The Use of HEALx Sunshine Factor for Treatment of a Canine with Allergies

Kirsten Love, DVM



A 6-year-old spayed female therapy dog that had suffered from allergies for several years was presented for chronic atopy and secondary pyoderma on the abdomen. Numerous medications and therapies had been tried with no lasting success. The dog was started on Sunshine Factor (0.1-0.3 ml per lb body weight q24h). The owner was very pleased at the 1 month update because the hot spots, infected skin odor and pruritis had resolved completely. The most amazing response was that the dog needed its first grooming appointment in years because its hair had resumed growing. If the dog stops taking the Sunshine Factor, the itching and sores return in less than a week.

The Use of HEALx Booster in the
Treatment of a Cocker Spaniel
with a

History of Chronic Skin Problems

Ariana Finkelstein, DVM

A 15-year-old neutered male cocker spaniel had a history of chronic skin problems (e.g., moist dermatitis, superficial and deep pyoderma including MRSA diagnosed by culture and sensitivity) and recurrent urinary tract infections. Over the previous 3 years, the dog had periodically been treated with cephalexin, clindamycin, enrofloxacin and doxycycline in addition to topical sprays, bathing and essential fatty acid supplementation. The dog also had a history of glaucoma and inflamed keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS); cataracts had been removed several years prior. At the time of presentation, the dog was receiving 3 types of eye drops and 1 ocular ointment daily as well as essential fatty acids for the skin and glucosamine for its joints.
   HEALx Booster was begun q24h while all other medication protocols remained unchanged. After 6 weeks, all antibiotic treatment was discontinued This was the first time in almost 3 years that he was able to be antibiotic free for more than a 2-week period. Antibiotics were restarted 4 months later for a 2-week period of time. Additional antibiotic regimens have been kept to a minimum and MRSA has not been isolated again to date. No additional urinary tract infections have been reported since Booster was started. Thus, there has been a good resolution of the clinical signs.

   Booster is easy to administer, as the dog seems to accept the taste of it.

The scar tissue on its lower back was surgically debrided; however, the animal’s owner didn’t see much healing following this therapy. Later, HEALx Soother Plus® cream was applied topically to the burned area q24h. The owner remarked how the skin seemed to be healing faster in the first week after application.
