Will defendex shampoo work for dermodex mites or should I try something else??

For Demodectic mange, working on the immune system is very important. Derma-IonX helps stimulate the immune system. The IonX oligotherapeutic mineral base helps the body to better assimilate other dietary nutrients that are given. The homeopathic ingredients in Derma-IonX also help to reduce inflammation, which helps the skin to heal. Additionally, Derma-IonX can be sprayed on the skin topically to give relief. It can be used topically between baths to provide continued relief. Used in conjunction with our shampoo, Defendex, which is non-toxic but effective against mites, one can interrupt the mite cycle. We usually suggest that the pet be bathed weekly for 4 -6 weeks or until there are negative skin scrapings.

The dietary supplements I recommend along with Derma-IonX work together to improve body vitality. I suggest digestive enzymes with meals, probiotics, MSM, and fish oil. In addition, make sure that your veterinarian performs a fecal analysis and checks for heartworms. We want to make sure that no other parasites are draining nutrients and energy from your pet. Also, be sure to offer pure fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride.

Please let us know how you do or if you have any other questions.

Best regards,
Dr. Char
