My cat won't stop licking and chewing his paw and tummy to where he has no hair. I administer Revolution every month for protection of fleas, Vet gave him a shot of steroid but a 3 day treatment, but did not help anyway. I don't want him taking that, it's dangerous. What can I do?

Dear Margaret,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many 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 skin and improves coat quality.

Diet can also influence the skin. What do you feed your cat? What kind of water do you give?

Have you had a stool sample checked for parasites? If there are parasites, it will make things worse.

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

Best regards,

Dr. Char
