My toy poodle/ maltese mix has used Previcox at times for pain. Since there can be long term effects I'm looking for something I can give her when she has hurt herself but not as bad as once before when she was put on steroid shots for three days. I gave her 1/2 of a 57 mg previcox yesterday which helped but today she is slow moving as if it still is bothering her. Help.

Dear Jerry,

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. In addition it is helpful to give Canine Probiotics with each meal and Omega 3,6,9 daily. 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
