I have a 3 year old lab. Whenever he runs he limps afterward. If he lays down he has trouble standing up and whines. His legs do not seam to be tender to the touch and there are no wounds. This has been going on for about 6 months now. Could he have arthritis?

Dear Melody,

Your dog might have hip dysplasia or a spinal subluxation. To help with the limping and stiffness I would give 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?

I would also suggest an evaluation by a veterinary chiropractor. If a correction is needed, that can help with better movement and more strength in the rear end. Acupuncture is also helpful. Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
