My dog has some sort of skin problem. It recently started from her becoming a woman as a dog. she went from playful puppy to scratching, ripping hair, and awful sores. She ruins her skin and I've tried everything. It doesn't seem to be fleas because I treat her for that and I've had steroid treatments for her from vets that are costly and don't work. Do you possibly know what I can do or what might be happening?

Dear Sarah,

DERMA-IONX which is an oral homeopathic product is very safe and can help with many different types of skin problems. I like to split the dose and give a half a dose with breakfast and a half dose with supper. After some improvement is seen you can switch to a whole dose once daily on one of the meals. DERMA-IONX is gentle and stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which aids the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. These supplements together with DERMA-IONX can produce a synergistic 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 a grain free diet with cooling proteins according to Chinese food therapy can be helpful. If your dog is warm and seeks cool places to relax in, she might do better with the cooling diet. Fish and turkey are considered to be cooling so would be better choices than chicken or lamb which are warming. Beef is neutral. Of course if your dog has a food sensitivity to a particular food do not give that food. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions or to let us know how you are doing so we can help guide you.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
