    Dear Dr. Jeff:
    My dog, Jaime, is almost four years old. He has been biting at himself and scratching himself. He has chewed on himself to the point that he has raw, open sores on his legs. Last year the vet diagnosed him with flea allergy dermatitis and gave him a prednisolone shot and antibiotics. He’s now worse than ever, despite changing to premium food (he’s on Prairie Chicken and Rice right now). He also gets a bad odor only days after a bath, and he itches even immediately after a bath. I have tried giving him supplements such as a digestive enzyme, and ester-C; I was told to try giving him venison-based dog food, in case he’s allergic to chicken, and to limit supplementing his diet any further. Any ideas or suggestions? Thank you. crystallynn.

    Many ❗

    What else are you feeding and what other supplements have you tried (omega 3 or 6 fatty acids, antioxidants, zinc or trace minerals, etc.)? Any fresh or raw food? Often these skin symptoms are related to improper diet and other deficiencies.

    Do you indeed see any fleas? Has there been a skin scraping or fecal test for internal parasites?

    Any new cleaning products, wool rugs, recently painted areas, etc.?

    This type of itchiness is often related to an internal dysequilibrium that needs to be addressed homeopathically. Personally I would advise working with a vet homeopath before you do anything else. Go to [url]http://www.theavh.org[/url] for a referral.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
