Health Questions & Answers



I have a siberian husky. She is very healthy. She is also 13 years old. She never howled until about 2 months ago. We're not certain why. We still walk her almost daily. She has a huge fenced yard to play in and spend the majority of her time outside. She started howling at night which woke both us and the neighbors. We started bringing her inside at night. Now she howls during the day, too. There is no obvious issue. We're assuming this is arthritis because of her age. Does that sound correct? If so, what's the best medicine to give her? Thank you very much.

Dear Lee,

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. It would also be helpful to get some blood work done in case any new conditions are developing. You would at least have a base line. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
