My 10 month old Rottie has developed Hip Dypslasia almost overnight it seems. I can hear the friction noise in his hips as I leash walk him . He favors his right rear leg. He is fed 4 cups a day of Fromms large breed puppy supplemented with Sojos or Steela and Chewys . I would appreciate your feed back on options other than putting him down or watching a loved one suffer . Thank You Jeff

Dear Jeff,

I would try Promaxol to help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog because 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.) 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. To choose a food I would like a little more information from you. Where do you live? Does your dog seek warm places in the sunshine or cool places on the tile?

The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. This is very important for a growing dog. The ball of the femur needs to be as close as possible to the hip socket to stimulate better joint formation. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
