My dog was diagnosed as having a possible tear in her knee via x-ray. She is a Boxer. I love my dog very much, however the surgery if needed is over $2000.00. I cannot afford this right now. Does Arthro-IonX work on this type of injury? The vet is not sure if there is an actual tear; he just said that there seemed to be some fluid on the knee. What can I do? Thank you. -Cindy-

Dear Cindy,

Arthro-IonX could 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. The supplements I recommend are Canine Probiotics, MSM, 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
