My dog is having problems walking on her rear legs, until they warm up. She had them X-Rayed, and the joint looks fine? I hate to see her suffer when she gets up from a rest. She is only 2 and 2/3 years old. Our vet gave use Glucosemine 500mg and Green liped musseland MSM, but it is not working.  Do you have any ideas? -Ron-

Dear Ron,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the stiffness and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog. It contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX. In addition it is helpful to give Canine Probiotics with each meal, Omega 3,6,9, and vitamin C daily. (We carry the first two and the other one you can get at a health food store.) The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IONX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given for a synergistic response and faster healing.

Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. If you can gradually phase into a grain free diet that can be helpful too. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary.

Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
