Health Questions & Answers



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-

Dear Tony and Doris,

This is not a usual side effect. If your dog was experiencing more pain before, his appetite could have been diminished. If your dog is more active now then more calories will be needed to sustain the activity.

It would be good to have her checked. Please let us know if they find anything. I am glad she is able to manage the steps better now.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
