My dog is a 6 year old blue heeler/rot mix, he weights 63 lbs. I noticed that he had a limp in his right rear leg back in May. I took him to the doctor on the 13th of May, I was told he has arthitis in his hip. The doctor put him on 200mg of Tramadol and 50mg of Duramaxx daily. The doctor said that this is all we could do for him short of hip replacement surgery. The first part of July, my dog began to get worse, he would not stand for any length of time and was crying a lot, so I googled hip replacement for dogs and came across your website. I ordered your product and received it on the 7th of July. I double dosed him for the first week and noticed a small improvement. He does not cry as much and is getting around better but still spends most of his time lying down. I have cut him back to one dose a day along with the other medications. If I go back to double dosing, how long can I do this and an approximate timeline for improvement?

You can also divide the regular dose in half and give twice daily. If he has a more difficult day you can give another half dose another one or two times. If there are symptoms at the time then give another dose. If there are no symptoms then you do not need to give another dose.

I would also find a veterinary chiropractor or perhaps a veterinary acupuncturist. Reestablishing proper alignment might with helping the joint to recover. If abnormal pressure is relieved reducing wear, the homeopathics can help stimulate healing and repair.

Please let us know what happens.
