What product do I use on my cat who has extreme itching and pulling out hair?

Dear Pat,

You might want to look at some of our products to help 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. I would also suggest that you give your cat only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. As for diet, if your cat is not allergic to these protein sources you might try fish or turkey cat food since these are considered cooling according to Chinese food therapy. You would want to avoid chicken or lamb which are warming for the skin that is already too warm.

I would start with the above first. If you need to use a shampoo too you could try DEFENDEX shampoo which is nontoxic and soothing. The essential oils in it could be helpful. However, I would not suggest bathing a cat if you cannot do it safely for both you and the cat.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
