My cat has been pulling out her hair on both sides of flanks. Excessive licking and piles of hair on the ground. Feels very warm to the touch, and she does not like it when the areas are touched. There are not bald spots.

Dear Jill,

DERMA-IONX has been helpful in feline dermatitis. As for dosing the DERMA-IONX, I prefer to add 10 drops onto some canned food twice daily at breakfast and supper. If you need to you can give another 10 drops orally at bedtime. I also give probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9 to improve digestion and reduce inflammation.

Feeding a grain free diet would be wise at this time. Do you give your cat any treats? Check the label.

If your water contains chlorine offer purified water instead.

I would also suggest that your cat be checked for internal parasites if it hasn't been done recently. Bring in a stool sample to your veterinarian so it can be checked.

Please keep us updated.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
