Health Questions & Answers



My Schnauzer is a 14 year old show Champion. He can barely stand now and only three weeks ago he was able to walk a half mile. He does not want to eat his regular food which is Eukanuba lamb and rice. We just received our order of Arthro-IonX and the Promaxol. He weighs 43 lbs and is alert and mostly happy. He is in obvious pain when upright. What would be the best approach to utilizing your products to obtain the maximum results quickly?

Dear Edward,

I would give a half dose of PROMAXOL in the morning with breakfast and a half dose again on the supper food. When you see some improvement you may substitute the morning dose with ARTHRO-IONX. The supplements I use along with it include probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. Both are important for good health.

I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

For the dietary modifications you might want to try feeding cooling foods according to Chinese food therapy.

Fish and turkey are considered to be cooling. Chicken and lamb are warming and would best be avoided in the summer month. Of course if your dog has a food sensitivity do not give that food. It is usually best to gradually phase in the new food over a week's time.

It might also be wise to make sure that the heart is still doing well and that cardiac insufficieny is not contributing to the reluctance to stand and walk.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
