Chi- The Yellow Lab with Hot Spots

Lab With Hot SpotsThis gorgeous lady lab is Chi, pronounced “shy”. When we first met her, she was most definitely a shy girl, very nervous and a little bit uncertain. She had been re-homed at the age of 11 simply because her previous fur parents were unable to give her the care or love she needed. After finding her perfect forever home, her new mom went to work completely overhauling her diet and lifestyle. Chi went from a dry, grain-filled kibble diet to a dehydrated raw and now a raw diet. She transition slowly but well. She began to get some exercise as well and was socialized with her new fur moms other pups. In addition she began to get adjusted. Chi had a horrible hot spot on her paw that was big, red, hot, and oozy. She constantly licked and it never had a chance to heal. While her previous owners dismissed the wound, her new mom knew she could do more and thought perhaps it was more of a nerve issue than anything else. She couldn’t have been more correct. Through regular adjustments, Chi spent less time wearing a cone and began to leave her paw alone for longer periods of time and it was able to heal. Though it took a few months, Chi’s paw is entirely healed and she leaves it alone now. Her energy levels are through the roof, she’s openly greets visitors when they come over rather than hiding in her kennel, and she’s overall a much friendlier and happier dog. We are so happy she was re-homed, especially in her golden years, and even happier that her new mom wanted to make them the best years possible.
