I have an active 8 year old ****zu-poodle cross that started limping 3 months ago. She could have easily injured it as she is a jumper/leaper/run as fast as she can kinda dog. I've had x-rays and was told she would heal up but she is not and it is starting to affect her happiness. I am considering going to a pet chiropractor and wonder if anyone has tried this?

Yes, yes, yes...I have used regular chiropractic care for my dogs since 2001. I believe that it's one reaon I've not had terrible joint problems in my dogs as they've aged (have alo used joint supplements).
When I adopted my pup, that was one of the first things I did, was take her to the chiro, who found all sort of the thing misaligned, but after a few visits, she is maintaining adjutments. She had a couple pelvic surgeries after that, so I will continue with tune-ups to help avoid problems down the road.

I had Standard Poodle that loved to jump a lot and had a limb which I thought
was landing the wrong. He was dues for check up and I found out he had Lyme disease which can made a dog limb. Has your been checked for this recently?

bmckay, yes, I've had both shelties and cattle dogs treated, usually with excellent results (one total disaster), BUT you need to find the best chiropractor you can.

Yes and I was not happy at all, it did nothing as far as I could tell. But I would recommend it as a try anyway. Different things work for different dogs. My OH swears by his treatments. He's sort of an old dog. :)

The practitioner does make a big difference. I have three different ones that I can choose in this area, and they all give slightly different results, with one someone that I prefer not going to, only because he misses things that the others address.
