Our 5 year old female collie has flaky skin,redness to her tummy and legs, and also has an odor that won't go away even after a bath. About 3 years ago, we took her to the dog groomers and they shaved her down to no hair at all, even on her tail. It seems like that is when all these skin issues happened.

Dear Robbie,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It 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 fight infection. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing irritated skin and improves coat quality. The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine.

Diet can also influence the skin. Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. I would choose a grain free fish or turkey food since these are considered to be cooling for irritated skin according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral. Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming. If your dog is allergic to a protein do not use it even it has the correct thermal property.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.

Best regards,
