Health Questions & Answers



Sparky is our 11.5 years old Welsh Terrier. Recently she was diagnosed with non-reversible Kidney & Pancreas damage. She is very lively. One other ailment she has is a Heart murmur. Our vet has advised to put her on a Low Protein Diet and has prescribed 2 medications. One of the medications is Aluminum Dihydroxide to control phosphorous. I don't know what the other is. I have been using Arthro-IonX for our soft coated Wheaton, since 2011. He improved so much and I very rarely have to use the medicine my Vet prescribed, actually I only used it recently after he had a spell of Vertigo. I am hoping you have a product we can give Sparky that won't cause additional problems, via side-effects.

Dear Maddy,

The holistic approach would be to give Dia-IonX to support the liver, pancreas, and kidney; this would make it a good addition to the breakfast and supper meals. Canine Probiotics and digestive enzymes that include Pancreatic enzymes would also help with better digestion and reduces the load on the kidneys. I would also use Omega 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation in the body especially in the gut which will influence the entire body.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
