Health Questions & Answers



Bailey was diagnosed with a torn ACL in November 2012 as well as Hip Dyplasia (also arthritis). No surgery was performed. With limited activity and prescriptions, (6-8 wks) he slowly improved as far as being able to get up without assistance. However, the contraindications from the Rx's were terrible; I eventually took him off of previcox for this reason. Later he had a series (6) of cold laser treatments. Unfortunately, they didn't help. He was still on tramadol for pain, but side affects were less than desirable. After searching the web, I checked out your Company and ordered Arthro-IonX. I do not recall the length of time used before switching over to Promaxol because of the Hip Dyplasia problem. After initial improvement, I cut back to once-a-day. He was doing great! However, my question: he NOW has a torn acl in the other back leg and our problem starts over again. Should I continue to use Promaxol permanently? Thank you for addressing my problem. P.S. Because of the cost of your product, I was considering the 32-oz. because it would be less expensive. However I thought I read in your material, it should be used within a certain period of time if so, the larger quantity would be outdated before used up.

Dear Faye,

I would try a combination of ARTHRO- IONX and PROMAXOL to reduce the pain and help stimulate healing. PROMAXOL contains the stronger LM potencies. I would try a half dose of ARTHRO-IONX with breakfast and a half dose of PROMAXOL with supper. You might be able to do well giving ARTHRO more frequently and PROMAXOL occasionally. If you get a big bottle you could keep it in the refrigerator and dose from a smaller one that you refill but I don't know if you will use the big one fast enough before losing it's freshness. I would also give Ligaplex by Standard Process to provide nutrients for the ligaments. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. It can lessen stress on the knees. Acupuncture is another modality that can be helpful.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
