Health Questions & Answers



I use a special oatmeal based shampoo from my Vet because my Border Collie will chew all the hair off her back legs and paws due to dry skin allergy. I also spray her with hydrocortisone spray. I was looking at skin products and wondering which one would be better for her The Defendex or Derma-IonX.

Thank you for your concern in my inquire.

Dear Kelly,

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. What do currently feed and give as treats?

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. If I had to pick only one product to start with I would choose DERMA-IONX. Looking forward to your reply.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
