Becca and her Seizure Resolution

Becca here is pretty much one of the most adorable rescue pups we have ever seen. She has captured the hearts of all those who come across her shaggy self and she’ll pretty much do anything for some extra cuddles. Becca started coming to us because she had been limping terribly on her front leg for no apparent reason. Come to find out she had also be a victim of several seizures and bad ear infections.

 

Now if you’ve read any of our articles regarding chiropractic and how it can provide relief for ear infections and even seizures, you might wonder if these also improved when she started to get adjusted. Not only did all of her issues improve, but the limping also disappeared and the seizures haven’t happened in almost nine months, the only change being the added regular chiropractic care. Becca does not take any medication for seizures, she is not on anything for her ears, and her limping is completely gone.

 

She is a very active pup with her sister Abby, and she certainly loves her long walks at the outdoor mall. Her mom never dreamed that something as simple as getting her adjusted would provide such relief to some seriously long-term problems. Now when Becca’s ears appear to flare up or her gait seems a little off, her mom calls and gets her in before it becomes a more chronic problem. Becca’s health is maintained in an alternative manner and we are elated that her fur mom has such faith in this eastern approach to health!

Bella the Lab and Her Wiggly Hips and Limping

bellalofquistBella is a beautiful hazel-eyed girl that was really struggling with limping. Not that she didn’t enjoy being a puppy, but she wasn’t really acting like one. She seemed to come up lame fairly regularly and walk as if her hips were really giving her trouble. It started to worsen to where she really didn’t play for longer than a few moments, when she did she would limp afterward, and was more inclined to snuggle than go get crazy with her best gal pal Regalo. Seeing as Bella was only a few months over a year old, her fur mama was worried that something else was going on, perhaps hip dysplasia or worse, despite her xrays showing nothing wrong. That’s when she decided to give chiropractic a try.

 

Bella was an absolute doll at her first visit. She came in, smiled, and instantly made herself at home next to her mom. Her gait was a little off, and quite wiggly. Now we understand some pups have varying degrees of “wiggly” in their normal walk, but for Bella it seemed a bit too much. She was really thrusting her back legs forward and almost appeared slightly lame. A slight limp was definitely present. Upon closer examination it was realized that Bella had a lot of structural instability going on in both her spine but also in her pelvis. This was good news because it indicated that perhaps Bella could be helped through chiropractic after all!

 

After her first adjustment Bella had already begun to show signs of improvement. She was walking a bit straighter, with confidence, and she had less sensitivity in her spine. After a few more visits Bella was like a new pup. She was playing, initiating the play, keeping up with her playmate, and even showing her up at times. Bella had become a confident girl and was feeling great, she could move the way her body was intended to move, without restriction, and because of this was able to really go back to being a puppy. We love Bella and are so happy she decided to give us a try!!
