Which product would be better for an 8 year old German Shepherd, Arthro-IonX or Promaxol? The history is surgery and radiation treatment done for infiltrative lipoma on the hind leg. He also has allergies. Pain in bad leg and showing signs of weakness in good leg, we want him off NSAIDs and on Rimadyl.

Dear Joanne,

I would start with Promaxol until you have the condition stabilized. At that point you might try to wean off the Rimadyl. NSAIDs can cause stomach irritation or damage the liver with long term usage. Considering all the other things going on, it would be helpful to support the body. Try to give him digestive enzymes with meals, a probiotic and a high quality fish oil daily. These will act synergistically with the VETiONX products to stimulate healing more quickly. Then you can switch to Arthro-IonX for maintenance to continue the healing process.

Please keep us informed of your progress and if we can help guide you.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
