Dear Margie,

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 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 on troublesome spots on the skin. You can also apply liquid iodine on the spots, but I use the clear kind so that it doesn't stain fabrics in your house. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. If Blue Ribbon Holistic dog food contains grains I would try a grain free food until the ringworm is eradicated.

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. We also like to get updates so we can help you better.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
