My dog has been through a lot the last couple of months. He was showing signs of pain in his neck area, as he was hunched over, pacing around and could not get comfortable. I took him to my vet and they thought it may be a disk issue. They gave him Prednisone, Tramadol and an antibiotic. Pain persisted so they sent me to a neurologist for my dog. He took blood tests to see if it was meningitis, and did a MRI.  He ended up thinking it was a disk issue as well and operated on him. Pain persisted after operation. He then started treating our dog for meningitis with many medications which helped with neck pain issue but he is still on medications. Originally they put him on Baytril, Clindamycine, Gabapentin, Diazepam, Fentanyl patch, Amitriptyline, Cyclosporine, Famotidine. Now he is still on Gabapentin, Diazepam (when needed), Cclosporine and we are weening him off of Prednisone. However, I was told that because of all the medications, he has now been pushed into diabetes. He should be weened off of Prednisone by end of this week but has to continue to be on Gabapentin and Cyclosporine for several more weeks. As you can imagine, I am frustrated and angry that this has happened to my dog. Do you think Dia-IonX can help my dog?

Dear Brenda,

That is a lot to go through. You can try Dia-IonX to help support the body as you begin the recovery phase. In addition I would give Canine Probiotics, MSM, vitamin C, and Omega 3,6,9 to help reduce inflammation and hopefully aid to reducing the medications.

I would also try to find a veterinarian that does acupuncture. Acupuncture often has better results than surgery. Don't give up hope. The complementary modalities offer a lot in this area.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
