My 12 1/2 year old dog recently diagnosed with arthritis in right hip, back thru x-rays. Currently taking Synovi G4, Carprofen and Gabapentin. Can I try Arthro-Ionx while she is taking these products? Her mobility is not good when getting up.

Yes it would be safe to give ARTHRO-IONX. However you need to give the homeopathic away from the drugs so that the body has time to respond to ARTHRO-IONX before having to focus on the drug. Initially I like to split the dose of the ARTHRO-IONX giving a half dose with breakfast and a half dose with supper. However it does not need to be given with meals if that is when you give the other medications. Once improvement is seen I switch to a whole dose on one of the meals. I would also give PROBIOTICS since the drugs are damaging to the intestinal flora. Omega 3,6,9 can help the joints and reduce inflammation. When you see some improvement ask your veterinarian about reducing the amount of drugs being given.
