Health Questions & Answers



I have 2 Shih Tzu dogs, brother and sister (6 years old), that have allergy and anal gland problems and sometimes ear problem. They are on hydroxyzine and at times, prednisone. I also use special shampoo from the vet. A vet wanted the girl to be on Atopica, which I didn't want to give her, because of the side affects. What can I do to help them to be better?

Dear Ruth,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for allergic 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.

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

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
