My dog was just diagnosed and put on low dose of Carprofen. He developed urinary problems - constantly need to go all night. I took him off the pills and he's better but not back to himself yet. I have used Arthro-IonX on a 15 year old cat for years and it has made a terrific difference to him. I have some Promaxol in the house and have started my dog on it but I'm not sure whether Arthro-IonX or Promaxol is more appropriate. Also the Promaxol shows an expiry date of 6/15. Webster (the dog) is overweight due to a thyroid issue for which he takes .6 mg of thyroid meds. He was an abused dog when we took him in and I suspect this is the cause of his problems. Tramadol was also mentioned as a possible treatment option by our vet. What would you suggest?

Dear Ilene,

I like to start with PROMAXOL because it contains all the ingredients of ARTHRO-IONX plus the LM potencies of each ingredient. Initially I would split the dose and give a half dose on the breakfast food and a half dose on the supper food. Once you see improvement you can switch to ARTHRO-IONX. Check your PROMAXOL to make sure it does not have strands of debris that would indicate there is something growing in it. I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to support the body and help with weight loss. What do you feed him and what kind of water does he get? These factors influence arthritis symptoms. I would try to hold off on giving the Tramadol and if necessary only use the lowest dose possible. When using any prescription medications, they should be used at a separate from the homeopathic so the body can focus on the homeopathic before having to respond to the drug.

I would also get a veterinary chiropractic exam. Proper alignment can help the healing process.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
