Can I give both Arthro-ionx and Promaxol to my dog? I am currently giving him Arthro-ionx, but sometimes it looks like he has a bit of pain, still. I am thinking the addition of Promaxol will help. Thanks

You can use both products. I would give a half dose of ARTHRO-IONX on the breakfast and supper food. If there are times you want to offer more pain relief you can give one to two half doses of PROMAXOL between meals. What kind of food, supplements, water, and treats do you give? What medical conditions does your dog have? What medications do you use?

Response-Customer: I have a six year 92 lb mixed breed who has what looks like arthritis in his hips. I have not had xrays done at this point. He eats Pet Guard Lifespan dog food. I have been giving him Arthro-ionx and the Omega 3/6/9 capsules (which his dog food contains, as well). He also takes Dasuquin daily. His treats are cookies (like Cloud Star brand), and his water is tap water. We have been cutting down on treats and monitoring his food servings as the vet suggests he lose about 6 lbs. He is on no other medications- I am trying to go a more natural route.

Reply-Dr. Wilson: I would suggest you give filtered water. Is there Chlorine in the water? I would also give PROBIOTICS to improve digestion and assimilation. Does your dog tend to seek warm or cool places?

Response-Customer: I bet there is chlorine in the water. I can give filtered water. My dog has heavy dark fur, so he gets hot easily outside and then seeks the cool tiles to lie on. Otherwise, he will lie on his dog bed or the rug. So I guess there are no extremes in that matter. Thanks so much for the advice.

Reply-Dr. Wilson: There are different kinds of arthritis. They can be affected by heat or cold. Diet can influence this. According to Chinese food therapy Chicken and lamb are warming foods and so would not be the best choice especially in the warmer months if the body already has heat and inflammation. Fish and turkey are cooling. Beef is neutral. However one would not use a protein if the dog is allergic to it.

    I would also give PROBIOTICS to help restore the intestinal flora that can be damaged by chlorine.
