Hello, My 5 yo GSD has a terrible rash she is eating pretty good but won't go outside and will just lay there this is unlike her. The vet don't know what is wrong with her they gave her all kinds of prendezones and skin rash pills but it's not going away. My question is how long do i need to use the Derma-IonX? is this something used for the rest of her life? or until the skin is cleared. Thank you for your help

Dear Patti,

It is hard to say how long you would need to use Derma-IonX since we don't know what is causing the skin condition. The goal is to heal the body from the inside outward so that you would not need to use Derma-IonX forever. 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 Canine probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, 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. If the body is warmer than normal a cooling diet according to Chinese food therapy would be beneficial. Cooling protein sources are fish and turkey. Beef is neutral. Chicken and lamb are warming. If your dog has a known allergy to a food avoid it even if it has the correct thermal qualities.

Defendex shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using these products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
