We have a 8 year old Yorkie we adopted from a shelter. She had been abused, locked in a cage for 9 straight months, and never allowed out. When she was found, she was covered in urine and feces. Much care was done with her before we adopted her, and she has the skin damge from the abuse. We are wondering if the Derma-IonX would be good for her to make her situation better and repair the damage to her skin. Thank you. -Michelle-

Dear Michelle,

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 can make a difference in the skin. Emotions can impact the functioning of the body. If there are some lingering emotional problems as well you might want to consider Anxietrex.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
