I brought my Chihuahua from Pennsylvania. He has always itched as a 2 month old puppy. He is now 6 months and still scratches. Sometimes it drives me crazy and I'll scratch him myself. He does not like for me to see him scratch and he will run and do it somewhere private. Can you help him?

Dear Mable,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for allergic 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 skin and improves coat quality. Giving it orally helps to moisturize the skin.

Diet can also influence the skin. What do you feed your dog? What kind of water do you give?

You should also check the fur for any signs of fleas or flea debris. Many pets develop allergies to fleas.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you along the way.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
