krissy Posted August 20, 2013 Share Posted August 20, 2013 Kili is going to an animal chiropractor tonight. Just curious if anyone else has used one for their hounds. Adjusting backs just kind of makes me nervous. I've been to a chiropractor for myself out of desperation but I never really got to be 100% comfortable about the whole thing. It did seem to help, I will say that. Also, I found I wasn't so nervous about my back being adjusted as my neck. Of course, further adding to the whole thing is that chiropractic is still not totally accepted. I know some doctors recommend it and others definitely do not (mine adamantly does not). Anyway, we're going. Kili has been very not herself for the past week or so. I thought it was another growth spurt because she sometimes gets really quiet and eats less for a little bit. But I've noticed some stuff that kind of stuck in the back of my head, and then last night at agility I became convinced that something is bugging her. Refusing jumps until we lowered them to 8 inches, very slow through the tunnels. Just not right. Our trainer uses this chiropractor and really like her so we will be seeing her tonight and hopefully she can adjust Kili and make her feel better. So, anyone taken their hounds to a chiro? What was it like? Did you go back regularly or only when you felt your hound was off? Do you use a chiro yourself and did that influence your decision or make you more inclined to try it for the hounds?
