Health Questions & Answers



I have a 12 year old  Westie that suffers from yeast skin infections (turns black) causing her to itch and chew.  She has been on Atopica for years but I am not comfortable with drug chemicals ans she gets sick. With a loss of a job I am trying to find a more affordable treatment that is less harsh. Will Vetionx help her condition?  I am going to start bathing with Nizorol and I also found an herbal remedy called Allergy itch. Please advise.

Dear Carole,

You might want to look at Derma-IonX and Defendex shampoo to help heal the skin. Derma-IonX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces itching and inflammation, promotes healing of the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include Canine probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and Omega 3,6,9. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response.

I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. For the dietary modifications you might want to try a grain-free diet for a while.

Defendex shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition. Can you tell me what is in Allergy Itch?

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
