First, thank you so much for Arthro-IonX as it made Cassi whole again. Torn ACL, vet said she was not a surgical candidate due to her size (140 lb Newfoundland) and previous problems with anesthesia. Cassi could not walk but until after several weeks using your Orthro-Ionx she was up and outside! So, I now turn to you agin with recurrent yeast infections unresolved for several years and now worse than ever. Since moving to Florida, Cassi has had problems with recurrent yeast infections on paws, face, eyes, neck and ears and then developing UTI with yeast. She has been on ketoconazole for 1 month on 2 weeks off for approx 2 years until she started vomiting, not eating and listless. Vet took her off that med and started fluconozole instead, no results. Approx 3 months ago started amoxicillin with just 5 days of ketaconazole. Skin improved but problems resurfaced several weeks after antibiotics stopped. then gave her what vet called "big gun antibiotic" injection which cost $172.00 for just the injection, total office visit was close to $300, also a prescription again for amoxicillin. After several weeks resurfaced so refill of amoxicillin which again did not do anything this time. Just Monday did UA C&S and started Bactrim for UTI, again fluconazole for skin issues, and will call me in 7 days with C&S results to see if antibiotics need to be changed. I am truly sick over what Cassi is going through for several years with no results. Her problems surface in spring thru summer and are better during the winter months. She eats mostly our grass raised beef and chicken and turkey that I cook with a small amount of dog food. Vet whiched us to several dog foods that they carried but other than $80 a bag, they did not work. We keep her shaved and bath as vet prescribed once weekly with Zymox shampoo and selsun blue.Is Cassi too sick for your Derma-Ionx? I would appreciate your recommendations. Thank you.

Dear Kathi,

You might want to look at some of our products to help heal the skin. It is not too late to use Derma-IonX. Derma-IonX 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. The probiotics are especially important to crowd out the yeast. 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 with fish or turkey as the protein source since they are considered to be cooling according to Chinese food therapy. These would be preferable during the summer. Beef is neutral. Chicken and lamb are warming and would not be the best choices during summer.

Defendex shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. You might want to alternate between Zymox and Defendex. 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 and to give us updates.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
