Degenerative Disc Disease

Question:

Hello, I have 2 daschunds. One is 7 yrs old and one is 2. The 7 yr old was just diagnosed with Disc Disease. He is currently being treated with Steroids. We are waiting to see if this works. In the meantime, I have been trying to research some alternatives. Also, I was hoping that there was some kind of Supplement that I could give them to avoid this. I was looking at the product Seven Forests Liquidambar 15. I was hoping that someone could give me some more information on it, like are there any side effects that I should know of and would it help prevent this terrible health problem in my daschunds. Thank you for any information that you can give me.

Answer:

Hello,

Thank you for visiting Only Natural Pet Store.  Dr. Siegler suggests the following supplements to support your dog's back health:

  • Vetri-Science Vetri-Disc
  • Liquidambar 15 by Seven Forests.

The Vetri-Science Vetri-Disc can be given to the 2 year old to aid in prevention.

Dr. Siegler also recommended acupuncture.  Here is a link to the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association referral directory and the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture where you may be able to find a veterinarian close to you who is trained in acupuncture.

Side effects from either of these supplements are rare.  It is best to introduce only one supplement at a time, starting at ½ the recommended full dose and gradually building to full dose over the course of several days.  If you see any signs of digestive discomfort, then discontinue use of the supplement.  You can try introducing the supplement again at a lower dose after all signs of discomfort are gone.
