We believe our dogs have mites (mange) and we have also been infected from them. We have treated the house, yard, been to the vet with the dogs, to the doctor for us. We were given presc. creams for us which have worked, but it has now come back and the dogs were diagnosed with "dry skin" and allergies. They are rubbing themselves raw. Will the Defendex mange shampoo help with mange and what are the steps we will need to take?

Dear Kim,

You might want to look at two of our products, Derma-IonX and Defendex shampoo to help heal the skin. Derma-IonX, which is an oral homeopathic product, stimulates the enzyme systems in the body, which reduces itching and inflammation, promotes healing of the skin, and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include digestive enzymes, probiotics, MSM, vitamin C, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. It can also be used topically if there are troublesome spots on the skin. 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 a grain free diet for a while.

Defendex shampoo, which was designed to fight against fleas and mites, also washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition. Directions are included with the bottle. After lathering you massage it into the coat of the animal for about 10 minutes and then rinse. You can also use it in the laundry and on bedding. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
