Providing Comfort For Your Pet
Host, Gerry Barnaby- Hello! Barnaby here with another VETiONX Moment where we get to “Ask the Vet,” the holistic vet since 1987. Hey, Dr. Char.
Health Coach, Dr. Char Wilson, DVM- Hello!
Barnaby- Hello! So, here we go. We’re talking about Promaxol—a lot of questions about this. One person writes in to ask, “What impact can I expect with Promaxol?”
Dr. Char- Well, generally with Promaxol, the animal feels better. People comment that the animal seems to be moving better. Most people will be buying Promaxol because there is some type of lameness, stiffness, that kind of thing. So, generally, they notice the animal seems to be more comfortable. Oftentimes, if the animal is not in pain or discomfort, then they will start to eat a little better, they’ll start to play a little bit more, so a lot of positive signs.
Barnaby- That’s good! Well, here’s an interesting question because it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with it—but maybe it does—and that is, “Will Promaxol interfere with my pet’s flea medication?”
Dr. Char- No, it will not. So, it is homeopathic in nature and will not…so it doesn’t have, like, large molecules that would interact in some fashion with the other medication, so it’s perfectly safe.
Barnaby- Can the same be said for vaccinations?
Dr. Char- And the same would hold true for vaccinations.
Barnaby- And, you know, I think when a pet is very young, we’re always hesitant to give it any sort of medications because we think, “Wow, the dosages might be problematic,” but is there a specific age that a pet should wait until it reaches before it starts taking Promaxol?
Dr. Char- Well, no, not really. There, you know, the age is not as important as what the symptoms are. So, it’s based on symptomology and not age. There are directions on the label that help people to determine what the dosage should be. It’s based on body weight, so, only a little bit is needed.
Barnaby- Excellent stuff right there! You get to ask Dr. Char the questions and get the answers. How great is that? You can do it right here on VETiONX.com, because we do have a link where you can check in with the Doc, but again, folks, always realize if you have an emergency at home with your pet, don’t wait for the reply from Dr. Char…rather get to your local vet as quickly as you can. Thanks for joining us!
