Health Questions & Answers



To the Dr.: After treating my 2 cats with flea meds they developed this scaby, scaly rough patches all over their skin..they scratch and lick each other alot. They are brother and sister and are about 10 years old. Could it be the flea meds? We also have two other new cats in the house, could it be anxiety issue? Please help, thanks. Susan

Dear Susan,

You might want to look at some of our products 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 probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. I would also suggest that you give your cat 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 is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. However, only try giving a bath if you can do it safely for both you and your cat. If you use it dilute a small amount since it is very concentrated and don't let the shampoo stand. Just get the bath over with quickly. Using these 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
