DERMA-IONX has been helpful for a variety of different skin conditions. DERMA-IONX is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aid the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

Initially 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 to aid digestion and the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 can reduce inflammation and help the skin and coat.

The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine. Chlorine is not good for the intestinal flora. Diet can also influence the skin. What do you feed your dog? Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. Please read the label to check what proteins are in your food. When there are skin problems I usually choose a grain free food. If your dog is warm and seeks cool places then I would choose cooling proteins such as fish or turkey as the protein source according to Chinese food therapy. If your dog seeks warm places then chicken, lamb, or venison might be better. Beef is neutral. If your dog is allergic to a protein do not use it. Any food changes need to be phased in gradually, starting with a little new food added to the previous food.

You can brush the coat daily to help remove the dandruff. If you are up to bathing your dog you could use DEFENDEX shampoo which is soothing and cleansing for the skin. Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.
