My cat is 5 years old. Since 6 months old he developed these itchy skin lesions on his back hind legs and sides. I have seen numerous vets, spent thousands of dollars. I have tried steroid shots, atopica and prednisone along with other treatments. I have no idea how to help him. He is a happy cat but the quality of his life isn't good. I almost want to put him down just cause I love him and I can't seem to help. What do you recommend? I have tried a natural remedy, before but I don't remember what it was and that didn't work either. Patti

Dear Patti,

You might want to look at some of our products 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 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 cat 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 is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. However only try bathing your cat if you can do it safely.

Also bring in a stool sample to be checked for parasites. I have found tapeworms can contribute to poor skin.

Using these products can help to improve a difficult condition.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
