Health Questions & Answers



Good evening, I have a four year old female Lab. She is approximately 100 pounds. We are currently trying different types of weight management food to take some of her weight off but have been unsuccessful. We now are making our own food with chicken, carrots, peas, zucchini, yellow squash and sweet potatoes. We are starting to see a difference in her weight. We starting doing this because of her having trouble with her mobility. We haven't had her x-rayed but feel she might have hip dysplasia. Finally, my question is what type of results are you seeing with Arthro-ionx? And, at close to hundred pounds do you think this would be a product to help her? Thank you for your time.

Dear Judy,

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 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 some nutritional supplements to accompany the homeopathic. I would use MSM, probiotics and Omega 3,6,9,

Are you adding a calcium or mineral supplement to the diet?

I would also suggest an evaluation by a veterinary chiropractor. If a correction is needed, that can help with better movement. If she can move more because she is more comfortable that will help her to lose weight.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
