I have a 11 year old Maltese male dog he has been losing a lot of his hair for the past two years. He has been tested for everything came up with thyroid problem so put on thyroid medicine. That has been almost two years and still not getting much of his hair back. He lost a lot of weight and was on Blue Wilderness can dog food that was not doing any good so took him off of that and now cook chicken and steak for him twice a day. He is beginning to gain a little weight now but still loosing hair. I need help Thank you

Dear Dale,

You might want to look at some of our products to help improve the coat. DERMA-IONX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which promotes healing of the skin and coat and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. Together with DERMA-IONX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. 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.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
