We have two standard poodles who have had many large, med., small sebaceous cysts. One dog had 20 removed over a 5 yr. period, the other dog had 24 removed over a 6 yr. period. Our Vet does not desire to perform any more of these surgeries. Changing their diet, which was done several times, make no difference. They are bathed with a veterinary shampoo purchased with the vet. clinic. Nothing helps, the veterinary doctors are clueless. -Bonnie-

Dear Bonnie,

I would use Anxietrex. It contains a remedy that is used for sebaceous cysts. In Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine the cysts are considered to be an accumulation of damp heat in the skin. To minimize this I would feed a fish or turkey based food (if your dog is not allergic to it) because these are considered to more cooling than other protein sources. I would also avoid any grains that could be GMO. In addition the supplements that I recommend are Canine Probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and Omega 3,6,9. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

Defendex shampoo which was designed to fight against fleas and mites also washes away debris and soothes the skin. It is nontoxic and does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate as most shampoos do. 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
