Health Questions & Answers



My 10 yr. old Bernese Mountain dog has been suffering with Hip Dysplasia and in the past few weeks he is really having a hard time getting up. I ordered the Arthro-IonX for him. Should I order the Promaxol also? What are the ingredients in these products? Thanks. Sharon

Dear Sharon,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol 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 Canine Probiotics with each meal, Omega 3,6,9, MSM, and vitamin C daily. (We carry the first two and the other two you can get at a health food store.) 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. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary.

The homeopathic ingredients used to create Promaxol are:

Actaea spicata HPUS, Aesculus hippocastanum HPUS, Arnica montana HPUS, Bellis perennis HPUS, Bryonia HPUS, Calcarea carbonica HPUS, Calcarea fluorica HPUS, Causticum HPUS, Cimicifuga racemosa HPUS, Formicum acidum HPUS, Hamamelis virginiana HPUS, Hypericum perforatum HPUS, Magnesia phosphorica HPUS, Phytolacca decandra HPUS, Pulsatilla HPUS, Rhododendron chrysanthum HPUS, Rhus toxicodendron HPUS, Ruta graveolens HPUS, Salicylicum acidum HPUS, Sepia HPUS, Sulphur HPUS

The letter "HPUS" indicate that the components in this product are officially monographed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. Each of the above ingredients contains equal volumes of 10X, 20X, 30X, and LM1.

Arthro-IonX contains the same ingredients in the 10X, 20X, 30X, potencies but without the LM1.

If you want more information about why these were selected you may click on the ingredient tab under the product and it will explain the action.

Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions. I have some Berners too and so I am familiar with the breed.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
