Health Questions & Answers



My 2/12 yr old havanese seffers from skin allergies, red bumps, yellow blisters that scab over, biting himself raw and itches nonstop. When my vet puts him on a low dose steroid and antibiotic for a few weeks everything clears up. When that time frame is up and he is off meds, everything starts over. Another vet visit, bill and steroids. What would be a good everyday med I can give him that is safe? I cannot afford an allergy test. Thank you Ron

Dear Ron,

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. Besides being taken orally DERMA-IONX can also be sprayed on some of the lesions. 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.

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
