Health Questions & Answers



I have a 17 years old cat (TJ) who had occasionally shown arthritis symptom which I would treat with pain meds and after a few hours he would be fine. Two weeks ago he appeared to have fallen. He was having great difficulty walking and in a lot of pain. Xrays showed arthritis in his hip, swollen knee joint, and possible sprained ankle. He has been getting pain meds, two laser treatments, and heating pad and is showing some improvement. I would like to start him on Arthro-Ionx but am concerned because he has the beginnings of kidney problems and is being treated for hyperthyroidism. Would Arthro-IonX make these problems worse? I also have a 14 years old shepard-cross (Chyna) who had her hip joints replaced as a young dog. She has a lot of problems with pain and weakness in her hind quarters. She get muscle relaxants and pain meds twice a day. Would Arthro-IonX improve her condition? Thank you for any suggestions you can give me. -Mary-

Dear Mary,

For both of your pets I would start with Promaxol first to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice because contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX. For TJ I would give only 10 drops twice daily on some canned food. It is a small amount and should not bother his kidneys. In addition it is helpful to give digestive enzymes, probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9.

Your dog would also probably benefit from Promaxol and Arthro-IonX. For supplements I would give Canine Probiotics, 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.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
