Health Questions & Answers



Hi I brought my 4 year old tortishell cat, who does not like to be held, to the vet a few months ago, she had bloodwork, it came out good, no problems with health however, she is very itchy, and gets furballs sometimes but doesn't throw up. Also she has some scabs on skin, would this product help her? Because I do not want to give her any steroids or unnatural stuff. I might need to maybe also change her diet to grain free, since she eats fancy feast and friskies canned food, she does eat "Blue" cat food dry for sensitive stomach since the vet said she has a sensitive stomach because her tongue sometimes sticks out, and after she eats she is like kneeling down but not really sitting, so I need your help. She isn't easy to administer medicine to, so I would like to use this product on her fur to spray. Is that good too, thanks for your help.

Dear Shelly,

DERMA-IONX has been helpful in feline dermatitis. As for dosing the DERMA-IONX, I prefer to give a half dose onto some canned food twice daily at breakfast and supper. I also give probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9. If your water contains chlorine, give filtered water instead.

I would try a different food. According to Chinese food therapy, chicken is considered to be warming and so is not the best choice for skin that is already warm. I would try a grain free fish or turkey based food to see if that helps.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
