Health Questions & Answers



Dear Char, my cat Jelly has been having chronic ear infections from scratching a lot. She has had steroid injection x1, and eardrops from the vet. She is on her second type of drops. She also had oral ABX [amox]. Finally the vet took a culture and said she would call me back this week-have not heard back. She also chews at her left front forefoot. The vet did not mention possible anxiety issue. My colleague said her friends cat had this same issue. They gave her medication to calm her and other adjunct therapy. Please advise. One change I made was keeping her out of my bedroom because she was shedding too much. I took care of the shedding by transitioning her over to Avoderm food and her coat is so soft and healthy now. I am going to re-introduce her to my bedroom again. This may be the main issue. PS we have a dog-she tolerates, but I know she would like to get her own spot again. Help?

Dear Mary,

You might want to look at some of our products to help heal the skin and ears. 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 probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. I would also suggest that you give your cat only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

I would also allow your cat access to your bedroom and areas where the dog can't go. Make sure there is an easy access to litter boxes without going past the dog in case that is an issue. That might reduce the anxiety level.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions or let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
