My 7.5 yr old German Shepherd is limping and hobbling about. She has extremely severe arthritis as well as bad deprived joint fluid in both her back legs. She is presently getting shots of Adequan/Legend at the Vets office. She is taking Rimadyl as well. Will this medication help her alleviate the pain and make her feel better? Please advise ASAP as we are heart-brokened over her limpness! Thank you

Dear Louise,

I would start with PROMAXOL. It helps to decrease pain, inflammation, and stiffness and stimulate healing. Initially I would give a half dose with breakfast and again at supper. After improvement is seen you can decrease to a whole dose once daily. For longer term management you can switch to ARTHRO-IONX. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving nutritional supplements to accompany the homeopathic. I would also use PROBIOTICS, MSM, Vitamin C, and OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation and strengthen the body. What type of food and water are you giving? Does she tend to be warm or cool? Where do you live ?

I would also suggest an evaluation by a veterinary chiropractor. If a correction is needed, that can help with better movement. Acupuncture is also helpful. Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
