I took Riley to a holistic/chiro vet about 3 months ago just to have a baseline exam - he has a follow up exam in a couple of weeks. He plays hard (and Murphy usually does his best to run Riley into trees), works hard (agility) and we've been doing a lot more scootering lately so I'm curious to see how he's holding up. I'd rather catch something sooner rather than later...

I haven't, but only because I've not yet found one who is close enough to here to be reasonable for dogs without any real problems. Chiropractic has helped me a great deal and I'm absolutely a believer.

When Denali was going through her cancer - I took her to chiro visits as a tripod. They always seemed to relax her the day of the appointment and then the few days she had a lot more energy. I think she found them refreshing!

Yep my dogs go frequently to a vet who specialise in animal chiro, even if there is nothing obviously wrong with them.

My dogs see a Chiropractor pretty regularly. I like them to see her at least 2 or 3 times per year, and if they have a warm spot somewhere (indicating pain or tenderness) or are acting off, I'll take them to see her also. Dogs don't know that chiro is supposed to help them, so when they start acting back to normal or better than normal after a visit, I know it's worked.

Which chiro do you take yours to? Just curious. PM me if you'd like.

I have a couple agility friends whose dogs are only running today because of an excellent local chiropractor (their words). If I ever need one, that is where I will go. Haven't had need of one yet. I do a lot of stretching/massage with my dogs as well as warmups so hopefully won't for a long, long time.

How does one find a Chiro for a dog? Ever since Harleigh injured her back I've been thinking about taking her to one, but haven't had much luck. Maybe it is because I don't know what to look for.

Shai, can you share some of the stretches that you do?

My dogs have gone to the chiro for 12 yrs now, mainly for wellness exams and minor adjustments. They run hard and they are hard on themselves and to ensure they have long sound careers, they go every month or so depending on how much we are training and trialing.
Who at 27 months of age and limited trialing (launched off the teeter, so reworking that) has seen the chiro only twice. But once we start trialing on a regular basis, it will be a min of once a month.
