Health Questions & Answers



I have a 90 pound (not overweight) 2 year old golden retriever. We have gone on bike rides nearly everyday since she was a puppy. Here the past several months, she does not come to the gate ready for them anymore, and I have to call and make her come. Then on the ride, she just walks slowly and wobbles her back end the whole time. I have to cut the ride so short because of this. I plan to take her to the vet to get diagnosed, but wondering if I could go ahead and start her on the Arthro-IonX? Thank you for any advice. Also what other supplements would be helpful.

Dear Cassie,

You may start with Arthro-IonX or Promaxol before a diagnosis since homeopathy deals with the symptoms. 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. 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
