What human medicine can I give my dog for arthritis pain? He is 12 and due to the day and time I can't get the vet.

Dear Lori,

It is not good to give human medications to pets. It is more difficult to get dosages right. I would suggest trying a safer approach such as the homeopathics ARTHRO-IONX or PROMAXOL. They can decrease pain and inflammation without risking gastric inflammation or liver complications. It is easy to dose because it is liquid and so the dose can be adjusted easily for the size of the pet. Initially I give a half dose twice daily on the meals. Once improvement is seen I switch to a whole dose once a day. I also like to give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6 ,9 to improve digestion and reduce inflammation.

I hope your dog feels better soon.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
