Hello Doctor! I took in a neighbor's cat that passed away---and the cat was subject to flea infestation for at least 5 years. Needless to say--she came to me with problem the remnants of 3000 flea bites/dermatitis...and quite ill. We used revolution to fight all enemies she had...worms, etc...and still...3 months plus later---her dermatitis is still flaring. Due to the sensitivity of feline metabolism--and limitations of treating...them....I am skeptical to use the I can hardly pronounce the ingredients--or know what they are. Do you have any steadfast options for me to treat this sweet cat topically or internally....without reservation---that it won't hurt her? she is mine forever now...I just want to relieve her of this itching and chronic skin disease. I thank you so much---wish I lived closer...! I would come to you, but am on the east side of Michigan... sincerely, Pam

Dear Pam,

It is common to develop skin issues after having had fleas. Cats can develop an allergy to flea saliva and also acquire tapeworms from the fleas. If you have not already, bring a stool sample to your veterinarian to check if your cat needs to be wormed for tapeworms.

DERMA-IONX is safe and can help with the allergy response. I prefer to add 10 drops to the food at breakfast and supper. Once improvement is seen you can give 20 drops once a day on one of the meals. I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to restore the gut and reduce inflammation.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
