Dear Dr Char,

I hope you remember Annabelle my soon to be 14 year old Yellow Labrador who has torn cruciates in both back legs.She is having her second go around with Adaquin shots, I'm also giving her 2 tablets of Dasuquin, 1/4 tsp Fish Oil, 1/4 tsp MSM, Acupuncture every 3 weeks. I started Anna on 1 tsp.of your Promaxol (87 pounds.) on the 22nd of May...It has been 3 weeks. I have not yet seen a difference. Do you think if I keep giving it to her it will help?

Do you have any suggestions, is there something else I can do? She is walking some and she is still able to ride her golf cart. Her arthritis is really taking a toll. I make sure she walks, I know how important that is, she can't walk far but I have to keep her moving....I am also giving her Tramadol 50 mg.

As always thank you for your help.

Kind regards,

Barbara and Annabelle

Dear Barbara,

You can also consult a veterinary chiropractor. This is usually helpful for the larger breed dogs.

Getting a special sling or harness for your dog to wear so you can offer assistance helps to lessen the amount of weight your dog has to carry and can help keep your dog moving and getting exercise. Getting up is usually the most difficult and that way you can help with that without hurting your back. I also use the supplement Geri-Form or Cholodin to help the nerve conductivity. I have also used Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy with good response. Please keep trying because it takes longer for the elderly to respond. You can also double the amount of the IonX products used. I prefer to divide the doses so that it is given four times daily. You could try 4 half doses.

If the stools soften then decrease the size of the dose. Please keep us updated. Thanks.

Best regards,
Dr. Char
