Lived in Ohio then moved to Illinois, I have a 7 year old and 4 year old Shih-Tzu's. They developed itching, constantly moving to Illinois, which they never had a problem in Ohio. I've tried everything, including taking them to a vet for an allergy shot. Bath them in Oatmeal Shampoo for relief, nothing has helped. Could it be the change in water?

Dear Sherry,

It sounds like they are allergic to something in their environment. 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 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 dogs 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. 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
