We have a 12 year old lab that is having problems with his hips. He is 130 lbs and now can't get up on his own. We can see the hip has rotated some. Will this product help at this point? Thank You.

Dear Debra,

I would start with PROMAXOL. It helps to decrease pain, inflammation, and stiffness and stimulate healing. Initially I would give a half dose with breakfast and again at supper. After improvement is seen you can decrease to a whole dose once daily. For longer term management you can switch to ARTHRO-IONX. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving nutritional supplements to accompany the homeopathic. I would also use PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation and strengthen the body. What type of food and water are you giving? Where do you live?

I would also suggest an evaluation by a veterinary chiropractor. If a correction is needed, that can help with better movement. Acupuncture is also helpful. You need to address this quickly since it is important that your dog maintain mobility. Getting a harness with handles is also helpful in allowing you to help your dog rise and move without straining your back.

Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,
