Health Questions & Answers



What else can I try to get my dog to stop from scratching? It's his neck and elbows. His elbows are hot spots. Already had him at the vet multiple times. Also took him to the allergy vet and had a greer test. Tried Ivermectin, it did not work. He did a skin tape test and said it was negative. Why did he not do a skin scraping? Food allergy ruled out also. Steroids work great only for emergency. Oatmeal baths from groomers, and medicated shampoo from vet also. Fatty oils in food too, nothing is working. Please Help! -Kathy-

Dear Kathy,

You might want to look at two of our products, 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 digestive enzymes, probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. It can also be used topically if there are troublesome spots on the skin. 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 was designed to fight against fleas and mites also washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
