I just ordered Arthro-IonX and Promaxol. After starting it, how long should I wait to start decreasing the Prednisone my dog is on for inflammation and pain? He is on 15 mg's daily and need to get away from it as liver numbers are awful now.

Dear Wende,

You should ask your veterinarian about starting the slow decreasing dosage schedule. If you find your dog is uncomfortable at a certain lower dose then go back to the former dose. Hopefully Promaxol will help you get to a lower dose of prednisone more easily.

What else are you giving your dog for medications, diet, treats, and supplements?

Best regards,

Dr. Char
