Health Questions & Answers



I have a 13 yr female Boxer/Pitbull who has torn her ACL on both rear knees 6 months apart. I was going to do the surgery when the 1st injury occured but we were hit by Sandy (Long Beach, NY) and we lost almost everything. We are living with family until our place was livable. So with the hardship on our shoulders we could not afford the surgery and to make matters worse, my poor Remy tore her other ACL on her other rear knee. We did take her to the vet to at least to give her pain meds. I could not afford the surgery but I couldn't watch her in so much pain. She was put on pain meds and an anti-inflammatory which almost killed her. She developed internal bleeding and had to be hospitalized. When it rains it pours. She is on these supplements, Dasuquin w/MSM, AllerG-3, Duralacin and Celadrin. She is eats Canine Caviar Holistic Chicken & Pearl Millet which is Gluten and wheat free. She is doing much better and does not seem to be in as much pain as she use to be. Our younger dog, Molly (Pitbull), will need help getting on the bed and if I touch her hind area she will let out a cry. But I was hoping I did not have to give her so many supplements to keep her pain under control, don't get me wrong if I have to I will. I wont let my babies suffer. I would do without before I let them suffer. Do you think any of your product can help Remy? Can it be added to the cocktail I am giving her? One more question, Remy has about 4 to 5 fatty lumps (vet confirm they are fat cells) - vet told me not to worry but I am worry that they can turn cancerous. Do you have a product to help reduce these lumps? Sorry for the long story. Thank you for your time - Dorothy

Dear Dorothy,

I am sorry you have had so many challenges in a short period of time. 80% of dogs that tear one ACL will tear the other side. I would try Promaxol to further 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. 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. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. This usually makes a difference when there have been knee injuries.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
