Health Questions & Answers



My dog was recently diagnosed with this with x rays, she favors one hind leg in the morning, once up and moving she seems fine though activity level has decreased. Also it seem that cold, damp weather affects her. She is currently on Metacam, a pain med from the vet. I'm also giving her once a day glucosamine treats. Is there any of your products that would help in rebuilding or at least halting this problem. 70# German Shepherd female, 6 yrs old.

Dear Mike,

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. What do you currently feed her? The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary.

What climate do you live in and does she prefer warm or cool places? Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
