DERMagic - has anyone had success with this? Vote for this post

Hi everyone.  I have been gleening a lot of new info over the last few weeks thanks to this forum and also the suggestion to join the Westie Ears to Tail Forum plus the Turmeric Users Group.

I started Finn on Turmeric (GP) in the weekend - he is not all that fussed on it and no noticeable results yet but we will perservere for a month on it before deciding on its benefits.  After that I will try the kefir.

Anyway I just come across a link to the Dermagic system which does sound like magic and too be honest it sounds almost too good to be true.  I am interested if anyone with a Westie has used it and if so their results.

Thanks so much for reading this - it is so nice to know that I have a group of down to earth Westie owners on the other end of the computer who can provide real testimonies of what works and what doesn't for them.

Kind regards
Anne and Finn

Will be interested to hear how you get on. Does it list the ingredients? Couldn't see it on the website on a quick glance.

I tried a product here in Australia (can't think of the name) it was a spray and meant to stop itching and supposedly natural but it didn't work will see if I can find the bottle. 

I use Petway Petcare Gentle Protein Shampoo with Aloe Vera & Baking Soda (gluten free) on Matilda (so does our groomer).

The Dermatologist told me that contrary to popular belief allergy dogs need to be washed more often than once a month, they should be washed once a week at least before the offending pollens etc have a chance to settle on their skins and I guess he's right but who has the time. I did it for awhile but it was so time consuming especially with 2 allergy does and working full time.

Hi Anne - My girl has food allergies only. We about drove ourselves crazy when all the itching first started for her, but we were lucky in that once we figure it out, it was pretty easy to manage. As long as we don't give her anything with wheat or corn in it, she's fine.

What saved us was working with a dermatologist (veterinarian) who understood Westies and allergies.

I'm so sorry Finn is having problems and I truly do hope you can get it sorted out. Bless you for caring and for keeping at it, for his sake.

Seems as though food allergies are much easier to control than airborne unfortunately both my girls were Atopic and that was not only expensive but never fully under control. I certainly costs me thousands of dollars each year in medications, food (they had sensitive stomachs too) etc and while I didn't begrudge spending it on them it was a time consuming and exhausting time for all of us over a 14 year time period. A lot of running around, experimenting. It's something I hope to never have to go thru again. I loved my girls to death.

I agree Diana, it is very expensive to treat
a dog with allergies.
I spent $10.000 on Iver in his last 7 years
but it was all well worth it.
I loved him very much.

Our Levi had allergies but I use a shampoo from the vet  and it sure helped a lot. He had sores all over specially on his belly and the  were the legs meet with the body. That shampoo and a cream did wonders. after that I only use Fromm Holistic dogfood with no grains and also treats . He is doing so well it is amazing. No more sores .I used a spray from the vet for a while in the beginning for itching and that worked also  for hot spots.
Thanks G-D we found the best food ever and they both love it.
The prices are way too high be carefull what you buy.
We never heard about those products before.
Sorry I would be very careful if I was you.
Hope your Finn soon be doing much better.
 Take care,
Moshe,Levi and Yoka

Thanks for your replys.  You are right - the prices are high but the advistising and even the name make it sound amazing.  I think I will give it a miss in the meantime.  We are in the last month of summer so things should start improving with Finn in the Fall.  Today it is going to be 30 degrees celcius which is very hot for my part of the world.  I have taken today off work so we can all go for a picnic lunch at the beach.  Hard to imagine on a day like this westies playing in the snow on the other side of the world :)

I've found from experience even the most natural things can have ingredients in them that can cause an issue. Take for example (it's a human product) natural goats milk hand cream. I read the ingredients, fragrance free etc but down the bottom it says something about lavender oil. Well the cream is nice on my hands but the minute I move my hands around the waft of lavender oil is overpowering. I have allergies and just can't use it. A goats milk conditioner I bought for one of my Westies has wheat in it so I had to throw that out. 

Hope Finn is feeling a bit better.
