Health Questions & Answers



Dr. Char, My 9 year old Trinity started overgrooming late 2009. We've ruled out fleas and infection and fungus. We tested her for allergies and tried allergy shots - she tolerated them for awhile but then wouldn't any longer and I'm not sure they were making a big difference. We tried the Vetionx - Derma-IonX for a full bottle - including spraying some on her and twice a day dose - no improvement. She doesn't take oral meds well - is adept at spitting them back out at me. Regular vet suggested that we explore anti-anxiety med. Is there anything that I could give her transdermally that might help along those lines? I'm concerned that any other treatment would not work because she fights oral/pill doses so well. I can get drops into her but not pills. I am so sad that my beautiful sweetie hasn't found anything that works for her yet. Thoughts?  -Cynthia-

Dear Cynthia,

You might try Anxietrex our oral product for anxiety. I would also recheck a stool sample. (Make sure the sample is put into a centrifuge. This helps to increase the odds of finding tapeworms.) I have found that some pets with tapeworms have a tendency to groom a lot. If that is negative, then I would suggest you try acupuncture and or chiropractic treatment.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
