Health Questions & Answers



Hello, Our 5 year old lab was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at 2 years old. She was prescribed Rimadyl and glucosamine and to lose weight. She has lost weight and the meds seemed to help some but we would rather she have something more natural and safer that rimadyl. We have a 50 acre farm and after running around awhile with our other dog and our boys, she really suffers with stiffness and weakness. She is better after a night of rest. Is this considered being in "crisis?" Money is tight and I want to make sure my purchase of Artho-IonX will help her and that I'm giving it as I should. Thank you for your time.

Dear Kathy,

You may use Arthro-IonX along with other medications or supplements. It is homeopathic in nature and so it will not negatively interact with other physical substances. You can use Rimadyl along with Arthro-IonX to provide comfort while healing is occurring. Healing takes more time than just suppressing symptoms. Arthro-IonX helps to stimulate healing. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving some nutritional supplements to accompany Arthro-IonX. The supplements I recommend are Canine Probiotics, MSM, Vitamin C, and Omega 3,6,9. Arthro-IonX will help the body to better utilize the nutrition for a synergistic response. I would also suggest a consultation with a veterinary chiropractor. Having everything in the best alignment using makes moving much improved. I don't think your dog is in crisis but there are things that can be done to improve the quality of life.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
