I need a simple way to help my little Shih Tzu stop licking her paws. I ordered some Vet+Best hot spot foam, the smell was so bad it made me sick on my stomach. I have a hard time giving her medicine. Please help me and her. Thank you Peggy

Dear Peggy,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for allergic 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? What kind of water do you give?

If you need to bathe your dog you might want to try DEFENDEX shampoo because it contains essential oils which are very effective and soothing.

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

Best regards,

Dr. Char
