I can't tell if my dog has hot spots from fleas or if it's a skin disorder, it's definitely worse in the summer, our back yard isn't the cleanest! I'm just wondering if as bad as she is if I should bathe her with flea soap or oatmeal soap and keep applying the topical solution or give up and take her to the vet that I can't really afford

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 inflammation, 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, MSM, vitamin C, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX, it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. It can also be used topically if there are troublesome spots on the skin. 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. If there are any fleas on her you will probably spot them. In between baths you can use the flea comb to help find any. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.
