Promaxol could be helpful, especially if the ligament is not completely torn. It helps to reduce pain and inflammation and stimulate healing. 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 digestive enzymes with each meal, MSM, probiotics, vitamin C, and fish oil. 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. 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. Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.
