Dear Sandra,

Do you know what your dog is allergic to? You might want to look at some of our products to help with allergies and 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 MSM, vitamin C, probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. 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. For the dietary modifications you might want to try a grain- free diet for a while. I would try either turkey, fish, or beef as the protein source if she is not allergic to it; those foods are not as heat producing as chicken or lamb according to Chinese food therapy.

DEFENDEX shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using these products can help to improve the skin and coat condition. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions. Please keep us updated and we can help guide you.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
