My Golden Retriever is 12 years old and suffers form severe arthritis and hip dysplasia. In this last week he has lost his appetite. I took him to our Vet on Friday, who examined and said heart and lungs are fine and suggested that we take him off his medication called Etodolac we give to help his condition to see if his appetite will come back. I told my vet he has been taking this for over 2 months and never experienced an appetite loss. I think something else is going on with him. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I hate to see him like this. All he wants to do is sleep.

Dear Tom,

 With time NSAIDS can cause gastric upset, so I hope that is all that is behind this change in behavior.

It would be good to give Promaxol or Arthro-IonX a try to help alleviate pain and give the body time to heal.
The homeopathic ingredients address the immediate symptoms and the oligo-therapeutic mineral base stimulates the enzyme symptoms in the body that help with healing. It can safely be used with other medications because the homeopathic ingredients do not negatively interact with other physical substances. Because it helps stimulate the enzymes in the body other areas of healing can occur. We sometimes get feedback from our customers about improvement in areas that we were not targeting.

 In addition the IonX products help the body better utilize other supplements taken.  I suggest digestive enzymes with each meal, a probiotic and a fish oil supplement daily.  Together there is a synergistic effect for a faster response.  Please let us know how you progress and if you have any further questions.<br /><br />

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
