Health Questions & Answers



I looked at your FAQ's about "hot spots" on My cat has hot spot areas that get a black crustiness on them. He has been dealing with this for about 10 years now. A Dermatologist vet did surgery about 6 years ago to laser off the areas though 50% of the areas came back. I can not afford any more surgeries. Though reading your FAQ's, I am doing everything you suggest to do; Supplements (Dinovite), probotics, fish oils, your Derma-IonX, a natural shampoo, grain free, soy & wheat free diet.  I have been doing all of this for over 3 months now and nothing is working! Can you suggest anything else? Thanks Ed

Dear Ed,

The kitty dose for Derma-IonX is about 1/4 teaspoon twice daily. I would stop the Dinovite for a while in case it binds the other supplements. I had a client with a cocker spaniel that got worse when she used Dinovite. FortiFlora is a very good probiotic and so it is completely different than Dinovite. I use probiotics whenever there is a skin problem. Maybe you can check on getting a filter for the shower and you could also get the drinking water from that faucet. If not, getting a Brita filter for the kitchen faucet or getting a Brita filter pitcher are inexpensive ways of getting better water. I wouldn't use cold water for bathing. Actually I use the kitchen sink for bathing my cat because it has the hand sprayer and it is easier for me having him at a higher level. I do my dogs in the shower that has a long hose and shower head.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
