Will Arthro-IonX provide any help with spinal stenosis in a Senior Greyhound? -Lucia-

Dear Lucia,

The homeopathics can have a positive effect depending upon the severity of the condition. I would start with Promaxol to reduce the pain and decrease inflammation. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog. It contains the stronger LM potencies then the Arthro-IonX. 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.) 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. Veterinary acupuncture can also be beneficial. It would be nice if you could find a veterinarian that employs both modalities.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
