Health Questions & Answers



I have a 12 year old Lab who has lost (and is still losing) her hair. It started at the base of her tail with an area of scally dandruff and has progressed up her back to her shoulders. The area around her tail is quite hot to the touch and she smells horrible, no bath can take the smell away. I bath her often and put her on a natural diet, give her fish oil, vitamins, brewers yeast and olive oil on her food.

Dear Lynda,

 I would suggest that you bathe your dog in our DefendeX shampoo to help cool the skin and try Derma-IonX internally by adding it to the food or water.  Because of the homeopathic ingredients in it, it works quickly to provide relief. However generally several months should be allowed to really get healing underway.   To better understand the cause behind these symptoms you might want to have a blood test done to check thyroid function.  If that is OK then I would suggest a serum sample be submitted for allergy testing.  As you learn more let us know and we would be happy to offer more suggestions.<br /><br />

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
