Health Questions & Answers



I have a 6 year old Weimaraner who has been itching since last April. I have changed diet several times, built his immune system, etc. I recently did a hair analysis and found he has toxicity to Mercury, Selenium, Boron and Stronitum. Presently, I feed him a raw diet (variety of venison, duck, quail,turkey and chicken), raw veggies and whole cooked grain and some eggs. I give him Spirulina and Alga Calcarea, an organic vitamin supplement along with probiotics and fish oil. I believe the toxicity came from vaccinosis as I rescued him 2 years ago. They gave him the full gamut of vaccines when I got him. When I adopted him, he had a healthy looking stripe down his back but the rest of his hair was very thin. Since he was eating a diet of purina, I felt I could correct the problem with diet but the problems have escalated. Since I have had him in the last 2 years, he has had 1 rabies, 1 dose of steroid and 1 dose of topical flea medication. I would also like to mention, we live in a community where they like to spray "roundup" on the grounds. I don't know if this has any bearing on the itching problem. I am very interested in your thoughts on our problem. I look forward to getting him to a normal heathy state very soon. With Gratitude, Elaine Dame and Hansel

Dear Elaine,

You are doing a lot of good things. You might want to look at some of our products to help the skin. 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. Another supplement I use along with it is Omega 3,6,9. The OMEGA 3.6.9 is especially helpful for soothing from the inside which in turn helps improve itchy skin. This is in place of the fish oil. Two other supplements that you could get from a health food store are MSM and L-glutamine to reduce inflammation in the gut. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

If after a month of doing the above for a month and the response is slow, then I would also give a dose of homeopathic Thuja 30C at bedtime for few weeks in addition to continuing the other things.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
