Health Questions & Answers



Hello. I've had my dog (pit/jack russell mix?) to 2 different vets for scattered bacterial growth down her sides and now on her back. The first said it was probably "just a staph infection". The second tested the growth and said it was "normal" bacteria that are found in the environment. They both agree that it's due to an underlying cause like allergies. I don't know what the underlying cause is, and she doesn't itch. If it is a skin allergy, though (doesn't seem to be - no redness or itching), would Derma-Ionx treat that? If not, would it do anything about the bacterial growth? hank you!

Dear Cheryl,

I would try DERMA-IONX to aid the allergies and skin. It can help strengthen the body to fight the infection. In addition PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 work well with it. Improving the gut flora is essential in dealing with allergies and fighting infection. Try to avoid giving water that contains chlorine or fluoride which is damaging to the good intestinal bacteria. Omega 3,6,9 can help reduce inflammation in the body.

I also recommend consulting with a veterinary chiropractor. That can help with allergies, too.

Please let us know how you do and we can offer you more suggestions based upon your dog's response.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
