I love my dog chiropractor, Dr. Brent. Now I have said it, the cat is out of the bag! I would say, he is one of my favorite people on this planet. Why? He is very nice and he makes me feel so good! I have claimed him as my own, and he knows it!
My first adjustment was back in April 2015. I was a bit apprehensive at first but by the end of my first adjustment I was over the wabbit hole happy! Dr. Brent knows exactly what to do with me so I feel like a new dog. I always greet him with open paws, and lots of kisses, and I get very angry if he only adjusts Katie and not me. I give Mom and him a real mean look. They say if looks could kill, they would be dead!
As dogs age, as with humans, the body goes through a lot and often times things fall out of alignment. With me, it took regular adjustments over several months for my body to really be back in top form. Now I only need adjusting every couple months, which is sad for me as I love it so much.
Mom can tell when I need the dog chiropractor as I get slightly crabby, and I walk a bit differently. There is no pain associated with my treatments, the only side effect is I’m really tired out and need a good long nap after Dr. Brent leaves.
If you have a big dog like my sister Katie, no worries. Dog chiropractors are really animal chiropractors and even work on horses! Even Katie is happy to see Dr. Brent when he shows up. She had her first adjustment about a month after I had started my treatment.
We are so lucky, because our dog chiropractor is in our area a lot, which means he can stop by our house and do our adjusting. These days it is very hard for Katie to travel, which makes a home visit all the better!
Katie needs to be adjusted about every three weeks. When she starts to have trouble walking it is the sign to call Dr. Brent. Her adjustments feel so good, she often falls asleep while being worked on. After an adjustment it takes Katie two to three days to fully recover. Those couple of days, her walks are real short, and she sleeps more than usual.
If your dog is real active or perhaps a senior with movement issues, we highly recommend a dog chiropractor. It is not a cure all for every issue a dog may have, but it sure is helpful and your dog will love it! Katie and I are both so grateful Mom lets us get adjusted when we need it. It has really helped improve our quality of life. Getting adjusted gets you back into alignment and ready to tackle the world in correct form once again!
