Our dog just lays around and seems to be in pain. He is a big dog and is overweight. He has difficulty doing stairs (legs shake) and seems to be in pain and not feeling well. What can we give him for pain relief?

I would try PROMAXOL to help with the discomfort. It helps to decrease pain, inflammation, and stiffness and stimulate healing. Initially I would give a half dose with breakfast and again at supper. After improvement is seen you can decrease to a whole dose once daily. For longer term management you can switch to ARTHRO-IONX. However you can just start with ATHRO-IONX if you prefer. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving nutritional supplements to accompany the homeopathic. I would also use PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation and strengthen the body. What type of food and water are you giving? These too make a difference.

 It would also be beneficial to have an evaluation done by a veterinary chiropractor.  When the muscles tighten up it can put the bones out of alignment.  

Please let us know how you do.
