Health Questions & Answers



I have recently adopted an 11 month old shar pei dog. He has developed an oozing yellow pussy eye, he's constantly scatching at his skin resulting in hair loss and sores and has now started to freak out and refuse to go for walks on his lead as though terrified of something. When he breaks out of the yard he doesnt go further than a couple of houses away. There is some question to poor treatment and abuse before I got him. I cant afford to take him to the vet for a few more weeks is there some home remedies or treatments I can do for him until then? I have stopped feeding him raw meat the last few days and have been giving him bread which I've stopped today. Any assistance you can offer would be much appreciated. His temperment is gorgeous considering all that he's going through. Its just come onto spring also and flowers are blooming around us everywhere. Kind regards Melissa

Dear Melissa,

You might want to look at some of our products to help 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 PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9. Together with DERMA-IONX it produces a synergistic effect. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. As for diet, if your dog is not allergic to these protein sources you might try a fish or turkey based grain free food since these are considered cooling according to Chinese food therapy. You would want to avoid chicken or lamb which are warming for the skin if it is already too warm. Beef is neutral. Avoid treats that have artificial colorings.

If you need to bathe him DEFENDEX shampoo is very soothing. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions or to let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
