Mas Started Chiro Treatments!
 
A couple of weeks ago we got in to see the local chiropractor who is very well known and respected in this area. A while back I spoke with his vet as the accupunture no longer seemed to offering my boy the relief it once had. So we decided to give chiro a shot and I must say that I am happy to report and see that he is responding well.

Mas has had 2 treatments and goes in for another one on Saturday. During the second trip, Dr. Chiro said that she felt increased flexability in the L 6-7 area. This was good to hear but the topper was when we came home and I saw Mas do this:

I realized then that he had not been able to shift his leg over his head like this for some time now. This was huge for me to see him do this and generally seem like he is more comfortable!

Not offensive here at all...after all, mine do the same thing but Nadi is a slurper (Eeeewwwwww!! )

Glad to see Mas is feeling better https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...RL%%/smile.gif

I agree it is beautiful! My last dog Ginger had severe spondylosis so she could not even come close to that position. I would have been thrilled to see that too!

Yeah it's the little things that once I took for granted that he could do that make me smile when I see him doing them now. I just love Mas's cheering squad in this section!!

No worries Angel...he just got old!

Chicagocanine, sorry to hear about your Ginger.
