Could you give me a little more information? What product are you referring to? Please tell me more about your dogs age, sex, medical conditions, type of diet, treats, water, and other medications?

Response: I have two English Dogs, female is 1 yr 5mths, male 10 mths, health is good shots Up to date, both eat Diamond Dog food I am noticing small sores under coat in some Places, very small patches slowly coming out Not sure which product to use !!

Dr. Char: DERMA-IONX can be helpful for a variety of different skin conditions. DERMA-IONX is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aid the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

   Initially  I would give a half dose of  DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and  supper food.  After there are signs of  improvement  you can give a whole  dose once a day.  I would also give  Probiotics  to aid  digestion.  OMEGA 3,6,9  given orally  decreases  inflammation and aids the skin and coat.   

  The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine.  Chlorine is not good for the intestinal flora.  Diet can also influence the body.   Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. Please read the label to check what proteins are in your food.   When there are skin problems I usually choose a grain free  food  that uses fish or turkey as the protein since these are considered to be cooling for too much internal heat  according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral.   Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming and so I would avoid these until the coat is back to normal.    If your dog is allergic to a protein do not use it even it has the correct thermal property.
