Hello Dr. Wilson,

I adopted a German Shepherd male (estimated age 4 - 6 years old) and he has been diagnosed with elbow dysplasia, and also arthritis in his spine. He has been limping more on his elbow even with a double dose of glucosamine supplements, and Previcox, etc. I was thinking about trying your product Promaxol but am confused when to use the Arthro-IonX – can both be given?? Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dear Mary Ellen,

Either product can be used in your situation. Promaxol is often used for acute pain because it contains the high potency LM remedies which make it very strong and effective. Arthro-IonX is for more moderate pain and helps to reduce pain and inflammation and stimulate healing of the joints. Either can be safely used with any other medications or supplements. I would suggest that you give a few other things that will help speed the healing process along. Give digestive enzymes with each meal, and probiotics and a high quality fish oil supplement daily. All together it is synergistic. Please let us know how you progress and if we can be of further help to you. It is important to keep him moving comfortably so that he doesn't lose muscle mass.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
