After having my dog groomed, she began to shed lots of fur. I brush and comb her daily and her skin won't stop flaking and itching. Is there anything at home we can use to help stop this?

You might want to look at two of our products, Derma-IonX and Defendex shampoo to help heal the skin. Derma-IonX, which is an oral homeopathic product, stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces itching and flakiness, promotes healing of the skin, and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include digestive enzymes, probiotics, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster 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 you might want to try a grain free diet for a while.

Defendex shampoo, which was designed to fight against fleas and mites, also washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve many skin conditions. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
