Health Questions & Answers



It appears my Aussie has a dermatitis, red skin, constant itching, and heavy scaling. We are away from our family vet and cannot find a vet locally that will see her. I have tried cortisone spray, oatmeal baths, brushing and even Benadryl, but nothing seems to help. Her hair appears to be oily but looks dull and is shedding a lot. Is there anything else I can try to ease this for her? She is 7 years old, in excellent health until this and it will be 6-8 weeks before we will be able to see her regular vet.

Thank you so much,

Dear Bill,

You might want to look at two of our products, Derma-IonX and Defendex shampoo to help heal 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 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. Defendex is designed to fight against fleas and mites also washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions. Hopefully by time you get back to see your regular veterinarian the skin will be better.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
