Health Questions & Answers



My German Shepherd is 10 and half rescue I have had for 9 years.  He has very bad hips (he is on meloxicam tramadol and ad equip).   What can I give him for support of joints?  Also he is anxious and often times won't settle if people are over or he is at someone's house.   What can I give for over all anxiety?  Lastly, he is getting old and I believe has cognitive dysfunction.   Are there supplements you would recommend for this? Thanks you -Denise-

Dear Denise, I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and stiffness. 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, MSM, and vitamin C daily. (We carry the first two and the other two you can get at a health food store.) I would also give a choline/B vitamin supplement called Geri-Form. 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. To further address the anxiety I would give Chill Out Chews which you can use daily for a while, giving at a separate time away from Promaxol. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions. Best wishes, Dr. Char
