It’s been a great few days to be an animal chiropractor. Over the weekend I had the opportunity to adjust 14 dogs, several of whom were 10-12 years old.
I always ask the client to call or text within the first 24 hours – sooner if there is a concern, but certainly to give me an update after the animal’s first adjustment.
One was Wiley, a 12 y.o. mixed breed. He’s a big ol’ love bucket who looks like a cross between a Rottweiler and Pit….but sweet as can be. His owner said he was having a hard time getting up and moving around.
After one adjustment, I got this, “Wiley is doing amazing! J. is convinced. His limp was WAY better that first and second day. Stairs are easier for him. He’s happy and playful.”
Liberty is a 12 y.o. Collie. He’s showing signs of age, but after his first adjustment his owner reported he got down easier, breathed deeper, and was wide awake at times that he would have normally be asleep, and seemed to be in less pain.
Another 12 y.o. Border Collie/Sled Dog, was able to jump onto the bed and just seemed happier. There’s more to it than that, but that was after one adjustment.
Then there was Aspen, the 10 y.o. Yellow Lab. I asked his owner for an update, “He is doing great! I can’t believe how good he feels.”
I am so proud of the results we get with dogs of all ages. It’s easy to get a big head and act like you’re the healer, but the reality is that the healing comes from the life inside. I just remove the interference.
I have such a heart for dogs of all ages, but especially the seniors. They have such a hard time telling us that they are in pain, but when we apply our chiropractic technique we find interference that is keeping them from functioning and adapting optimally. We gently correct their subluxations and allow their bodies and minds to function better. It’s so wonderful to watch.
Yes, they will eventually cross the bridge, but if we can make their lives better, with less pain, more energy, and greater function, until that time, it’s so worth it.
I have this video that I made about animal chiropractic. I encourage you to watch it and let me know if I can be of service to you or a family member, be that a 2-legged or 4-legged one. It takes a few seconds to load because I can’t figure out how to load it to YouTube. Any help would be appreciated.
If you have any questions about animal chiropractic, costs, procedures, expectations, etc, let me know. My number is 719-330-2501.
