Dear Donna,

I would start with PROMAXOL. It helps to decrease pain, inflammation, and stimulates 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?

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. These approaches should be explored before considering surgery. Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,
