Health Questions & Answers



Hi there, We have a 4 year old Chocolate Lab. She suffers from allergies and I really don't want to give her anymore shots. I apply tea tree oil to her rashes and it seems to help, but I';D really like to give her something that is more effective. What do you recommend? The second issue is that she seems to have hurt herself yesterday and is battling to walk a bit. She is normally extremely active. A vet said it might be the beginnings of hip dysplasia. Surgery seems like an extreme measure. Is there another way I can help her so that she doesn't develope a more serious problem later on in life? Many thanks Alana

Dear Alana,

You might want to look at some of our products to help with the allergies. 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.

Defenedex 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. The above will also help with her joint soreness. I would also strongly recommend consulting with a veterinary chiropractor which could be beneficial for both the allergies and mobility.

If something more is still needed for the hips you might want to try Arthro-IonX.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
