Dear Cindy,

You might want to look at some of our products to help the skin. DERMA-IONX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces itching and inflammation, promotes healing of the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. I would put 10 drops on some canned food twice daily on each of their meals. The supplements I use along with it include PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9. Together with DERMA-IONX it produces a synergistic effect. I would also suggest that you give your cats only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. As for diet, if your cats are not allergic to these protein sources you might try a fish or turkey based grain free food since these are considered cooling according to Chinese food therapy which can be helpful in dealing with hot irritated skin. You would want to avoid chicken or lamb which are warming for the skin if it is already too warm. Beef is neutral. Avoid treats that have artificial colorings.

After the fleas are all gone bring in a stool sample toyour veterinarain to have it checked for tapeworms. Cats that have tapeworms can develop skin problems.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions or to let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
