I have chosen this career because I love the contact bond working with animals. I too have experienced a pet with mobility issues as like other pet owners. One of my dogs suddenly stopped walking at age 10 and when taken to a local vet I was told she would never walk again and to have her euthanized. With the help of Animal Chiropractic and Canine Massage, she was up and walking, swimming, and playing around. She exhibited signs of Degenerative Myelopathy, criss-crossing of her back legs, knuckling, loss of balance and limited mobility. The Vet diagnosed her with DM. I understand the struggles, costs, and the dedication to helping her to live a good life. She had an extra 5 years with the family. (RIP Ciera.) We continue to adopt other animals into our family. we recently rescued a German Shepherd/Bernese mixed male at 5 months. Bear also needed special medical needs and thrived with Animal Chiropractic, Canine Massage, Canine Hydrotherapy , Exercise program services. It is my passion to help those to have a better life. We work with you and your vet to help your pets, with the help of these services.
