We have a 3 year old short legged Jack Russell. She is regularly de-flead, but she scratches her belly quite a lot. I think it may be from when she runs through the field, because she is low to the ground. Her belly sometimes turns brown in color. I have tried using tea tree cream, which seems to soothe it short term. Is there anything else I can use to give her permanent relief?

Many thanks in advance

Dear Jo,

Since you believe the itchiness is related to the contact with weeds in the field I would rinse her off with non-chlorinated water after a run in the field. You could also limit the number of times she is allowed access to the field. Our product Derma-IonX is also helpful for symptoms of itchiness and can be used both internally and topically to reduce irritation. You should use it daily to get the situation under control and then you can decrease the amount or use as necessary when allergens are worse. Derma-IonX helps to cleanse the cells and aids cellular hydration providing relief to irritated skin.

Please let us know how you do and feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
