My female cat scratches and grooms constantly. At night she scratches and i find little scab or small blood spots on the table with her hair attached. She looks raggedy in he back end. She is also biting at her back feet and grooming them more than the front. That also is an area she looks raggedy. Do you think this is something that your Derma-IonX would work? I cannot afford to buy anything that won't work. I am trying to put some salmon oil in her food, but she needs something more I can see that. Thanks

Dear Connie,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aids 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 the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing irritated skin and improves coat quality.

Diet can also influence the skin. Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. I would choose a grain free fish or turkey food since these are considered to be cooling for inflamed skin according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral. Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming.

If your veterinarian has not checked a stool sample recently for parasite eggs, it would be wise to bring one in. Internal parasites can affect the skin. You should also check for external parasites using a fine tooth flea comb.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
