Health Questions & Answers



Hi, We have a 6 month old golden retriever puppy who's having some struggle once in a while getting up, or coming up the stairs. We got her diagnosed and found out that she has hip dysplasia. Two vet doctors that we consulted are recommending surgery to treat the condition. We were looking if alternative methods existed to treat hip dysplasia and came across your site. Wanted to know if Arthro-IonX is safe to treat her condition, and is a safe way to avoid surgery? Your thoughts are much appreciated.

Dear Nimish,

Before considering surgery I would try a more holistic approach to see how much healing you can achieve. I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice for your dog. 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. Keeping the bones in the proper place helps with better joint formation.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
