Health Questions & Answers



We just bought some Arthro-IonX for our dogs. We want to put the medicine in the water like it says we can. However, we do not know how much to put in the water bowl. Our water bowl is 3.3 liter. Our dog weighs 30 lbs. We need your help.

Dear Robert,

I prefer to add it to each individual dog's food so you have some control over how much each one gets. The dosage is based on body weight. When you add it to the water usually some of the water gets thrown out when the water bowl is washed and refilled. Even if you only had one dog and you added the entire dose to the water bowl it would be unlikely your dog would drink every drop to get the entire dose. I suggest to owners that initially they give a half dose twice daily with breakfast and supper. After improvement is seen then the whole dose given once daily usually works well. Please let us know of your progress.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
