Our lab-pit mix is about 75 lbs. and has hip problems. While playing vigorously he seemed to pull his hip out. Since then, he will not walk on this leg, what would be the first plan to help him? I'm thinking x-rays?

Dear Zona,

I would get an X-ray and/ or find a veterinary chiropractor. The chiropractor would be the best person to get things in the right position for proper function. You might ask the chiropractor if an X-ray would be helpful to him or her. I would also 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. 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.) If the ligament has been stretched the Ligaplex 1 by Standard Process would also be beneficial. 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.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
