This is the Boron Solution I use. It is made from Borax and I tsp = 3mg of boron.

boron 16oz, the benefits of the trace mineral boron are all in this bottle, give 1 tsp per day.

This boron is made with the purest distilled water and with no other ingredients. The boron is derived from human-grade borax.

I wrote an article about boron here

About dosages

This Boron calculator for Dogs is based on a liquid form of Boron where 1 tsp is equal to approximately 3mg of Boron. It is recommended to start with the lower end of the suggested range. If the case is severe, then more may be beneficial. However, for prevention and milder cases, it is best to stay within the suggested range.

The effect will not be visible overnight as it takes time for arteritis to build up in a dog’s body and affect their mobility. It may take 1-3 months to see improvements. If there are no visible changes, then the dosage may need to be increased.

Get the diet right!

Other factors, such as diet, will also affect the outcome and results. A raw food diet is highly recommended for dogs. I see a tremendous difference in raw fed dogs compared to kibble fed when it comes to recovery from arthritis and many other health issues.

New to raw feeding?

If you do not feed raw and need help with it, I wrote a book about how to get started on a raw food diet that anyone can follow. It will take the fear out of getting started and so far I have yet to see anyone reverse their decision and go back to commercial dog food. The benefits are too significant to be ignored.

This is the World’s Longest and Largest Observational Study into raw fed dogs and cats. Thousands of dogs and cats are participating. We will follow these dogs for their entire life and report and document their lifespan and health.
