Hi I have an 8 year old female pug and she has been having a terrible time with being itchy for months now. We have taken her to the vet and she was given Benadryl and Prednisone, which only worked for a very short time. She did have fleas and was treated w/ flea treatment from her vet as well. I would greatly appreciate any insight you may have. Thank you.

Dear Jennifer,

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 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 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

I have an eight year old female Bichon Frise. For the last three years she seems to get bites on her paws and bum and inside hind legs after going to the bathroom. She likes to go in leaves. She itches her paws aggressively during the day. I have tried every kind natural foods, the best recommended, etc. nothing helps. No fleas, bugs, etc.
