Dear Dr. Wilson, My 6 year old dog Shepherd/Golden Retriever has hip dysplasia and has a hard time getting around. I want to know if you recommend Arthro-IonX? She is 140 lbs. She also has epilepsy and is on Potasium Bromide, Meloxicam and Phenobarbital. I would appreciate any help you can give me, and I am wondering why my Vet has not told me about this. Thank you in advance for your help. Regards, Maria

Dear Maria,

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. Arthro-IonX helps to stimulate healing. In the United States homeopathy is not usually taught as part of the regular program in veterinary school. Most veterinarians here who are interested in it study it after graduation. In Europe about half the veterinarians use homeopathy along with conventional medicine. 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.

If you can consult with a veterinary chiropractor it could be very helpful. I have had positive outcomes with chiropractic for seizures and mobility problems. If any subluxations are found the chiropractor can make an adjustment if necessary.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
