My cat is about 2.5 yrs old, at about 1 year old we had her fixed, since the operation she has been struggling with a hot spot (a small red spot shows up or red lines on her belly area, she bites and licks it - it gets worse, area gets larger, I go to the vet, she gets a shot of steroids and antibiotics, gets alot better, however does not go away), she did not have any spots before the operation (note: I took her back to the vet a week after she got fixed and showed the vet a small red spot and he said it probably was an allergic reaction to a flea bit ) however it has never fully gone away - and now it has been 1 year and 4 months since the operation, and the little spot has grown to a few inches in size (red spot with little to no hair) I want to help my cat - what can I do to help her get her skin back? Thank you so much with any suggestions! Tim

Dear Tim,

DERMA-IONX has been helpful in feline dermatitis. As for dosing the DERMA-IONX, I prefer to add 10 drops onto some canned food twice daily at breakfast and supper. If you need to you can give another 10 drops orally at bedtime. I also give probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9 to improve digestion and reduce inflammation.

Feeding a grain free diet would be wise at this time. If you give your cat any treats please check the label for grains and chemicals.

If your water contains chlorine offer purified water instead.

I would also suggest that your cat be checked by a veterinary chiropractor. During anesthesia it is possible for the spine to subluxate a little. Pressure on a nerve can influence the skin innervated by it.

Please keep us updated.

Best regards,Dr. Char
