My 14 year old lab is now diabetic and on Rimadyl. And now has Cataract. If I use Arthro-Ionx and I stop the Rimadyl. If you have any other suggestion please let me no. I feel very bad about the Cataracts. Loves to run for his tennis ball but cant do that anymore. very sad. Thank you, Donna Lucku

Dear Donna,

You may use both ARTHRO-IONX and Rimadyl together, but I would try to phase out the Rimadyl as soon as possible since some labs have had severe side effects to Rimadyl. You should talk to your veterinarian about decreasing the dosage or you could ask for a different NSAID. It is best to give the homeopathic at a different time away from the NSAID. Initially I split the dose of ARTHRO-IONX and give a half dose twice daily on the breakfast and supper meals. You can give 1- 2 extra half doses if needed.

What type of food, water, and supplements do you give your dog? Veterinary chiropractic and acupuncture can also be beneficial for both conditions. Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
