A tiny relapse! Just when you think it's safe to say Nick is doing better..... It seems he was feeling so much better yesterday that he walked on the carpet area too much and visited with his girl friend Casey too much, and today is not quite as good.
Since he was feeling puny this morning wee took him for another "treatment" and he is resting quietly and calmly on his carpet WITHOUT his girlfriend nearby. Poor guy!! He just loves to play and follow her around.
Since I had not heard of chiropractic for dogs nor laser treatments, we talked with the vet and also googled information about it. It seems that “Low Level Laser Therapy stimulates tissue repair through a process of PhotoBioStimulation. Light travels as bundles of energy called Photons. This allows the light to penetrate the surface of the skin without any heating effects or damage to the skin. Photons will only be absorbed by the cells that need help. They normalize injured tissue by activating enzymes. The enzymes trigger chemical reactions in the cells, supplying energy for the cells to take in nutrients and dispose of waste products faster. This promotes natural healing and pain relief.” This above information is from the site http://www.dogrepair.com/low_level_laser.htm and this tells a lot about laser treatments for dogs.
The other treatment Nick gets is chiropractic and I put this you tube link in if you are interested in what it is. www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2nBvLzWc1M
This treatment is also called VOM and information on that can be found on the site below. http://www.vomtech.com/whatis.htm For me it is easier to link you to the information rather than try to explain it.
Anyway, if Nick continues to improve he won’t see the vet until Monday…hope that is the case. Technologically improved medicine sure is costly, but little Nick is very much worth it!
Thanks for letting us share with you about our four legged family member.
