Health Questions & Answers



I have a JR terrier is has developed some type of skin allergy or disorder. His skin is red and irritated on his belly, legs and feet. He will break out in wells and scratches or licks until all the hair is gone and the skin in raw. I have taken him to the vet 3 different times and they keep telling me it is something he is coming in contact with, but we have had him a year and this is the first time he has had this problem. I have used sprays, pills, lotions and nothing seems to help. I think it's some type of yeast or bacterial infection. His skin is looking elephant like and he has even lost hair around his eyes and has matter in his eyes all the time. What is your opinion?

It seems that this has gone on so long that there could a secondary bacterial infection now as well. It could have started out as an allergy. You might want to look at two of our products, Derma-IonX and Defendex shampoo 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 digestive enzymes, probiotics, MSM, vitamin C, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. It can also be used topically if there are troublesome spots on the skin. 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. Strengthening the immune system is important.

Defendex shampoo, which was designed to fight against fleas and mites, also washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both 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.
