Re: Chiro Again?

Yeah, I thought about that too when she was a bit slower coming up the stairs after one of our potty breaks yesterday. Sometimes I honestly don't know what to do with her (in more ways than one). I'll probably end up calling the vet early next week (I don't have time to pick up the meds til next week anyway) and seeing if I can get her in on Saturday next weekend. What a lovely Birthday present that will be! Considering how much she dislikes going.

Re: Chiro Again?

I think that they are masters at compensating, and misalignments can be taken care of *much* more easily if you address them as they occur, rather than letting them settle in, and have the rest of the body compensate. I know it's a pain, but proactive, at least in my book, always pays off in the long run.

Re: Chiro Again?

Agreed. I much prefer to be proactive as well.

I actually think her back's been bothering her since March when I had her hips X-rayed. She was sick with SIBO at the time and was slow to get into the car. I thought hips then but now I think it could have been her back. So off to the vet we shall go again. I hope it works this time.

Re: Chiro Again?

I hope it works too....

if they had her under anesthesia for the xrays, that could have misaligned her?

Re: Chiro Again?

Nope, no anesthesia for the X-rays. She may not like what the vets do, but she's the type that just puts up with it. No sedation of any type was used for the films. Plus she was 'ouchy' before the X-rays were taken.

Re: Chiro Again?

What a good girl to be so patient with the xrays.

Hope you find a way to make her less ouchy.

Re: Chiro Again?

Took fuzzy to the dog park yesterday to play. I tried to keep it easy on her to avoid hurting her back. But Risa only has one speed--FAST--so it was tough. I tried to play light fetch with her but no matter how short the throw was she took off like a bolt anyway. She also spent time running full out after other dogs which I had no control over.

I gave her a Deramaxx with dinner last night to try and prevent soreness today. Didn't work at all. She's definately slow up the stairs again.

Called the vet. Fortunately the chiropractic vet is in this Saturday so we've got an appointment at 9. I will bring a ton of treats and hope the adjustment works better this time.

Re: Chiro Again?

Keeping my fingers crossed that this does the trick.

Have you ever tried any cetyl myristoleate for her?

Re: Chiro Again?

I haven't. She actually doesn't take any supplements right now. I did consider starting some gluco/chondroit but if it's not a bone/joint issue I don't know that it would help much. Does the cetyl myristoleate work more for bone/joint issues or soft-tissue stuff? Ris is raw-fed so she probably gets some from her foods (since it's found in connective tissue) though not likely in high amounts.
