My dog cries from arthritis: Carodyl gave relief for years but no more. Now on prescription Ultram (veterinary name?) but for only a few days with minimal relief. Gave him glucosamine - crying even more and with severe diarrhea!? HELP!

Dear Gretchen,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog. It contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX. You may use the IONX homeopathic products along with your prescription medication. As healing begins you can discuss with your veterinarian about reducing the drug dosage.

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. 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
