Unable to stand. 10 ye old mixed terrier. Given Presidnisone 5 mg. 1/2 twice daily. Gradually reduced over three months. Much better. But Vet recommends Rimydl to replace Predinisone. I refused. Glucosmine has helped her. She does better, but her gait is sometimes uneven. Eats

well. Active but not the stamina she once had(Older, I understand). Would your product help with the swelling in the spine and the disconfort occasionally seen?

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog. It contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen, then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX. In addition, it is helpful to give digestive enzymes with each meal, MSM, probiotics, vitamin C, and fish oil. The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IonX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given (including the glucosamine) for a synergistic response and faster healing. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. If you can gradually phase into a grain-free diet, that can be helpful too. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. Acupuncture is also very helpful. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.
