My German Shepherd has hip dylplasia and arthritis really bad and he is on Rimadyl, He can barely lay down and he is in a lot of pain to where he can't sleep at times. What can I give him to feel better - he is 8 years old?

Dear Deborah,

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. 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 type of protein source should be chosen based upon if your dog seems to feel quite warm or tends to be cool. What food are you feeding now and where do you live?

The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. Acupuncture can also be very helpful as well.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
