Fortis was prescribed a herbal compound called Double P ll. Has anyone used this herb? If so, what was your experience? Pam….is it safe?

Wow that's a new one.
I googled it but couldn't come up with anything (by the way, don't google "Double P ll" or your jaw will drop like mine did!) I googled "Double P ii" and got some scientific stuff but no relevant results. Is this a brand name or the scientific one? Who makes it? Any other info from the bottle or prescription you can pass along here would be helpful

This is a Chinese herb produced by Jin-Tang Herbal. This is the company that I order my dog Kona's herbs from since they are guaranteed to be pure.
I would be careful with the Double P II. It is prescribed for the acute, painful phase of intervertebral disc disease and my guide says "Extremely toxic. Use only for a short time at a low dosage." A better herb for Fortis might be Ba Ji San which is for rear weakness or a sore or weak back and has no contraindications and can be given long-term.
If an experienced holistic vet/herbalist prescribes the Double P II then by all means use it but it is only for short-term use. Is he also getting acupuncture?
Thanks for the reply. Yes Fortis had his first chiropractic and acupuncture treatment for his ampuversary. The vet prescribed 1.5 teaspoons twice daily with food of the Double P ll compound. (sorry about the google search). I was worried about the toxicity. Thanks for the info Pam. Fortis will have another treatment next week and I will ask her more about the Double P ll as well as the Ba Ji San that you have mentioned. In the mean time I will stop with the P ll. I didn't like the way Fortis acted when I gave it to him.
He absolutely loved the treatment though. What a blast he seemed to have. Not sure if it will help with the knee problem but it's worth every penny just to see him having such a fun time.
My female standard (10 yr old) had a spinal cord stroke 4 weeks. She's been on Double P 11 for three weeks. She regained aobut 90% of her movement in the affected rear leg. My vet suggests staying on it for two more weeks but I question uusing it that long. She seems a little off but of course she had the stroke and can't play yet like she did. She's 55 lbs and on 6 (5mg.) pills a day. She did get acupuncture and treadmill wlaking under water for the first two weeks.

Thanks for asking Hal. We're not vets and have never used Double P 11, so hopefully Dr. Pam, or others with experience can provide better advice. Please consider registerring to take full advantage of these forums including automatic post approval, subscribing to reply notifications, and much more.

If she is responding I would continue as your vet suggests. If she develops vomiting or diarrhea then alert your vet.
