Health Questions & Answers



Hello, this past Wednesday, my dog started experiencing problems with her hind legs and mobility. It just came on suddenly so I took her to our vet who kept her for the day, ran tests, checked her legs, and x-rays. At the end of the day, she told us that it appeared that Lilly, our 6 year old pit mix, had spinal injury and something that may had been degenerating for some time. I took her to a specialist today and he said that surgery would not help and it would not allow for any improvement due to no pain in her hind paws after his examination. He gave us steroids to give Lilly, but I feel that someone more homeopathic might be better for her. She is urinating and has bowel movement. Any suggestions?

Dear Linda,

PROMAXOL can help with pain and inflammation. If you are currently using other medications you will need to give the homeopathic at a separate time away the steroids and pain meds. As you begin to see improvement you can switch to ARTHRO-IONX. I would also give probiotics and Omega 3,6,9 to support the body. I would feed a grain free food preferably fish or tukey based until things improve. The water that you use should be filtered if it contains any chlorine.

Acupuncture can also have very good results. Outcomes can be better than surgery.

I would also have a veterinary chiropractor evaluate her. The sooner the better. Try to provide that person with x-rays. In my experience I have seen dogs resume mobility again if it has not gone on for a long time.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
