Hi. I have two dogs going on 14 this summer. My female had TPLO surgery in both back knees about 4 years ago. For a while now I have noticed the struggle for her to get up is harder and harder . I feel, no doubt, arthritis is in her back hips. I give her Cosequin joint supplement every day. I also give her phenobarbital daily. Would there be any effects if I started giving her the Arthro-IonX? Thank you, Scott.

Dear Scott,

You may use ARTHRO-IONX along with other medications or supplements so it is OK to use. It is homeopathic in nature and so it will not negatively interact with other physical substances. In addition I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation. I would also suggest that you consult with a veterinary chiropractor. If an adjustment is needed, it can make an improvement in movement. Using a harness with handles can help you steady your dog when rising and walking on slippery surfaces. (Guardian Gear makes one.) Trying to prevent a fall is worth the effort.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,
