DERMA-IONX can be helpful for allergies. (Skin, ears, and anal glands respond to allergies.) DERMA-IONX is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aid the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

   Initially  I would give a half dose of  DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and  supper food.  After there are signs of  improvement  you can give a whole  dose once a day.  I would also give  Probiotics  to aid  digestion.  OMEGA 3,6,9 given orally  decreases  inflammation.

Vitamin C can have an antihistamine effect.

  The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine.  Chlorine is not good for the intestinal flora.  Diet can also influence the body.   Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. Please read the label to check what proteins are in your food.   When there are allergies, usually I choose a grain free  food  that uses fish or turkey as the protein since these are considered to be cooling for too much internal heat  according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral.   Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming and so I avoid these especially

in the summer. If your dog is allergic to a protein do not use it even it has the correct thermal property. I tend to use cooling or neutral foods during the summer and warming foods during the cold months for my healthy pets.

   Sometimes the allergy process can be started by one flea bite.   Check the skin and coat using a flea comb. You will be looking for any

dark specks which are flea debris. A this time of the year allergies to grass and weeds start to peak. Also watch for any signs of infection. Moist skin can give rise to infection. You might also look at DEFENDEX shampoo if you are able to bathe your dog to soothe and clean the skin.
