Dog has Lymes, will Colloidal Silver help?

My 3 yr old Siba Inu mix contracted Lymes at about 5 months. She loves to run and we are in the woods alot.  At the time I gave her a nutritional product developed by my vet at the time that brought the titers down to nil. But then about 1 1/2 yrs later she developed a limp from playing hard (one yr ago).  In the past year, I have had her bloods done and gave her doxi but only for 3 weeks as her stomach had a hard time even with Previcid and she took Ritalin (or some kind of anti-inflamatory). We were thinking she had injured herself possibly, but she was OK for a time then ran too hard and limped again. This week I had her bloods done again and yesterday she began limping on the other front leg after running some. So now her bloods show a chronic lymes and the vet wants to put her on doxi for a month. I know this will tear up her stomach again. I was wondering if colloidal silver will treat the chronic lymes. I am also thinking about wormwood, the AIM Program and also the homeopathic product your site promotes for arthritis. My vet also told me about a powerful chemical collar I can have her wear when she is in the woods that will strongly repel ticks while she has it on. I am to take it off and store it when not in use. Do you know of the safety of this collar. I have always had a problem with the Advantage type products. Thanks you!

Dachshund has itchy skin, please help?

My mini dachshund is 3 years old and she has itcy skin.  I've tried maaawash shampo, now aloween oatmeal shampoo, conditioner, and confortis flea tablet once a month.  But she chews her front feet and her skin is very dry, like dandruff on her back, her belly is hot, now the vet (which by the way is new to us we've just moved here) told me to give her phenergan 10mg twice a day.  This makes her sleepy, but has not stopped the problem during her waking hours, people have told me epsom salts, cider vinegar or baking soda in cold water for a bath can you suggest anything for her skin.  It is not broken or bleeding or has sores.  -Lyn-

Dog is excessively hungry since taking Arthro-Ionx, is this normal?

Our dog is experiencing excess hunger since taking Arthro-IonX. Is this one of the side effects?  The dog is an 8 year old female Shih Tzu. We noticed about 6 months ago she was having trouble getting up a small set of steps (2) from the garage to the utility room and getting progressively worse. I saw your ad for VETIONX and ordered one bottle to see how she would react. We have been adding it to her water for about 5 days. and It seemed to increase her appetite. Our next step is to have her checked for diabetes. Her problem of getting up and down the steps is gone and she seems to be moving with out pain. We just can't get her appetite under control.  -Tony and Doris-

Dog Suffering with Arthritis

My 12 yo cavalier(who acts very young!) recently began with shaky back legs and hips sliding out on wood floors.  No change in appetite!   Had patellar surgery as a puppy. (My dx is hip arthritis.) Should I start him on Promaxol and then switch to Arthro-IonX? I have used homeopathic remedies for myself and my dogs in the past with great results, and really don't want to put him on traditional pharmaceuticals. Thank-you very much.  -Ellen-

Dog with Back Leg Problems

Hi there my dogs Razor (15 years old) and has been having problem with his back legs.  About 5 month ago, I thought I was going to lose him I believe it had to do with a snack I had given him.  But he made it through a month of him not being able to eat.  He then got very weak and that is when this started with his legs.  The vet took xrays and said that he is favoring his left ankle.  Which product would be the best for me to order?  Thank You -Gina-

German Shepherd on Rimadyl

I've had my dog one Rimadyl for a few years now to help with her pain, she now suffers from stiffness. I tried the Artho-IonX for 2/3 weeks per the instructions on the bottle and haven't seen a change in her at all and she now cries when working the steps. I've spoken to her vet and they think she should stay on the pain meds she was on and add in vitamins to help..but they are not willing to help me use 1800petmeds to help with the cost..any suggestions? -David-

Basset Hound & Back Issue

My Basset Hound is 12. On Friday he lost function in his hind legs. Xray shows calcium between 5 vertebrae and the vet feels this is causing the nerve issue with the legs. He was in so much pain. They've been treating with steroids and pain medication through today and there's very little improvement in leg function. We are so torn about whether he needs to be put to sleep or not. The Vet feels that if there were going to be improvement we would have started seeing it by now. Obviously heart-broken and just researching possible alternative solutions. A friend gave me your website to look at the products. Is there anything that might help? -Sandy-

Dog is Experiencing Itchy Skin

I have been giving my beagle Derma-IonX twice a day (3/4 tsp) for 2 weeks. The itching on his belly and his back around the tail area hasn't ceased at all. This has been going on for a long time..he's had prednisone, diflucan, benedryl, and now cetrizine. I had him bathed at the vet's office the other day. This is costing me more than I can afford..I am a sr citizen on a low income. My husband has mild dementia and was just transferred from the hospital to a nursing facility for rehab because of congestive heart failure. The dog's itching is so stressful to me because I don't know what else to do. What  brand of food and flavor do you feed your dog? Shiloh's dry food is Rachael Ray both the chicken and the beef mix. Moist food: I cook it myself: Chicken breast, some beef at times, peas, carrots, some rice.  I cool it, remove most of the congealed fat, then use food processor to grind it. Do you give any supplements?  I give him a multi vitamin, brewer's yeast, joint supplement has he supposedly has a genetic joint problem on his rear leg, pro biotic, Dr's order: 100 mg fish oil, some tumeric sprinkled on his moist food. Has your dog any fleas recently?  I comb Shiloh daily with a fine tooth comb. Have only seen 1 or 2 fleas. The black dirt I find is not bloody, it is dirt. I do not use flea stuff all the time. I sometimes use diatamaceous earth. How old is your dog ?  Shiloh will be 5 years old in Feb. 2013. He is a rescue dog. Do you have any suggestions for me, if so, I'd appreciate. Thank you, -Linda-

Dog Might Have Mites, HELP!?

First Thank you for what you do!! My 12 week 1.5 lb Yorkie is ripping and scabbing his skin. The reason I think it is mites is both my husband and I are itching. For a week I have small spots like little bites. He is chewing on his legs and scratching his hind quarters and loosing his hair. I ordered the combo but wondered if I should still use a pesticide? I don't want to hurt him. If I don't use a pesticide how do I get rid of them from everywhere? From what I understand re-infestation can keep happening. He actually yipes hurting himself scratching, it breaks my heart please help. Thank you again, Karen

Dog with Severe Hip Dysplasia

I have a 10 mo. old Golden Retreiver with severe Hip Dysplasia.  The ball is only about 10% in the socket. I have her on Tramadol 50 mg. and Carprofen 75mg.  She is doing well--running, jumping, playing. Can I keep her on these long term or are other options? My vet advises me to put her down but I am not willing to do that. She is in training as a therapy dog and doing very well. She is a loveable sweetheart. Your advice please!! I am devastated. She is my life. Thank you. -Janine-
