Health Questions & Answers



Our two year old Boston Terrier appeared to have gotten into something last night because she started rubbing against her pillow. Then I noticed bumps under her right front arm. Today the bumps are on her outer hind leg. At first I thought she had gotten into ants. We live in country and she puts everything in her mouth.

Dear Dawn,

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 that is already too warm. Beef is neutral. In the meantime before you can get any of these products you could see your veterinarian to keep this from getting any worse.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
