Health Questions & Answers



Vet has checked 11 yr old westie, taken Xrays, showing everything clear. Pressure on back, no problem. When pulled back leg, dog reacted with pain. Vet concluded arthritis. Tramadol didn't help. With Metacam seemed to help some. After two weeks, dog still humping around, can't raise tail to poop. Goes around humped up trying to poop, which she does quite often, but can't raise her tail. Seems like maybe bowl or back problem. What can you offer that might be helpful? Would greatly appreciate help.

Dear Ed,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog because it contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Artho-IonX. In addition it is helpful to give Canine Probiotics with each meal, Omega 3,6,9, MSM, and vitamin C daily. (We carry the first two and the other two you can get at a health food store.) 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. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. From the symptoms you describe a chiropractic adjustment is usually helpful.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
