My 11 year old rottie, boxer, pit mix rescue has seizures and a low thyroid so she takes soloxine. She's getting stiffer and her range of motion is more limited due to arthritis in her back hips but when I give her Rimadyl or meloxicam she has a seizure usually within 12-18 hours after. She's not on any anti-seizure meds, other than I give her petalive ease sure and use doc ackermans epilepsy formula. Please help me relieve some of her pain. Thank you

Dear Jessica,

I would try PROMAXOL to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. PROMAXOL would be a good choice for your dog because it contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to ARTHRO-IONX. In addition it is helpful to give Probiotics with each meal, Omega 3,6,9, MSM, and vitamin C daily. (We carry the first two and the other two you can get at a health food store.) There is another supplement that I would consider because of her breed and history and that is Geri-Form, a choline/ B vitamin product which can nourish the nerves. The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IONX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given for a synergistic response and faster healing. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. If you can gradually phase into a grain free diet that can be helpful too.

The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. It is usually helpful for older dogs.

Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
