My dog is 15 1/2 and has arthritis in her spine and thorax. She clenches in her throat and is almost on the ground with her back legs when she stands to long. She has lost a lot of weight 15 lbs. and doesn't have much of an appetite anymore. Is there anything I can do to help her? The vet diagnosed her 5 months ago and told me to give her Ibuprofen and I give her 100 mg a day.  Susan

Dear Susan,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog. It contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX. Hopefully you can decrease the use of Ibuprofen which can cause bleeding and irritation in the stomach. 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.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
