Health Questions & Answers



I have a 14 year old rat/yorkie mix (19 lbs.) about a year ago he started limping. We thought he probably just jumped off something and we just watched him. We eventually took him to our vet. They took x-rays and could find nothing wrong. We started him on laser therapy and Rimadyl. He really didn't get any better but also did not get any worst. He still like to go for walks but I don't want to do anything that could harm him. We carry him down the steps to the family room, not because he can't do it but because the vet originally said to carry him. If someone forgets to close the door he will go down on his own. His appetite is good. He does take Cosequin and a probiotic. He does not seem to be in any pain. He still jumps up on the couch, sometimes it takes a couple of trys. Do you think this product would be helpful for him?

Dear Melany,

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 give OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation.

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. Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
