Health Questions & Answers



My 6 year old cat is suffering from what our Vet is calling "environmental allergies". I take him to the Vet who gives him a steroid injection. He responds to it quite rapidly but then after 2-3 months he's suffering again. I do not want him to be injected with steroids every couple of months as I have heard it is not good for their immune system, etc. I ordered the Derma-IonX in hopes that this will help. Am I doing the right thing and is there anything else I can do? Vet says it is not a food allergy. He is on prescription dry food (Cannin SO since he suffered with struvite urine crystals a couple of yrs ago having to undergo surgery). I am afraid to change food for this reason since he has done so well as far as that issue is concerned. Thank you for your opinion.

Dear Susan,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for allergic skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aids 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 the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing irritated skin and improves coat quality. The water you give should be filtered.

I would also consult with a veterinary chiropractor. It sometimes helps with allergies too.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
