My 3 yr old male cat gets a seasonal skin irritation. Always around May Thru Aug. He gets small bumps on his tummy and crust on his tail and chews his paws till they bleed, we addressed it with Prednisone for 2 years and it works great but.... I'd like to look at alternatives. He's see 4 vets and a skin specialist so far. thank you.

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 digestive enzymes, probiotics, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX, it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. It can also be used topically if there are troublesome spots on the skin. I would also suggest that you give your cat 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.

I hope you can avoid using steroids this year. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
