7 YR OLD MINIATURE DACHSHUND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS

June 10, 2014

Dear Dr. Kruger,

I have a 7 yr old miniature dachshund, last year she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. She is being treated with steroids, (prednisone), 1/2 tablet daily. I want to purchase your product, but need to know if it’s safe with daily medication. I'm also not sure which formula to purchase. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Hi Tina

In this case I would use the Healthy Joint formula. The other formulas have more enhancing effects on the immune system. In this case, the immune system is already too active, so we don't want it to react even more. That is why you are giving the pred to surpress it. Hope this answers your question.
