The Derma-ionx works very well. I cannot shampoo (my kitty won't allow it) She's now eating grain free hard food and fish/turkey. After a time when I stop the Derma-ionx her she gets the skin condition all over again. I had hoped not to go to a vet and test her because it can be very expensive. Should I treat her for a longer period of time along with a supplement. As mentioned, the Derma-ionx really does work, but Fluffy might need fish oil in her food plus a supplement. Please advise me. Thank you. Karen Smith

I would continue longer with DERMA-IONX along with giving PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9. It takes a while to heal the gut and re-establish the flora there. Check your ingredient list on the packages of everything that your cat gets including treats. Is there anything you don't recognize? Is there carrageenan in it? Do you give filtered water?

Response: Hi Dr.Char W.. Thank you so much for your response. I always give them filtered water. They don't get treats. They eat Fancy Feast (turkey/seafood), and Rachel Rays hard food (seafood) I will check for carrageenan. Is that bad for them? I will order the above mentioned from you.

Dr. Char: Is the dry food, Rachael Ray Zero grain food for cats Whitefish and Potato? I am glad you are giving good water.

Response: Hi Dr. Wilson. I know it is O Grain, fish, but not sure if it is potato and white fish. Is that the best? Now, ironically, today I had to get her small regular Salmon. They didn't have her O Grain, but I will get the other over the weekend. I hope this doesn't reverse their progress because they have been eating grain free. Will still order the vitamins, etc.

Dr. Char: The whitefish and potato should be good. I hope the food change won't disrupt your progress.
