Health Questions & Answers



i have a Pomeranian mix, most likely a puppy mill dog, she is 5 yrs old. I saw an x-ray of her condition and it was frightening to see what discomfort she is in. Is there anything else I can do for her besides the removal of her ball of the femor or hip replacement? Thank you Rose

Dear Rose,

There are a few other options you can try before considering surgery. 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, 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. Acupuncture can be helpful as well.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
