Health Questions & Answers



We have a chocolate lab who had her l/r leg removed a year ago due to bone cancer...although I truly believe it was an injury created when my father stepped hard on her...anyway within the last 4 months she has become very inactive, we thought the worse, again, the vet took x-rays and said it's arthritis. She is now very inactive, hunches her back and does not want to bend the remaining rear leg. She will stretch it out when she is sleeping, which is when you can see just bones, as though the muscle is leaving. Hard to get up in the morning, but I get her moving and she is able to move for the most part the remainder of the day. She is also turning the back leg outward which makes that thigh area jet away from her body when she hops.

So question is, I have been treating her with glucosamine, hylauronic acid, and bosweillia. That therapy has been going for three it working...not sure and that is why I have been searching and found this site. Can I give her the ARTHRO-IONX with the other supplements I have been giving? Not looking for a miracle cure as I know we are fortunate to still have her here with us. Am looking for pain relief so she can still enjoy life. Aspirin caused her stomach to bleed, Tramadol caused her to be lethargic and I do not want to give her any other prescriptions. Thank you much for your time!

I would try Promaxol because it is Arthro-IonX plus the additional LM potencies of each ingredient. It should help with the stiffness and weakness. In addition to the supplements you are giving, I would also give digestive enzymes, probiotics, fish oil, MSM, and vitamin C. Together with the IonX product base, there is better utilization of the diet and supplements. For food, I would try grain free or at least one that does not contain any genetically modified grains. For drinking, try to avoid water that contains chlorine or fluoride. I would also have her checked by a veterinary chiropractor and/or veterinary acupuncturist. Both modalities can help to strengthen the rear leg. Please let us know how you do.
