Do many of you have your dogs adjusted at a canine chiropractor?
I was watching an agility match, and I saw many folks run their dogs over for massage, and I have a friend who frequently gets her dogs adjusted by a canine chirpractor and massaged

I was wondering if many of you do this as well.

My vet has a chiropractor do adjustments for her patients upon request. He gave Tia a free exam the other day, but I have never had her in for an adjustment. He charges $85/treatment.

I take my older boy to the chiropractor. My chiropractor is a DVM, which was important to me. He adjusts him once every-other-month, and we see a world of difference. It was every month when we first started going, but then the chiro said he only needed every-other.
He charges $48 per treatment.

We just started going because Bogey's puppy stomach issues (his gut ached for months on end) caused him to suck it in, which caused him to hunch his back. His pelvis was also a little out of whack. He went once and then went again three weeks later. Appointments are $40, and the chiro is also a DVM, which was also important to me.

Bogey was doing so well after just two appointments, that he doesn't have to go back for 6 weeks and, assuming that he is still okay, he'll just go every other month like Barb's dog.

I am a HUGE fan of chiros for people and doggies alike!

Yes, for the dog and the horses!

Depending on what the issue is, I've found a good chiro can do wonders. However, a bad one can cause problems so be sure to do your research.
