Health Questions & Answers



I'm told that my dog has a slight tear in his ACL. Do you have a product that can help him? They've given him Rimadyl which upsets his tummy, and have told me to rest him. I also give him synovi4 chews. I do not want to do surgery, and am looking for a holistic way of helping him. He is a black lab/boxer mix and is 5 years old. -Karen-

Dear Karen,

Arthro-IonX can be helpful especially if the ligament is not completely torn. It helps to reduce pain,and inflammation and stimulate healing. Try to limit the amount of running and jumping while the knee is still weak. Usually leash walks are in order to prevent further injury.

The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IONX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given for a synergistic response and faster healing. Besides your supplement I would also recommend Canine probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. If you can gradually phase into a grain free diet that can be helpful too. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal and hip alignment and make any necessary corrections.

Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
