old dog with weak back legs

I have a 14 year old lab whose back legs are becoming increasingly weak. He needs help in getting up. His muscles have diminished greatly in size. He has a good diet - lean ground beef, chicken, fish, steak, vegetables and a small amount of high quality dry dog food. He takes multiple vitamins, pantothenic acid, glucosamine.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him rhus tox 30 daily for 5 days. If there is no improvement by 10th day please give him a single dose of calc carb 200 and see how that affects in next 10 days.

I have Rhus Tox 30X but will have to locate a supply for cal carb 200. Does it make a difference if I use 200C or 200X ? I probably will have to order it. Will cal carb then need to be given immediately after the 10th day if no improvement or will it be necessary to wait ?

Thank you for your assistance.

i have advised rhus tox 30C. 30 means 30C not 30X.

Again Calc Carb 200 means Calc Carb 200C.

It is better to see whether rhus does the work before giving Calc Carb.

Thank you for the clarification. As you can see your original response that I received did not indicate C or X for the rhus tox.

I have finally located rhus tox 30C. The bottle suggests a dosage of:
3-6 pellets, 3-4 times a day. Which dosage and time table do you recommend that I use.

As you can tell I am not that knowledgeable and really do appreciate your help.
THANK YOU

Please give him 2 pellets of rhus tox 30c daily for 5 days.

I don't know if weight makes a difference but I should have mentioned that he does weigh 90 pounds.

THANK YOU

Okay. Let us stick to our plan.

His legs seemed to improve quite a bit(not perfect) the first couple of days and then he seemed to slip backwards. No improvement in the 5 days since the rhus tox stopped.

THANK YOU

Please give him three doses of calc carb 200 at a gap of 12 hours and see how that affects in next 7 days.
 
kadwa 8 years ago
I gave him 3 doses of
calc carb 200 as directed and have seen no improvement. In fact I believe he is worse.
THANK YOU

Please give him 2 pellets of rhus tox 30 every alternate day and report back after 15 days.

I have given the rhus tox 30 as directed and see no improvement. We have to lift him(100 lbs) and uncross his back legs to stand. He doesn't seem to be able to navigate them. His muscle in the rear has diminished a lot.
THANK YOU

Please don't give him any homeopathic remedy for next 7 days and see how it goes.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
There has been no improvement.

THANK YOU

Please give him 3 pellets of calc phos 6x in the morning and evening for 7 days.

On the second day of calc phos he moved around a little on his own. Then nothing. On the 7th day he moved from one room to another on his own.
Since he is 100 lbs(almost the size of a human adult) would it help to increase his dose ?

THANK YOU

This dose is enough for a grown up human being. Please continue the tissue salt for another week and see how it affects.
 
kadwa 7 years ago
There has not really been much change. About once every couple of days he will get up by himself, otherwise you have to insist.
THANK YOU

I have had some success with a black Lab who is 15 years old and was in the same condition as yours.

I prescribed my default remedy Arnica 30c in the Wet dose and she was walking and even running around like she did 5 years ago within the week.

Please follow the instructions below literally:

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

Report progress weekly.

after having the arnica 30c backordered twice i have finally received it.

do i give this once a day or more often ??

do i continue to use the initial bottle mix or do i make a new batch each day.

thank you

That was a very unusual delay to get Arnica as I see that I prescribed it last December and you have just received it.

You will give a teaspoonful of the remedy twice daily and you will only activate the water just once and use it till it is finished in about 3 months.
 
Joe De Livera 7 years ago
Yes it was a long delay - I believe in part to the person who was doing the ordering. She seemed to be new.
Also the top on the bottle has an unusual top(similar to that you find on some oil salad dressings). You just shake it and it spatters out a little bit. I think it best to remove this and use a dropper to get an accurate dose.
THANK YOU

If you have not already taken out the dropper arrangement, just leave it in place.

All you have to do is to tap the back of the bottle when it is inverted over the bottle of water and you will observe that every tap brings forth a drop.

All you want is just 3 drops in the 400ml water.
