Health Questions & Answers



My poor Akita has so many skin problems, under his arms he has big sores that are bleeding and crusty, all over his body he has sores, they start as crust, dandruff, get red and then bleed at times. I am tired of taking him to the vet to put him on cortisone and antibiotics. I need something for him that helps with seborrhea or yeast infections. He is such a good dog, and I feel so bad for him. I don't know what to do. I soak him in coconut oil to just help with scabs, I have tried every product on the market. Please help me.

Dear Angela,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aids 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 the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing skin and improves coat quality.

Diet can also influence the skin. What do you feed your dog? What kind of water do you give?

If you need to bathe your dog you might want to try DEFENDEX shampoo because it contains essential oils which are very effective and soothing.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you along the way.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
