Good afternoon. Quite simply does the Derma-IonX work? I have a nine year old male Labrador Retriever who is constantly itching himself. It is to the point at times that you barely can touch him. A steroid shot or pills do help his condition but they wear off and make him very aggressive. Would this product offer the opportunity to get him some relief from his itching conditions?

Dear Bob,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aids the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

Initially I would give a half dose of DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and supper food. After there are signs of improvement you can give a whole dose once a day. I would also give Probiotics to aid the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing irritated skin and improves coat quality. The water you give should be filtered.

Diet can also influence the skin. Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. I would choose a grain free fish or turkey food since these are considered to be cooling for inflamed skin according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral. Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming.

Do you know what your dog is allergic to? Has your dog had any fleas recently? What medication does your dog take?

I would also consult with a veterinary chiropractor. It sometimes helps with allergies too.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
