My cat has only three legs, as she lost one on a wooden fence. She had a skin rash, and I gave her your product and the rash cleared up. Now she has trouble walking, as her back leg folds under her. I took her to our vet and he has given her three shots of steroids, and she has improved somewhat in her walking. How safe are the steroid shots, and how many might she need in the future so as to continue walking?

Could part of the problem with my cat's problem in walking be that I have been feeding her high carb food (IAMS, etc) and very little protein? What changes should I make in food feeding her?

Dear Malcolm,

Steroids are not a good long term solution. I would suggest you try Arthro-IonX so that you can minimize the use of steroids which can be hard on the liver and kidneys. Healing takes more time than just suppressing symptoms. Arthro-IonX helps to stimulate healing. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving some nutritional supplements to accompany Arthro-IonX. The supplements I recommend are Probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. I would also consult with a veterinary chiropractor since there is a history of injury and surgery. Even a small subluxation can disrupt proper function and create the symptoms you have.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
