Health Questions & Answers



I have a 5 yr. old mixed breed (Rott & Pit) dog named Bsloo. We have had him to 3 vets within the last year. It started out (as we were told) was Allergies so they gave him steroid shots and antihisatime pills (10 mg) a day twice a day. He looked like someone had poured instant mashed poatoes all over his back) with a foul odor (like stinky feet) and brown like wax in his ears. I was told by another vet that he had Mange so we ordered a Sulfur Shampoo and the dandruff has never returned. Cleared right up. Now we are being told by aother vet that he has Candida Yeast (Leaky Gut). We have started him on a Holastic Food within the last week. He itches all the time and still smells. We are at a loss of words and not to mention $ $ but what can we do for him for the hot spots, the itchness and the foul odor. Rosemary

Dear Rosemary,

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. What is in the new food? Does your dog seem to warm or cool most of the time? Has your dog's thyroid been checked?

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
