My cat is constantly ripping out her own fur. She started last fall and my vet thought it could be an allergy to either her food or fleas. We treated both and she';D calmed down but recently she's started again. I don't want her unhappy, I just don't know where to turn!

Dear Rachele,

DERMA-IONX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which aids the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include Probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. The OMEGA 3.6.9 is especially helpful for soothing the skin. These supplements together with DERMA-IONX can produce a synergistic response. I would also suggest that you give your cat only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. If your cat will let you, wipe her coat with a damp wash cloth everyday. There are a lot of allergens in the air right now so keep the windows closed if possible.

I would also give a grain free diet. Fish or turkey as the protein source might be better than chicken or lamb to start with. If you know a particular food is an allergen, do not give it. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions or to let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
