Our 9.5 year old Labrador has been a paw licker his whole life, he has granuloma's on the tops of both of his front paws. Recently, he has been having a "break-out" in-between his toes/pads on the under-side of his feet. In an effort to soothe this he has been to the vet, had a course of antihistamines and we have started him on a diet including more omega3 and fatty acids to help improve his skin irritation. It's a milky substance mixed in with his dry food at dinner time. He has now started dropping weight, and taking hours to eat his food with and without the suppliment. we have had a battery of tests done with the vet and can find no cause (feacal, urine, blood-panel) and his exercise time involves runs/walks 4-5 days a week. We have changed his food for 2 week periods but cannot get him to eat without it taking him 2 hours. What else can we try?

Dear Alexandra,

You might want to look at some of our products to help return balance to the body. 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 probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and Omega 3,6,9. Together with DERMA-IONX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. You may also spray DERMA-IONX on any itchy areas. I would also suggest that you give 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.

I would also suggest a consultation with a veterinary chiropractor. Proper spinal alignment is important in enabling the body to heal. Because of the granulomas I am suspicious there could have been longstanding pressure on a nerve in the neck area.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
