Does this medicine make the animal sleepy? The one that the vet gave me now it does and it makes her pant a lot he took x-rays and said it was in the lower part of her back. She is 7 years old and is a small dog.

Dear J,

Neither ARTHRO-IONX or PROMAXOL will cause drowsines or have other negative side effects associated with conventional NSAIDS. 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 Probiotics with each meal and Omega 3,6,9, daily. 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
