TPLO was recommended several years ago for my now 10 year old Rottweiler. I could not afford the surgery, and with medication she improved greatly. Eight days ago she slipped on the stairs, and "fell" 2-3 carpeted steps. She does not have a fracture and is on Rimadyl 75 mg bid. Would Arthro-IonX help her? Shirley

Dear Shirley,

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
