Buy local.  Buy organic.
If you ate today, thank a farmer, hopefully a small, local farmer.

Remember the thousands & thousands of pets that died to give US a wake-up call about the safety of ALL food and products.

I didn't know it could be used a a treatment for dermatitis, but I do remember reading that it was a component in chemotherapy.  I think the 3rd link in purringfur's post talks about that.

someone posted information on safer alternatives to using chemicals to treat skin problems in dogs on this site. No need for chemicals unless the person feels this is the only way to treat their pet just cause the vet said so. They all want to make money off you too, they after all are in business, right? Do your research before just applying or letting anyone else apply chemicals to  your pet when there is a safer way to treat the skin condition. It might take more work on your part but peace of mind knowing your pets skin is  not absorbing any toxins thru it would be reward enough since we have all been thru a lot these past several months already.

Well said. I did indeed do alot of research and while I had to use meds for my very sick Westie rescue a few years ago. I now topically treat his atopic dermatitis with topical lotions not meds . I only give him a very low dose of steroids for his comfort.  I live in a very dry climate that has not been easy for the little guy. We went through a Derm. Vet. It was not cheap but worth it .  Knowing what is going on is half the battle .. Thanks, Mia/Nik
