Katie The Rottie & Her Arthritis

Rottie Arthritis

It’s about time that we talk about this little girl…what can we say, Katie is a lovebug and then some more. She is a hurricane Katrina rescue and is loved so immensely you’d never know she was homeless for some time. Being from the South, you may think that Katie liked to take her time and live life on the slow side, but you’d be wrong. Katie could keep up with the best of them in her day, and looked good doing it! So when she started to slow down this past winter, her fur mama got worried, this wasn’t the Katie she knew. Stairs, cars, and even walks started to become difficult and sometimes unmanageable. Katie had resigned to staying on one level and sleeping, a lot. It made her family sad to see her in pain, so they decided to look into more options for their girl. Now Katie does have significant arthritis and takes supplements and medicine to help manage any discomfort from the inflammation, but they just weren’t cutting it alone. After her first few adjustments, Katie began doing the stairs again, quickly. Jumping up and down, going on longer walks, and wanting to play were all part of her normal routine again. Even when she had a bit of a setback from a move to a house with A LOT of stairs, Katie bounced back with a change in her care plan and her daily routine. She smiles from ear to ear when she gets adjusted and of course makes our mom happy as a clam to see her living life without pain or discomfort. With each adjustment, Katie has improved, and she always loves the extra belly rubs she gets during “Katie time”.
