HOW TO PLACE AN ORDER

The DERMagic System

DERMagic Works.

The DERMagic System is a revolutionary four-step process designed specifically for pets with aggressive skin conditions and owners who have tried everything, including numerous veterinary visits, topical and injected steroids and antibiotics, with little to no relief. Our formulations combine the healing qualities of natural ingredients like organic whole-leaf aloe vera gel, vitamin E, organic shea butter, and soothing essential oils, with fast-acting florets of sulfur, which attack microbes and fungi and eradicate infection, relieving painful itching and redness. The DERMagic System works, and we guarantee it, when used as directed.  The individual elements of the DERMagic system are:  Dermagic Skin Rescue Lotion,  Dermagic Hot Spot Salve, Dermagic Shampoo, Dermagic Conditioner, Dermagic Skin Rescue Shampoo Bar & Dermagic Cell Restoration Cream.
 

Why Not Steroids?

Corticosteroid drugs, called "steroids" for short, are potent chemical substances that can reduce swelling and inflammation quickly. 

Common corticosteroid drugs used to treat skin issues in dogs include cortisone, hydrocortisone, prednisolone and prednisone. These compounds reduce itching by reducing inflammation. In other words, these drugs treat the symptom of itching, but can do nothing about the underlying cause of the itch. 

Unfortunately, they also affect every organ in the body.

Prednisone is the most potent anti - inflammatory and anti-itch steroid and is often used for treating allergies in dogs.  It is usually reserved for dogs with moderate to severe skin allergies, or skin diseases that are difficult to diagnose. 

Unfortunately, these medications are often over-prescribed without a positive diagnosis and without careful monitoring, and the pet owner can be unaware of the potential seriousness of the side-effects.

 Whether a dog has hot spots or mange or allergies, often it’s the secondary infections that cause the worst itching.  If steroids are given to treat the symptoms of itching, the bacterial or fungal secondary infections will be given a boost, and will get much worse very quickly.  The reason for this is that cortisones depress lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, making it easier for bacterial infections to occur and then to proliferate unchecked. 

In other words, steroids can compromise, or crash, your pet’s natural immune system. 

When this happens, your dog will lose hair and his skin will become black with a terrible odor and insane itching. Traditional medicine can no longer help him when the disease reaches this stage, and your vet is likely to recommend euthanasia.

Even holistic, naturopathic veterinarians may recommend treatment with small amounts of corticosteroids to give some affected pets relief during the flea season. However, these treatments may be dangerous to your pet if prolonged and only offer temporary relief of symptoms at best.

DERMagic is safe, free from corticosteroids and is immediately effective at relieving itch, fighting fungal and bacterial infestations and promoting healing of affected areas.

Dog Skin Problems?

Pet allergies, and especially dog skin allergies, are very common. Food, carpeting, blankets, dust mites, mold spores in the air, pollen, plastic food dishes, furniture stuffing and ornamental plants all have the potential to trigger allergies in dogs.

In some instances, a highly allergic pet may have several allergies at once. The severity of allergies, which can be seasonal or year round, varies greatly.

The most common symptom from an allergy is intense itching (known as pruritus), which may be localized at spots or might be systemic, covering the pet's entire body.

Contact Allergies.
Fleas are a common source of contact allergies. Other common contact allergens include grasses, hay, plants, and trees. Toxins and chemicals (pesticides, carpet cleaners, etc.) provide additional potential sources for dog skin problems for both outdoor and indoor pets. For a dog that is seldom exposed to fleas, a single flea bite can inflame a dog's skin for several days.

Food Allergies
are generally due to ingredients in your pet's food or treats. Symptoms of food allergies include itching and/or noticeable digestive trouble. A food allergy can be a reaction to almost any ingredient such as soy, wheat, yeast, or beef. Food allergies are so common that pet food manufacturers have invested millions of dollars in research, development and promotion of diets to help with food allergies in dogs.

Inhalant Allergies
. With inhalants, pollen is the most common type of allergen, but cigarette smoke, air fresheners, smog, or other airborne pollutants can also be problematic.

Allergic Dermatitis  (Dog skin problems caused by allergies)
Regardless of what causes the problem, this condition is common, it can last a lifetime, it is a challenge to diagnose, and once identified it can be resistant to attempts at treatment. Dogs with inhalant dermatitis will lick and chew at their paws and scratch their face, eyelids and ears. Others may erupt in hot spots or their skin may redden and be intensely itchy all over.

Sometimes there's a bad smell associated with allergic dermatitis called seborrhea, often the result of a secondary infection. Seborrhea is a skin disorder in which the outer layers of the skin, the sebaceous glands, and the follicles are over-productive, leading to dull fur, dry flakiness, and smelly oiliness. This sebum, which becomes rancid, is the source of the odor. Frequent bathing, especially with a harsh shampoo, can irritate the skin and make this condition much worse.


The list of symptoms is endless, but severe itching is the common ailment.
Diagnosis of allergies is difficult, time-consuming, very costly, and often inconclusive.  As a result, allergies are seldom properly diagnosed, and instead, the symptoms are treated in hopes of relieving the pet’s discomfort.

These treatments may include topical medications, soothing baths, ointments and sprays, oral antihistamines, or steroids. Caution:  If you are sent home with a prescription for cortisone, or your dog has been given “a cortisone shot to stop the itching”, your dog may ultimately be worse off than before if the true diagnosis happens to be an unrecognized case of Sarcoptic mites

A key point to remember is this:  There is no cure for allergies!  What we can do is avoid the food, material or parasite that is triggering the immune response, and treat both the symptoms and the resulting infections to restore the skin to good health.

Dog itching - Dog Rashes - Dog Dandruff

One of the most common medical complaints in dogs is the notorious “Hot Spot” -- or dog rashes that are also called “acute moist dermatitis.”

There are dozens of causes of hot spots on dogs, including allergies, parasites, or just licking and chewing, but the common factor is infection, whether bacterial, fungal, or yeast. And hot spots can appear anywhere on the body: hind leg, feet, rump area, neck, etc.

The bottom line for your dog is that there is an infection and intense itching, regardless of how it got that way.

Sometimes hot spots on dogs seem to appear out of thin air. For example, many dogs are very sensitive to simple lawn grasses. These animals are physically and nutritionally normal, but show signs of inflamed skin and hair loss.

Or, a skin lesion can occur as a result of moisture on the skin surface from rain, pond or lake water. Minute scratches on the skin from, for example, a clipper blade, may trigger other cases.

Moist eczema
is one example of a hot spot type. If the coat is dense or allowed to become matted, moisture on the skin may remain long enough to allow superficial bacteria to reproduce and create an infection. Some cases of moist eczema will spread very rapidly and require rather aggressive therapy to correct.

Dog Rashes and Skin Infections
(Infectious Dermatitis)


Bacterial, fungal and yeast organisms are notoriously obnoxious skin and coat pathogens. They can cause skin infections for your dog, itching, rashes, dog dandruff, and other problems in otherwise healthy dogs.

Bacterial dermatitis
rarely occurs spontaneously. Normal healthy skin has tremendous numbers of a variety of bacteria present all the time. If something upsets the normal balance, such as antibiotics eliminating one or two types, the remaining types proliferate. Any contact with grass, plastic, an abrasion or moisture, or parasitic invasion can bring down the skin’s defensive barriers and opportunistic bacteria then proliferate.

Fungal infections
first appear as one or more small areas of hair loss that may be reddened or inflamed. As infection progresses, crusts may form on the area of hair loss, the patches increase in number and size, and large portions of skin may become involved.

Yeast
, a type of fungus, can irritate an already diseased skin surface. Yeast infections typically create greasy, odorous and inflamed skin in affected dogs. Symptoms may include blackening of the skin, dry flaky skin or greasy type grit on the skin. As the condition worsens, a bad yeasty smell or odor may accompany this, and the dog will experience severe itching, leading to endless biting, chewing and hair loss.

DERMagic products kill bacteria, yeast and most types of fungus, fast, and are the first line of defense against hot spots. They work fast ...guaranteed.

DERMagic Flea Shampoo Bar 3.5 oz
 
DERMagic Organic Diatomaceous Earth Flea Bar
Insect-Repelling Proprietary Essential Oil Blend Combines with the Natural Flea Killing Power of Diatomaceous Earth

Got Fleas? If you have seen fleas or flea specks on your dog, get rid of them the natural, organic, non-toxic way. Diatomaceous Earth is a fine white powder made by tiny (microscopic) water creatures that make silica-based shells for themselves. These tiny shells fall to the bottom of lakes and oceans over millions of years, accumulating in massive white deposits that are then mined and crushed to a fine powder.

Deadly to any insect or larvae, each tiny “shell” is very sharp, like razor blades to insects, but completely harmless to all animals, fish, birds, both externally and internally.

Combining this element with a proprietary blend of essential oils, bathing with the DERMagic Flea Bar kills fleas and provides an anti-microbial, calming and therapeutic effect for dogs with both dry and oily skin. And, it is completely safe, using no toxins, preservatives, chemical insecticides, sulfates or other irritants that can aggravate sensitive skin.

INGREDIENTS:

Saponified Vegetable Oils (Coconut Oil*, Olive Oil*, Castor Oil*, Sunflower Oil*, Jojoba Oil*, Rice Bran Oil, Cocoa Butter), Vitamin E,  Cedarwood EO, Dried Lemongrass* , Lemongrass EO, Citronella EO, Lavandin EO, Pennyroyal EO, Tea Tree EO, Peppermint EO, Lemongrass EO, Diatomaceous Earth, Aloe Vera*.      *organic ingredient
