I have a 13 yr old Jack Russell, he has had arthritis for several years now. He takes Metacam,but it still doesn't stop all the pain. Last week he started limping worse, he seems to be extremely sore and tender in his hips and back legs. How much of this product should he take, and how long should it take before seeing a difference on Arthro-IonX. Thank you in advance, Paula

Dear Paula,

You may use ARTHRO-IONX along with other medications or supplements so it is OK to use with Metacam. It is homeopathic in nature and so it will not negatively interact with other physical substances. You will need to give it at a different time than the medication so that the body has some time to focus on the remedy. Initially I would give 1/4 teaspoon ARTHRO-IONX on the breakfast food and 1/4 teaspoon on the supper food. After improvement is seen you can give 1/2 teaspoon once daily on one of the meals. It may be a few days to a few weeks before seeing a significant response. But with natural products one should allow three months to determine the full effect.

I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to help protect the gut and reduce inflammation; then maybe you will be able to decrease the amount of Metacam you are giving.

Please let us know how you do.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
