Health Questions & Answers



Our 7+ year old Chihuahua was diagnosed with erosive arthritis a year ago. She can hardly stand by herself anymore and we would like to know if this medicine would be any help to her. If at all possible, we would like to discuss this over the phone. Thank you for your time.

Dear Morgan,

We would like to help you as much as possible via email. I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain 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, Omega 3,6,9, MSM, and vitamin C daily. (We carry the first two and the other two you can get at a health food store.) 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. What kind of food and treats do you currently give? The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. Looking forward to your response.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
