Our 5 year old 118lb Golden was diagnosed with hip dysplasia in November, he was given Rimadyl for pain and after a couple of days he became toxic from Rimadyl. If affected his liver and he was in the vet hospital for several days and went through a week of getting IV fluids to flush his system. His liver levels are still higher than normal but are much better. He is in a lot of pain and both of his hind legs are lame. He cannot take any of the NSAIDS so we are giving him aspirin for pain but it does not help. Does your product have any affect on the liver?

Dear Brenda,

Promaxol and Arthro-IonX do not burden the liver like NSAIDS do. 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 Canine 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.) 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. Acupuncture can also be helpful.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
