Hi, my question is about product safety and effectiveness for a 3 year old, 14 lb, Japanese Chin with a herniated disk. 1. Is the product effective for herniated disk? I don't just want to manage pain, I want something that will help his condition and prevent flair ups. In what way would the product help a herniated disk? 2. Dog is on 2nd round of Tramadol and Rovera. Is it safe to give this product with these medications? Is the product safe for daily long term use? Thank you

Dear Lakshmi,

I would try PROMAXOL to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. PROMAXOL would be a good choice for your dog. It contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to ARTHRO-IONX.It is also safe to use either in conjunction with other medications.

In addition it is helpful to give digestive enzymes with each meal, PROBIOTICS, and MSM. 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 is also very beneficial for disc disease.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
