On a holistic e mail list I receive there was mention of two Chinese Herbs that have done wonerders for dogs with Skin Alergies.   I am going to try one of them, however only available in the UK.   So hopefully it will work when she has her outbreak and I do not have to reply on the meds (roids) to help her cure the itchies.  I also talked to the holistic vet at my animal hospital and he said its def worth a try and is interested as well to see what happens.

Canine skin disorders
Marketed product: Phytopica (tm).
Phytopica (tm) is a natural three plant patented product has been developed specifically for dogs prone to skin allergies. Furthermore, clinical benefit has been demonstrated in placebo-controlled studies in canine skin allergies. Canine dermatological disorders are well recognised by veterinary practitioners to be a major problem in small animal practice, with an estimated 15% of the global dog population affected by skin conditions due to allergy (Source: Animal Pharm).

Maintenance of a healthy skin and coat and alleviation of itching are of major importance to canine general health and quality of life.

Mode of action
Phytopica(tm) is a natural plant based product clinically proven to promote healthy skin in dogs prone to skin allergies. The product combines the beneficial effects of three plants and offers a novel three-in-one approach to help maintain a healthy immune system, support normal white cell function and provide anti-oxidant benefits.

Progress to date
Phytopica(tm) was launched for the UK market on 31 March 2004 at a special symposium at the British Veterinary Dermatology Study Group's Spring meeting in Birmingham. Clinical trial results presented at the 5th World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology (WCVD) in Vienna at the end of August 2004 demonstrated significant improvement in canine atopic dermatitis. Phytopica(tm) is also palatable, well tolerated and has a good overall safety profile.

Phytopica (tm) is recognised by consultant veterinarians as a potential first line, premium priced product. Following the UK launch to registered veterinary dermatologists, the availability of Phytopica (tm) has been expanded to incorporate all veterinary practitioners in the UK. Phytopharm is now seeking global partners to market Phytopica (tm) in other territories.

Phytopica (tm) is marketed in the UK as a complementary pet food, and presented as a granulated extract that is simply sprinkled on food. Due to the product's palatability, canine compliance has been excellent, with over 97% compliance in clinical studies. The product is patented in the UK, Europe and the USA, with patents pending in other territories worldwide.

Heather - I'd be interested to see what happens.  

Lola's ears look awful.  I'm keeping up with the spray you gave me, they'll be fine for a week or so, then all of a sudden they're red, scratched and bleeding......but the inside is clean so I have no clue what's going on with her.

Keep us posted!

Selson Blue - the medicated dandruff shampoo.   Also the Tea Tree Paul Mitchell seemed to help somewhat too.

I will let you know how this works, I cannot believe I order a product from the Uk for my dog, but anything to get rid of the itchies!

Kiah doesn't scatch but if she ever does it would be nice to have something natural to use.

I've been lucky with mine, but if that works, I'll make a note of it, just in case :)
