My 14year old gsd has hip dysplasia and have been on rimidil for many years till the vet put her on steroids which have made her gain weight and made her worse. What would you recommend? Is Arthro-IonX available in UK? Do you think it would help her? Many thanks.

Dear Peter,

 Arthro-IonX has helped many dogs with hip pain.  It can be safely used concurrently with other medications.  Arthro-IonX is without side-effects so it is safer to continue with the Arthro-IonX and decrease the other medications gradually as she begins to become comfortable.  Healing takes time but the homeopathic ingredients should provide improvement in symptoms while the oligotherapeutic base helps stimulate the enzyme systems involved with healing.   In addition I suggest that you do some other things along with Arthro-IonX for a synergistic effect.  Give digestive enzymes with each meal, and a probiotic and a fish oil supplement daily.  Arthro-IonX will help the body better utilize the other supplements for a faster response.  It is very helpful for older pets.<br /><br />

 Please let us know how you progress or if you have any further questions.<br /><br />

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
