I have a 12 year old min pin that has arthritis in lower spine. Is it possible to treat this with Manuka Honey & Ceylon Cinnamon as in humans? If so, what would be an appropriate dose for a 11 lb doggie? She is in good health overall and once over the morning slowness of the above is very energetic.
Thanks for asking Chris and for re-posting from Facebook.
Yes, this combo can work wonderfully tho typically is not my initial modification in these cases.
First off is often tremendous improvement in quality of life and morning slowness with fresh food feeding and homeopathic prescribing done by a certified vet homeopath. The AVH site can refer you [url=http://theavh.org/referrals/]here[/url].
Second would be the wonderful benefit gained from local heat treatments and massage. You can do this yourself at home in the morning before rising. I am also a big fan of the home-administered electrical stimulation of the [url=http://www.assisianimalhealth.com/pet-owners/]Assisi loop[/url].
Third are supplements as needed such as those you described, Antiox, Boswellia, Nutriflex, etc. (more info on these is available by searching in the store area of the site).
I also wrote a comprehensive article on treatment of arthritis [url=http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/holistic-treatment-of-arthritis/]here[/url].
