I have a dog that constantly chews has sores everywhere from allergies mainly flea allergies I have spent hundreds and hundreds on trying to fix him from changing foods to flea prevention I just dont know what to do anymore .... other than take him to the dermatologist he has what they call I guess dermatitis along with yeast on the skin. I have even thought about trying the sulfur shampoo from petedge. I am sceptical about buying products because we have tried so many do you have any suggestions if you dont think this will help

Dear Christina,

I would stop the flea prevention on your older dog but continue it with the other dogs. Just keep checking him for signs of fleas. The added chemicals on him is probably more negative than positive for him. For the allergies I would use DERMA-IONX orally and it can also be sprayed on small lesions on the skin. I would split the dose giving a half dose on the breakfast and supper food. According to Chinese food therapy cooling foods are better for the pet if the body is quite warm. Cooling foods are fish and turkey. Beef is neutral. Chicken and lamb are warming. Do not use a food that your dog is sensitive to. If your water contains chlorine or fluoride please only use filtered water for drinking and bathing. In addition I use PROBIOTICS to help restore the intestinal flora and OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation and aid healing.

To reduce the skin infection I would use Zymox enzymatic shampoo. If the ears are sore I would also use Zymox otic.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
