My Havanese has very flaky skin. Her ears started to have very dry skin going into the canal and now the entire body is like dandruff. She does not itch at it but does lick her paws occasionally. She also has just been diagnosed in the last 2 weeks with Cushing's Disease. What would you suggest I give her for this? She is a Pet Therapy dog and being black with white dandruff is not pleasing to the patients. Thank You. Bonnie

For Cushings I have used DIA-IONX and Phophatidyl serine. Phosphatidyl serine should be available from a health food store. In addition it is helpful to give PROBIOTICS, and OMEGA 3,6,9. The other three products are available from Vetionx. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. I I would feed a grain free diet but any diet changes should be made gradually.

The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. Acupuncture might also be helpful.
