Ever since our Newfie was poisoned by our landlord with chickweed chemical she hasn't been the same. We moved yet to another unknown problem to --contaminated oil tanks soil removal and more mold mildew. As much as I am on top of things she has been on cephalxin prednisone over year while at house which is only way to keep her at bay, just moved to Florida and she still has break outs chewing herself and bumps that turn to open sores sometimes and bleeds. She lost a lot of hair huge patches all over. Used white vinegar in bath which helps for a few days but back in tub again. At wits end. What would you differently than the very expense vets I had in North Jersey. Really desperate - Kimberley, it hurts me to see her like this and was it due to exposures can we grow out of this? Thank You.

Dear Kimberley,

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 itchiness and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. It can also help detoxify the body. The supplements I use along with it include probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. Probiotics are especially important when antibiotics and steroids have been used. Vetionx has these. From the health food store you can get MSM and vitamin C. DERMA-IONX can help with assimilation. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

For the dietary modifications you might want to try feeding cooling foods according to Chinese food therapy.

Fish and turkey are considered to be cooling. Chicken and lamb are warming and would best be avoided in the summer months or if you live in a warm climate. Of course if your dog has a food sensitivity do not give that food.

For shampooing I would try Zymox enzymatic shampoo and be sure to use non-chlorinated water.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
