Customer Question

Hello, Pearl. Our Goldendoodle has, we believe, a pinched nerve in her back which is causing her a great deal of pain when she twists her body in excitement or turns too fast. She is currently on pain pain meds and muscle relaxers, but we are thinking a dog chiropractor may be a better answer for her needs. What say you?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Jolene is roughly 8 years old and quite active before this happened about a year ago.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jolene?
Customer: I do not believe so other than we believe she hurt herself jumping in the air which she loved to do before she hurt her back.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi, this is Dr. Gabby.

I have been a vet for 18 years but I also do animal chiropractic and acupuncture for the past 8 years.

It works great and is a nice option when Western medicine does not help.

I can help you find one if you would like.
