Good Morning & Happy Friday, We've been using Arthro-IonX since Feb. 16. Over the course of 3 months we gradually increased dosage to 1 tsp, 2 times/day. Recently we reduced to 3/4 tsp, 2 times/day since we were past the 90 day full effect timetable. However, after 10 days noted a return of symptoms and are now back to the double dose. My George is Aussie/Gr Pyr mix, 4 1/2 yrs old, has hip dysplasia from birth, 120 lbs. He also receives supplements: MSM, Glucosamine Sulfate, Wild Salmon Oil, Calcium Ascorbate, Colostrum. Kibble is Orijen Six Fish with I and Love and You canned Beef Booyah (grain free) as a topper. My question: would switching to Promaxol be a better option? Is Promaxol a stronger pain reliever that Ortho-Ionx? Would we be able to reduce his dosage with Promaxol? Are their benefits to the Arthro-IonX formulation over Promaxol for hip dysplasia? His last checkup the vet noted pain in his lower back and he didn't like the lifting the tail test. He still has trembling in other legs even with the Arthro-IonX. Thank you for your help, Kimble & George

Dear Kimble,

I would try one 1/2 teaspoon dose of PROMAXOL and two 1/2 teaspoon doses of ARTHRO-IONX at different times of the day. I would add the ARTHRO-IONX on the meals and give the PROMAXOL at other times. Frequency can be an important factor in using homeopathy. If you need to you can give another 1/2 teaspoon of PROMAXOL. PROMAXOL is different from ARTHRO-IONX because it has the addition of the LM Potency of each individual ingredient.

I would seek a consultation with a veterinary chiropractor or acupuncturist. Improving spinal and hip alignment helps with better movement. It is often beneficial when there is weakness in the rear end. If that doesn't resolve it please let me know.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
