Health Questions & Answers



My 3 yr. old Morkie (Maltese & Yorkie) is constantly scratching around ears & face. He starts around 4:30 am and continues until around 6:00 am.  Sometimes during the day he will lay on his back and waller. He is on Trifextes for fleas, heartworm etc. from the vets. He doesn't have fleas. He is brushed and bathed every week. We have had his ears checked for infections and ear mites. No mites but was on meds for an ear infection. We feed him Royal Canine Hypoallergenic dry food in the AM and fresh veggies (broccoli or cabbage or cauliflower and apples) in the PM. He is on Fish Oil and 1/2 of a shed terminator, since this also contains fish oil daily and Angel Eyes every other day. I have noticed him licking his stomach lately. I ordered the Derma-IonX today to see if this will elimate his scratching. Could you please suggest help with this problem. Thank you for your help..... -Claudia-

Dear Claudia,

You might want to consider some of our other products to help heal 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. The supplements I use along with it include Canine Probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and Omega 3,6,9 (which is fish and plant oils). Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

Defendex shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
