Health Questions & Answers



Our cat has developed a limp in his front left leg. We have taken him to the vet twice over the last 3 months and they say x-rays do not show anything but that it is probably arthritis. How can we tell for sure? Should we seek out another vet for a 2nd opinion? He does not act like it hurts to touch his leg or shoulder but his limp is getting worse. The vet gave us Metacam but this only slightly helps. Please give me your thoughts!

I would recommend our product Arthro-IonX which helps with pain, stiffness, and inflammation. I would also try giving him some probiotics and fish oil. It usually works well together with Arthro-IonX especially for arthritic symptoms.

I would try to see a veterinary acupuncturist for an evaluation. He or she could advise you if some other testing would be warranted at this time depending upon the patterns they are seeing in your cat. I like to start with the basics and act in a timely fashion with the result of each step. Please let us know how how you do and if you have any other questions.

Best regards,
Dr. Char
