Health Questions & Answers



Max, my 6 year old German Shorthair has been carrying his left hind leg when he does too much walking or running. My other shorthair had a torn ACL and carried her leg the same way. Should I take him to the vet, or should I try Promaxol? I've been giving him Artho-IonX for quite some time now. I was thinking about maybe changing him over to Promaxol instead. Can I do that, should I do that. I am retired and am on a limited income, but of course I want to do what is best for Max too. Can you help? Thanks.

Dear Cheryl,

PROMAXOL could be helpful especially if the ligament is not completely torn. It helps to reduce pain,and inflammation and stimulate healing. Try to limit the amount of running and jumping while the knee is still weak. Usually leash walks are in order to prevent further injury.

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. The supplements I recommend are digestive enzymes with each meal, MSM, probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9. Ligaplex 1 by Standard Process contains nutrition for ligaments. 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 and hip alignment and make any necessary corrections.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
