Between 20% and 75% of veterinary consultations of dogs and cats in clinics and hospitals are believed to be directly related to skin problems. The main complaints reported by tutors during consultations are the symptoms of alopecia, hypotrichosis, pruritus, ulceration, scaling, vesicle and scabs formation, and the presence of skin masses, in which one dermatopathy is often associated with another. Chronic lesions are mainly observed in places where there is intense itching, which is the most desconfortable symptom to tutors, but which, on the other hand, is minimized by several drugs. The most commonly treatments used are highly effective immunomodulations such as glucocorticoids, but it brings by numerous adverse reactions such as polyuria, polyphagia, polydipsia, alopecia, obesity, pancreatitis, gastrointestinal ulcers, diabetes, and predisposition to infections. The aim of this paper is to show the effectiveness of treatment through ultra-diluted medications in chronic dog dermatopathy. After repertorization, the administration of Pulsatilla nigricans 30cH was recommended, and four drops were prescribed orally twice a day for 20 consecutive days, associated with Hystaminium 30cH, prescribed the same way, but for 30 days. One week after the beginning of homeopathies, the patient showed considerable improvement in the skin and after 30 days, 80% improvement in the itchy conditions, skin texture, local hyperemia and odor, as well as behavior and rostral physiognomy. suggesting good disposition of the patient.
