If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
I am new to this, so here it goes. My 9 yr old boxer Tess started out many months ago knuckling over her paw on her left rear leg. At first I thought she had injured herself. Unfortunately that was not the case. My vet did some neurological testing and concluded that she had neuropathy. I also had her xrayed and it showed some arthritis and some calcification of the spine. Wanting to do all I could for her he advised me if I believed in chiropractors and holistic vets he referred me to one.
When I took Tess to the vet she had some chiropractic adjustments and a few accupuncture treatments. I really didn't see a big improvement. It was expensive and I was unable to take her as much as the vet wanted me to. She also had me put Tess on Glycoflex 3, Duralactin, Standard Process supplements- Neurotrophin PMG, and Super EFF. Also she had me use Young Living Oils On Tess. I also massage her. I really at this point don't know if these things help or not. Her back legs are getting weaker and she falls more now. I have placed rugs all over my house strategically so she has a better footing and she has learned to use them.
I just have so many questions. Has anyone else had any experience with these things? I also wonder if the vet I'm going to is doing the accupuncture treatments correctly ,etc.
Also, I am wanting to get Tess a cart. They are very expensive and I was wondering if any of you have the Walkin' Wheels. If so do they work well? Does anyone know where I could find good used ones?
I would really appreciate any replies. I love my boxer dogs (Tess has a litter mate Missy )very much and will do whatever I can for them.
You need to check out the neuro board and the one for Walkin' Wheels. The spinal problems you describe will fit right in at neuro!
