Health Questions & Answers



One of my cats has developed small areas of crusty scaby places around her neck, ears, and under chin. She itches so much. i am giving her pet omegas once a day and I am now trying the Derma-lonX. I can not see that it is helping as much as I had hoped it would. I have been using it about a month. I am now thinking it could be a food allergy.  Getting her to eat a grain free food is impossible, as I have tried many many different kinds. she does eat can food too. I have tried organic foods with no luck.  Just wish I could clear up her skin problem. She is 5 yrs old.   Thank you, -Susan-

Dear Susan,

There are a few things that you might do to aid the difficulties you are having with the skin. If you haven't recently brought a stool sample in to your veterinarian for a parasite check it would be advisable. Tapeworms can contribute to skin issues.

Diet is important. If you can try a fish or turkey based food for a while that might be helpful. Try to avoid chicken or any GMO grains. Besides the Omegas try to sprinkle a digestive enzyme such as Prozyme on the food and a probiotic such as Purina's FortiFlora. Keep using Derma-IonX for another two months to give it enough time. I would give a half dose twice daily with breakfast and supper. Make sure the product does not contact metal.

Please let us know how your cat does.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
