Health Questions & Answers



My dog recently had a problem with his right knee. Soon after his left knee was bad too. The vet put him on carprofen for a few months now, and he seems better. He just went down the two steps to go outside and yelped. He reinjures himself alot. He is a mix dog, about 110 lbs, not fat, just a big dog. Do you know your product will work on him? Arthro-onyx. The vet also told us he needs surgery. It would be $1500 for each knee. We put it off bc it seemed like he got better. We even bought his rubber booties to help him with traction on our hardwood floors. Please advise. Thanks, Lynn

Dear Lynn,

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 is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. This might help take stress off his knees.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
