my lab is suffering from hip Dysplasia I have tried laser therapy which seemed to have helped at first but now it seems the same as it was in the beginning she is now on tramadol for pain but seems to be getting worse, now she has had her blood work done and her liver count(I think) is 330 doc says to keep an eye they want to do more test to see what's wrong she is 13 years old also it seems that she has a touch of dementia I can look in her eyes and there is nothing there. then I look again after a little time has past, my dog is looking at me and wants to play...acting like a 2 year old. Can you and your medicine really help I just want my dog back for a while longer, if not then I want her comfortable and happy.

Dear Charlie,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxolwould 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. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions. I am hoping you will be able to ask your veterinarian about reducing the dosage of Tramadol when you see improvement.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
