DERMA-IONX has been helpful for feline skin problems . As for dosing the DERMA-IONX, I prefer to give 10 drops onto some canned food twice daily at breakfast and supper. I also give probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9 to improve digestion and reduce inflammation. These three products can help improve skin and coat. If your water contains chlorine, give filtered water instead. According to Chinese food therapy I would choose a cooling food such as fish or turkey. I would look for a grain free version. If you know that your cat is allergic to a protein do not use it even if it has the right thermal property.

  I would also suggest  that your cat be checked for internal parasites (with a stool sample)  if it hasn't been done recently.  Also check the coat with a flea comb to check for fleas or dark debris.  If you find anything please  let us know  or if you have any other questions.
