Hello... PLEASE be honest with me I have a 6 year old lab mix with hip dysplasia, slow getting up, range of motion is less, at times he cries when getting up. I have him on glucose- condroiton for two years now 1500mg. Will the Arthro-IonX help him? It kills me to see him like this, he is my son not my dog. I'm disabled and he is all I have.

Dear Brian,

I have seen positive responses from Promaxol and Arthro-IonX as well as taking a holistic approach. I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog because 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 can be very 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
