PROMAXOL is ARTHRO-IONX plus the LM potencies of each of the individual ingredients. If a condition is severe I start with PROMAXOL and then switch over to ARTHRO-IONX for maintenance. For either one, initially I give a half dose twice daily on the breakfast and supper meals. If you need to you can give one or two additional half doses as needed. With improvement I switch to a whole dose once a day. It is OK if you want to start with ARTHRO-IONX. If after using ARTHRO-IONX for a while, and you still need more support then you could add in PROMAXOL.

  I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to strengthen the body and reduce  inflammation. These are available from Vetionx as well.   What kind of food, supplements, and water  are you giving?  These factors make a difference for certain conditions.

I have a 19 year old terrier mix of relatively good health all his life. Arthritis in his shoulders and some nerve issues in spine. He is on gabapentin low dose and some other long term holistic pain supplements, vet prescribed fish oil and dasaquin. He eats a varied diet of high quality dry and wet foods and high quality well water all his life. He recently has shown 1.8 on his creatines, so I will not put him on rimadyl.

I would also give PROBIOTICS because your dog is on prescription medication which tends to alter normal gut flora. PROBIOTICS can help improve digestion and thus reduce stress on the liver. With arthritis the liver is often congested.

    According to Chinese food therapy if your dog is warm seeking cool places then a cooling diet is more beneficial.  If a dog is cool and seeks warm places a warming diet is better. Cooling proteins are fish and turkey.  Beef is neutral.  Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming.  However if your dog is allergic to a certain protein do not give it.  I would select a grain free diet of the appropriate protein.
