Ruby, our Labrador, will be 8 in August, has for a while extra bone growth on her front lower joints. We understand this may be arthritis. We have been giving her ease flex plus chews which seemed to help. However when she does have a run about after the ball, which she loves, she now limps really very badly and clearly is in a lot of pain, which lasts for a while. eg run about in garden yesterday afternoon, last night and this morning still suffering when walking. What can I give her to alleviate the pain, or to help with her condition. Thanks

Dear Margaret,

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 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.What kind of food do you feed her? 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
