Health Questions & Answers



Both my canine children are scratching, licking and chewing at their back, legs, paws, and tummy's. We've tried changing food to no grain, low protein with no results. We regularly flea treat and bathe with oatmeal shampoo every couple months. We also give them pet vitamins and Omega 3 fish oil. Nothing seems to lessen their itching. Its painful to watch them struggle. Please give us advice...thank you.

Dear Carrie,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for allergies. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. I would give a half dose of DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and supper food. After there are signs of improvement you can give a whole dose once a day. I would also give Probiotics. In order to improve allergies one usually needs to restore the gut flora. OMEGA 3,6,9 would also be helpful to decrease inflammation in the gut and reduce allergy symptoms.

I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. What kind of food are you feeding?

You might want to try DEFENDEX shampoo. The essential oils in it are very helpful and can provide relief.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you along the way.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
