Is there a product(s) that I can use to treat a lick granuloma on my Bernese Mtn dog to heal and stop him from licking?

Dear Jay,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aids the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

Initially I would give a half dose of DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and supper food. After there are signs of improvement you can give a whole dose once a day. I would also give Probiotics to aid the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing skin and improves coat quality.

Diet can also influence the skin. What do you feed your dog?

I would also have a veterinary chiropractor check your dog. A small amount of pressure on the nerves can cause tingling and excessive licking. Do you work your dog? Has he had any musculo-skeletal injuries? Is he anxious? Is he your only pet? Does he like everyone in the the household?

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you along the way.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
