My female chihuahua 14 months old has been in this condition since 4 months old. She just sleeps under the covers all of the time. I have taken her to 4 vets. She had her on Prednisone and antibiotics. I weaned her off of them because it made her eat a drink too much. She did get alert and playfull. She has never had a active puppy life or heat. She a break out of pustules and now has no hair and crusty peeling skin. I was told to get her Rhus tox 30C for the itching. The vet said she had pemphigus fol. I think it would be best to treat her homeopathically. Is there any way to help her with being Lethargic? Where can i find BI08 & CLO-3 nutriments (similar products)A homeopath said this would benefit her. Found it under Under essentials for all.She was a nasty person to deal with so i don't know what else to give my dog. She is 3.7 pounds She also has puppy paws from licking them constantly and i don't want them to get infected.

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. It seems that the cleansing effect of the product could be helpful to your dog and should eventually help restore energy. 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. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition. I do not know where you can obtain those other homeopathic products that you mentioned. I have not run across them. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
