My minature Schnauzer is 14 years old and for several years has had problems getting prone and his legs shake when he does get into a prone position. Yesterday he could no longer get into a prone position by himself. I can stand him up and he can stand for maybe 15 minutes and take some steps but then his back legs give out again. We love this dog as a family member and do not want to have to put him to sleep but I do want him to have a good quality of there a treatment, he has had several surgeries for calium build up in his urine and our vet did advise he can not go through another surgery due to his age and over all health. Is there a treament that would help.?

Dear Debbie,

I would try Promaxol to strengthen and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog because it contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX. In addition it is helpful to give Canine Probiotics with each meal and Omega 3,6,9 daily. The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IONX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given for a synergistic response and faster healing. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. If you can gradually phase into a grain free diet that can be helpful too. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
