Health Questions & Answers



I have an 8 year old Labrador that had a skin condition. She seems to have continual dandruff and is always scratching. I have been told to change her present food from Davis Ranger Senior to James well be Loved with a high White fish oil content - is this correct or do I need some of your product? My Dog has now developed scabby sores and when I brush her they become red and sore; they then scab over and you often notice them when you brush or comb her coat. I've just had her jet bathed and groomed by a dog beautician who was the person who told me to change her food… I'm not sure what to do for the best as there are so many remedies out there. I'm not sure which is right for my dog!

Dear Alan,

Your dog's skin is very irritated. Derma-IonX is very helpful in reducing inflammation and stimulating healing. Being liquid and homeopathic in nature, it will act more quickly. You want to act quickly so that the skin doesn't become infected. I agree that a change to a fish-based dog food is a good idea, too. Generally, most dogs are not allergic to fish. You should also check to see what grain is in it. Some skin conditions can be irritated by certain grains. I would also give digestive enzymes and probiotics to reduce inflammation and improve digestion.

Please let us know how you progress and if there are any more questions that we can help you with.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
