Health Questions & Answers



My dog is 16 and lost his back right leg 4 years ago. He is 34 lbs and stays at that weight. He is losing his ability to walk on that leg. I have a PhD in health psy and researched pain management in dogs, an area sorely needing research. I found that amantadine may help so the vet put him on it. I see an improvement, then the brutal winter came and he has regressed. Is there anything else I can do for him. He is on a chondroitin glucosamine supplement, Metacam and Adequan. Is there anything else I can do for him. There is no dog rehab in the area. Do you think one of your products would help? Thank you, Tish

Dear Patricia,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and 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. I like to choose diet based upon Chinese food therapy. Where do you live and does your dog seek warm or cool places? What food and treats do you currently give?

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 also help energy move better through the body and reduce pain. Looking forward to your response.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
