Took my mutt [because I dont know his breed:)] to the vet for xrays today because he was having trouble getting up and walking after copious amounts of running yesterday. Vet diagnosed with Degenerative Disk on L13 and Dysplasia. Prescribed Ultram for 7-10 days and wants to see him back. He is 7 years old and means so much to us, I am trying to find natural methods to help him live more comfortably. Will this product help? Can you give me some pointers in dealing with this disease? I've never had an animal that has suffered like this. My heart is broken. Thank you for your help.

Dear Brooke,

PROMAXOL or ARTHRO-IONX could be helpful. I would choose PROMAXOL because it also contains the LM potencies of all the individual ingredients that are in each product. Try to give the homeopathic at a time away from the other medications so the body has time to respond to it before encountering another substance. Initially I would give a half dose two to four times daily as needed. After improvement you can switch to a whole dose once daily. In addition I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 which would also be beneficial for reducing inflammation and improving assimilation of nutrients. What kind of food and water do you give? This can influence the situation, too.

I would also consult with a veterinary acupuncturist. Acupuncture can be very effective for disc problems.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
