used it because I was told by by vet that it wouldn't work and she couldn't give her consent on such. Well I got desperate because after the Depo shot wore off Milo was getting his thick lesions again. He usually gets them on his hind legs and on his chest. I started using the Atopica along with the Derma-Ionx and wouldn't you know, the lesions on his chest went away. I thought all was good until today I noticed that he has them back on his hind legs. He doesn't let me touch his hind legs so I really didn't see how bad it looked. It looks as if a strip of fur is missing and there are some lesions (bumps) present. I was wondering if you have any other suggetions of the products you sell. Milo is an all black furry cat and is otherwise a healthy, playful cat. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.  -Antinette-

Dear Antinette,

In addition to Derma-IonX I would give digestive enzymes, probiotics, Vitamin C, and fish oil. We carry a fish oil: Omega 3/6/9. The book of Natural Veterinary Medicine states if your cat has a red tongue and forceful pulse that Hoxsey Formula should be considered. I am not sure of the dose. It might be 0.2 ml per 5 pounds of body weight. I would start with the other supplements first.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
