Our dog is on Thyroid chewable tablets 2x a day 0.8 mgs, Tramadol 50mgs 2x a day and Previcox 227mg 1/2 1x's a day and gets an Adequan shot once a month. Tucker is about 13 yrs old, and we got him from the pound.  He has always been strong built, weighs 72lbs, but doesn't lose weight and we don't think any thing is working.  Would really like your advice, thank you -Betty-

Dear Betty,

You may use Arthro-IonX along with other medications or supplements. It is homeopathic in nature and so it will not negatively interact with other physical substances. You can use your current medications along with Arthro-IonX to provide comfort while healing is occurring. Healing takes more time than just suppressing symptoms. Arthro-IonX helps to stimulate healing. As symptoms improve you can ask your veterinarian about reducing the dosage of the drugs. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving some nutritional supplements to accompany Arthro-IonX. The supplements I recommend are Canine Probiotics, MSM, Vitamin C, and Omega 3,6,9. Arthro-IonX will help the body to better utilize the nutrition for a synergistic response. I also recommend veterinary chiropractic. It can help improve the endocrine system and movement. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions. I can offer more suggestions depending upon the results that you get.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
