Health Questions & Answers



My black lab service dog is constantly itching and biting, scratching. The vet says it is a staph infection, and put him on an antibiotic which I don't think is working. What is the reason that my dog would be getting this so much. He is also sneezing as well as shedding. He gets a bath with no fragrance at least 2x a month, the hair is also making my disease worse. Please can you give me advise? I have found that not many vets know about how to treat service dogs.

Dear Barbara,

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 kind of food are you currently feeding?

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
