My dog is 9 year old German Shorthaired Pointer that has a 13 year old generation line in his family. Problem is he has bad knees. We did TPLO surgery on one knee with intentions of doing the other one 3 months later (initial dx of bilateral cruciate tears) but the first surgery led to complications and major muscle loss, so we did not do the other leg. Now we are going to a new vet and seeing the x-rays, he has bad osteoarthritis. I have tried numerous things, including "dog gone pain" and the perna lipped green mussel, nothing seems to help him. Do you feel Arthro-IonX might?

Dear Sheryl,

Arthro-IonX would be a different approach that you haven't tried. It helps with pain and inflammation and can be used with your other supplement. It also stimulates enzyme systems to help repair the joints. In addition, I would give digestive enzymes with meals, probiotics, and a high quality fish oil. This all works synergistically for faster healing. If you can find a veterinary chiropractor to evaluate the spine and hips that could be beneficial as well. It helps to have the weight distributed properly. Please keep us informed of your progress and if we can be of further assistance.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
