Health Questions & Answers



Hi, I am looking to purchase a suitable homeopathic therapy treatment for my 10 year old golden retriever who is displaying early signs of hip dysplasia. He is currently on veterinary prescribed nutraceuticals (Synoquin EFA) with a noticeable improvement but he still has the odd 'bad day,' mainly post excessive exercise. I'm looking to provide some additional support, preferably staying away from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (POM-V's) at such an early age. He is also currently on a well balanced senior dog food (James Wellbeloved Senior) which contains glucosamine, chondroitin and essential fatty acids. Do you have any products for sale in which you could recommend; if a prescription is required that can also be arranged as I'm currently working in the UK as a veterinary nurse and can request a prescription from a colleague. Many Thanks

Dear Jack,

I would try ARTHRO-IONX to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. 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 probably 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. Proper spinal alignment can help reduce stress on the hips. You do not need a prescription to purchase the Vetionx products since none require having blood work done before starting.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
