Health Questions & Answers



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-

Dear Sandy,

I have seen dogs that were paralyzed respond favorably to veterinary chiropractic and acupuncture. I hope you can find someone in your area. If you are lucky you might find a veterinarian that uses both modalities. Please try to get an appointment as soon as possible.

In addition, I would give Promaxol to decrease pain and inflammation and stimulate healing. I would also give enzymes with and in between meals. You can get Wobenzyme from the health food store. I would also try our Omega 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
