My cat has arthritis. the vet has me giving her cosequin supplement. wondering if I can give her Arthro-iONX with that. or someone else suggested I give her Promaxol instead. So now Im confused haha what would you suggest? my cat is on the older side (14) We didn't even know she had arthritis until recently but the vet said it was pretty severe. I don't want to overwhelm her system but I can't stand the thought of her being in pain either. your advice would be greatly appreciated

PROMAXOL is ARTHRO-IONX plus the LM potencies of each of the individual ingredients. If a condition is severe I start with PROMAXOL and then switch over to ARTHRO-IONX for maintenance. For either one, initially I give 10 drops twice daily on the breakfast and supper meals. If you need to you can give another 10 drops as needed. With improvement I switch to one dose daily. It is OK that you start with ARTHRO-IONX. If after using ARTHRO-IONX for a while and you still need more support then you could add in PROMAXOL.

  I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to strengthen the body and reduce  inflammation.  What kind of food, supplements, and water  are you giving?  These factors make a difference in arthritis.

    Looking forward to your reply  regarding the above questions.

Thank you for the information. I have 5 animals so feeding time can be a three ring circus. I have 2 cats. The older one eats science diet k/d formula. Timmy (arthritic cat) eats tiki cat or the k/d. It's next to impossible to keep the food separate Other than the cosequin they are not at this time getting any other supplements. I have tried them in the past but the cats have refused to eat them. But I will give the ones you suggested a try.

Response: The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine. Chlorine is not good for the intestinal flora. Diet can also influence the body. Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. I would choose a grain free food that uses fish or turkey as the protein since these are considered to be cooling for too much internal heat according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral. Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming and so I avoid these especially in the summer. If your cat is allergic to a protein do not use it even it has the correct thermal property. I tend to use cooling or neutral foods during the summer and warming foods during the cold months for my healthy pets.
