My dog has seborrhea (oily and dry) he is 9 years old. I would like to try to help him heal without antibiotics because he will take them but after a few days with no problems but about day 5 he starts to vomit a couple hrs after taking the antibiotic. So its hard to get him to finish the round of antibiotics. Do you feel I should try the Derma-IonX and the Omega 3/6/9 products. He is a mix chihuahua and possible corgi not sure he isn't your typical small chihuahua dog he leans to being medium size dog. He is overweight he weighs about 28 lbs and should weigh 23 lbs.

Dear Nina,

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 aids 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. Probiotics are especially important when antibiotics have been used. Vetionx has these and from the health food store you can get MSM and vitamin C for rebuilding the skin. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

For the dietary modifications you might want to try feeding cooling foods according to Chinese food therapy.

Fish and turkey are considered to be cooling. Chicken and lamb are warming and would best be avoided in the summer months or if you live in a warm climate. Of course if your dog has a food sensitivity do not give that food.

For shampooing I would try DEFENDEX shampoo which is soothing and yet nontoxic. Be sure to use non-chlorinated water in the bath.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
