Dear Dawn,

It is not recommended in dogs because it can cause serious ulceration and kidney damage. I would instead try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. PromaxolL would be a good choice for your dog. It contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX.

In addition, it is helpful to give digestive enzymes with each meal, MSM, probiotics, vitamin C, and fish oil. 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.

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.

Please let us know how you do.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
