Health Questions & Answers



I have a 12 to 13 year old Basset that we rescued 2 years ago from a puppy mill. She has lost most of her bottom teeth from having so many litters over the years and as a result of the litters, her hips are in pretty arthritic shape. When the weather changes we have to watch her close and administer Tramadol and Rimadyl for inflammation. Due to the heat in our area (Houston) I am unable to take her for walks. She is slightly over weight at 70 lbs. The other evening she wanted on the couch. She will jump up and put her paws on the couch and I do the rest supporting her hind quarters. She stepped into a crevice between the cushions and either strained her foot or reaggravated a muscle pull on the left side of her back. My question is which one of the products will do her the most good. Arthro-Ionx or Promaxol. Also, I noted in reading that the products are Internal + External, but the literature on the website makes no mention of applying to a sore area. Can the products be rubbed on in addition to giving by mouth. She is Daddy's baby or I'm hers, not sure which. LOL Please advise. I don't like giving her over a couple of days worth of the prescription stuff due to her age and everything even though her blood work is better than mine.

Thanks, Kenny

PROMAXOL is ARTHRO-IONX plus the LM potencies of each of the individual ingredients. If a condition is severe I start with PROMAXOL and then switch over to ARTHRO-IONX for maintenance. For either one, initially I give a half dose twice daily on the breakfast and supper meals. If you need to you can give one or two additional half doses as needed. With improvement I switch to a whole dose once a day. It is OK if you want to start with ARTHRO-IONX. If after using ARTHRO-IONX for a while, and you still need more support then you could add in PROMAXOL. You can apply homeopathics topically but I think the most important route is orally.

  I would also give PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to strengthen the body and reduce  inflammation. These are available from Vetionx as well.   What kind of food, supplements, and water  are you giving?  These factors make a difference for certain conditions.

    Looking forward to your reply  regarding the above questions.
