i have a new dog for approx 1 month when i got her from local pound she had a skin rash my vet checked her for mange with a skin scrab and did not have mange. She put her on 2 week twice a day bacterial infection med and seemed to help after 4 days. She got it back on her hind legs. She is a white Pitbull and she also had an ear infection which was treated when I got her. Ii put her on 50 mg benadryl 2x's a day for the itch she is constantly chewing her hind quarters and tail to where they are raw. I have put her on 2 different high quality grain free chicken, meat free diet and still nothing any idea what else could it be yeast, bacterial? Thanks Denise

Dear Denise,

Pitbulls tend to have very sensitive skin. 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 and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include Canine probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, 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 dog 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 that uses fish or turkey as the protein source. These are considered to be cooling according to Chinese food therapy. Chicken is warming and so it would not be the best choice when the skin is already too warm.

Defendex shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. 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
