Today Snickers had a chiro adjustment. He said she looked good, a rib was a little off and adjusted and a vertebre at her withers. Hips and hocks looked good. She has had a couple massage sessions too already.

Today she also had a flexion test. After we trotted off she was limping on her right hind for a few strides. Never is lame other than that hind end coordination thing at times. She has developed lots of muscle and has improved since last year. It was mentioned that some stifle exercises may help, but it just also may be her.

Snickers a year ago.....



Snickers today....

Ok, not sure to continue this thread or create a new one.....

Had a chiro out....Snickers had a rib poking out and a vertebre in her withers adjusted. Other than that, he said she looked great, good solid build. Did a flexion test and she did limp off in the trot on her rt hind a few steps. Questioning dx as a loose stifle? It doesn't lock, but she just seems uncoordinated with that leg at times. I will bring this up to the vet next time she is out....just wondering if anyone has experience with a loose stifle?

It really looks like she is off either in the hawk or up in the hindquarters area. Like she is stiff or achey.. Maybe have the chiropractor look at her..
