Hi Dr. Char,

Lady after going acl surgery is doing ok. Just need r & r for some time. My question:

She had surgery for a ruptured acl and she does have a slight tear in her other leg. I know there is conservative management and not to have surgery. Do you have any suggestions? I know glucosamine, MSM and chondrotin is good. How much will she need, and anything else. She has been on arthro-Ionx for a year now and the vet said her hips look great. Is there anything that i can do to help her tear other than having her take it easy? thank you

Digestive enzymes, probiotics, and fish oil are also very important. For ligament problems I also use Ligaplex by Standard Process. To give glucosamine I usually use one of the GlycoFlex products by Vetri-Science because it contains manganese and co-factors that all work together. I follow label directions on it which is based upon body weight.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
