Health Questions & Answers



My Bouvier Des Flandres has sensitivity to Something still not established. I have a Holistic Vet in Florida who does a biocom each year to test proteins and products used. He is on the raw food diet, supplements approved by my Vet, does not scratch in Florida, but when we return to Canada the scratching begins. Food companies are not the same of course, He is good with chicken, duck, lamb..turkey was good last year, not this year, perhaps it is the producers but Bravo, Stella and Chewys, and human grade ground did not scan well. All this to say, Something causes him to have little pimples on his back, some on his leg, and he is scratching, not all the time. I am ordering food without any veggies, fruits, kelp additions, just the meat and bone alone to see if that makes a difference, I blend my own veggies. Do you think your product can elevate his problem? Perhaps it is environmental we walk in the woods everyday? I do not use any toxic products, nor do I over vaccinate, rabies only. He is 3. Thank you in advance for your information.

Dear Joanne,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aid 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 digestion and fight infection. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing irritated skin and improves coat quality. The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine.

Diet can also influence the skin. Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. I would choose a grain free fish food since these are considered to be cooling for irritated skin according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral. Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming. If your dog is allergic to a protein do not use it even it has the correct thermal property.

I tend to use cooling or neutral foods during the summer and warming foods during the cold months.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
