You could also give him a kelp supplement or tablets at meal time. According to D. C. Jarvis, M. D. In his book Folk Medicine, researchers at Cornell Univ. Found that broken bones healed 20% faster when supplemented with kelp. They found that kelp raised the calcium level of blood.
Additionally, you could give him a comfrey supplement, or better yet, the homeopathic form of comfrey, known as Symphytum. The comfrey plant has been known for centuries as Knitbone, for its aid in healing of bones. Give away from food and store the container away from odors such as cooking or toiletry odors. Avoid excessive handling of the little pills before giving themto your dog.
