Should I dilute or apply full strength with spray bottle? I have 14 y.o. lab/rot/husky/newfoundland mix with horrible skin...flaking and peeling skin; no drainage from skin areas; constantly has that "wet dog" smell. ! I love this guy soooo much. All this started when I changed foods...have now started lamb&rice food. Thank you

Dear Natalie,

Unless the skin is extremely sensitive one does not need to dilute Derma-IonX before adding it to the spray bottle.

I would suggest feeding a different food rather than lamb and rice. In Chinese food therapy lamb is considered to be a warming food. When there is flaking that is a sign of excess heat in the body. Choosing a cooling food that the pet is not allergic to would be a better choice. Fish or turkey are listed as cooling protein sources. What kind of food had you been feeding before and after the problem started??

Best regards,

Dr. Char
