Dear Marshall,

You might want to look at some of our products to help 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 probiotics, MSM, vitamin C, 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.

DEFENDEX shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. However since it is very concentrated you would only need to use a tiny amount. You could wash the ear flap but avoid getting any water into the ear canal. If there is an infection in the canal I like to use an enzymatic eardrop called Zymox otic. Using these products can help to resolve a difficult condition. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char www.vetionx.com
