My dog collapsed on a walk, help!

We have been using Vetionx for the past 2-3 years. Our Choc Lab takes daily 2tsp AthroIonx, 2 tsp H2OIonx, Glucosamin, E, C, B-complex, and Traumeel. Today after his daily short very slow walk around the block, his back legs collapsed and appeared to freeze stiff for about 5 minutes. I moved him inside and calmed him down and then he seemed OK. What should I do if this happens again in the future, and is there anything I can do to help now? -Terry-

Can I use other shampoos or dips with Defendex?

My dog is getting a bath/dip this morning for mange. I just discovered your natural mange shampoo and wondered if you would recommend using it also even though he is getting treated by the vet.

Shih Tzu with Neck Problem

Hello, I have a four and a half year old male Shih Tzu who started exhibiting symptoms of pain and stiffness about 5 days ago, walking around very slowly with not much interest in anything. At first, I thought he pulled a muscle in his back or had a pinched nerve from his usual antics during playtime with my other two Shih Tzus. However, I began noticing that he would not look to his left and if he did, he quickly jerked his head back to the right. I should point out that he has been eating and drinking normally and his potty habits have also been normal. He just doesn't want to do anything and he has been just laying on his bed. He does have muscle twitching on his left side below his neck, shoulder area. I took him to the vet yesterday and she did some various manipulations on him and she concluded that he did either pinch a nerve in his neck, or possibly strained a muscle. Her recommendation was rest and Metacam. The little guy had a rough night last night and for the first time, at around midnight, he woke up panting and was crying in pain. Until then, he had not been vocal with the pain. It took us a few minutes to calm him down and make him comfortable until he finally went back to sleep. He started the meds yesterday afternoon and he was feeling better so I don't know if he did too much although it did not seem so to me. Yesterday, I did order a bottle of the Promaxol from VETiONX based on all the great reviews about it. It should be here by Thursday. Anyway, is there anything else I should be doing for him other than encouraging rest? Thanks!

Animal Arthritis Remedies: Cosequin vs. Dasuquin?

Dr. Char, I am hoping you can help to point me in the right direction.  I have a friend who's dog is showing terrible signs of arthritis in his back legs and she is hoping to start him on a supplement to help, yet the data available seems to be complex and conflicting. Many seem to be harmful to the internal organs such as the kidney and liver. Have you heard of the supplements consequin or dasuquin? Would you recommend either or? Or have you heard of something else that might help.... this family is very open to any ideas! Thank-you for your time! Hope you are doing well! Jessica

Is there a natural product I can use long-term to help my dog walk?

My 11 year old dog recently slipped and hurt her back leg and is limping for about a week. The vet examined her and thought she pulled a leg musle and also gave her Deramaxx for a 14 day treatment. She is now walking with a slight limp. Is there a natural product I can use for her long term to help her with her walking since she did have trouble with her back legs getting up, only, not walking, but now she has trouble doing both.

Hello Dr. Char, My yellow lab Loomis has hip surgery at 6 months old to repair both hips. he is now 14 and appears to be experiencing some discomfort from his hip area as he is not as active and refuses to go up/down steps. I know he is an older dog but I am looking to help him and releive some of his pain so he can gain some of his quality of life back. What can I expect to see as a result if I start him on the Arthro-Ionix product you offer? Thank you in advance for your time, Scott

My schnauzer twisted his knee

I have a 8 yr old 60lb schnauzer. He recently twisted his knee. He does put weight on it but limps a lot. My vet has given him an Adequan shot and has him take a Previcox pill daily. Will this help his knee or would he be better with the Arthro-Ionx?

My Australian Shepherds are starting to have arthritis and hip problems

I have a 11 yr old Australian Shepherd (who is a little over over weight & she is now on Purina One healthy weight now ) who has trouble getting up and walking and my Vet put her on Tramadol 1x a day and Rimadyl 75 mg a day. She chews(when I 'm not looking) on one front (ankle) joint and one rear ankle joint to the point of callused over and no hair now and she limps - I also give her NutriVet hip & Joint Level 2 everyday according to directions. She is finally getting some what better after almost a month now (on meds)- she has been on the Nutri Vet for over a yr but not the higher level. Is your product Arthro-ionx something I should think about using maybe instead of the Nutri Vet and maybe a possibility of her weaning off the Rx meds at some point? I also have a mini aussie that will be 5 yrs old in Feb that was just xrayed and diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia - She has had 3 litters of pups and 2 pup total had HD out of her last 2 litters , So I am no longer breeding..she was just started on the Nutri Vet Level 2 and put on weight control dog food too- I would like to know if your product would be good for her and if this is something I should be giving my younger aussies - I have a 8 mth old toy aussie that was just xrayed last month and she has one hip that has a problem the other looks good..can she have this product? after 20 yrs of raising aussies and no health problems until now I am at a loss!! thank you for your time and patience I have a total of 9 aussies ages 8 mths to 14 years old...
