Health Questions & Answers



Our 10 year old white cat, who is blind, fell off a pin-ball machine about 4 years ago(+) and since then has been favoring his leg. Recently he has become more lame and seems to be depressed, also. He is eating, using his box, drinking water as usual, but sleeps most of the time and cannot jump onto beds or couch anymore. It is painful for him to use the stairs, altho he does do it 2x a day. I have been giving him 2 cosequin sprinkle tabs mixed into his wet food. It seemed to work for a bit, but now, with the cold weather in MN (he stays inside always) his mobility seems to have gotten worse. I read with interest the info on the web for Anthro-Ionx or Promaxol. Would you recommend one over the other, or none at all? Thank you for taking the time to answer this inquiry. Linda

Dear Linda,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your cat. 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 and Omega 3,6,9. 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. Because of the fall this is really important.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
