I have recently noticed that my dog is biting at himself, almost like he is trying to get at fleas, and when he does that I have also noticed that there are scab spots on him. I haven't changed his food, nor has his routined changed. What do you think could be going on? Heather

Dear Heather,

There can be flea bites that get itchy later so you don't see any fleas because they have moved on. Sometimes the skin can have an infection. 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 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.

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
