Dog Torn Knee Ligament Protocol Step #1: Learn More About Torn Knee Ligaments
If you are new to dealing with knee ligament health challenges and are still learning how they affect your dog, you should get a free copy of our ebook What Your Vet May Not Tell You About Torn Knee Ligaments.
Holistic veterinarians Dr. Casey Damron and Dr. Marc Smith wrote the manual with you in mind. It explains what's going on, how your dog feels, and offers information on things you can do at home to help.
It explains in great detail the different types of surgeries and other options available, and the pros and cons of each.
Dog Torn Knee Ligament Protocol Step #2: Ease Your Dog's Discomfort Naturally
When a dog suffers from a physical injury, Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron recommend PET | TAO Comfort.
Comfort contains yucca, boswellia, MSM, meadowsweet, cornus, licorice, ginger and manganese. It not only helps with arthritis, but discomfort from injuries or overexertion.
In fact, Comfort works so well both Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron use it post-surgically in their clinics when pet parents wish to cut back on pharmaceuticals (or avoid meds altogether) after surgery. Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron offer Comfort as an alternative to Rimadyl.
Comfort is safe to use in combination with other supplements and pharmaceuticals.
Dog Torn Knee Ligament Protocol Step #3: Feed a Blood-Building Diet
Another change you can easily make at home is switching to a blood building diet.
In TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine), two of the classic signs of Blood deficiency are pulled ligament and cranial cruciate ligament rupture (torn ACL).
Therefore, to balance out the Blood deficiency the best diet is a blood building diet.
You can easily make the diet at home in a slow cooker or purchase it pre-made online.
Always discuss any dietary changes you plan to make with your holistic veterinarian.
Dog Torn Ligament Protocol Step #4: Feed Your Dog Liver
According to TCVM philosophy, Liver controls the ligaments and tendons.
The liver does this by nourishing your dog's tendons and ligaments with blood and Yin.
In Chinese medicine, weakness in tendons and ligaments is due to Liver Yin/Blood Deficiency.
Chinese medicine tells us to nourish Liver Yin and Blood to treat tendon and ligament health challenges.
Using the theory of "Like Treats Like" and feeding liver to your dog helps strengthen and tonify the Liver meridian.
The result is balance in the Liver meridian. And by bringing the body back into balance, you'll help heal the root cause and prevent future injury.
You can easily make sure your dog gets top-quality liver every day by feeding PET | TAO Freeze Dried Raw Liver Treats.
As few as 5-6 treats per day will make a huge difference in your dog's Liver meridian. Feeding liver also helps with high liver enzymes and emotional issues.
Dog Torn Knee Ligament Protocol Step #5: Try a TCVM Herbal Blend
Chinese medicine offers many amazing natural for ligament health challenges.
A good example is Jing Tang Tendon Ligament Formula.
You need a veterinarian's authorization to purchase TCVM herbs. The reason is here are several different blends to choose from, depending on the pet's individual patterns and deficiencies.
You'll get the best results if you get in in-person examination or telemedicine consultation with a TCVM-trained veterinarian.
