A couple of years ago one of my weiner dogs blew a disk in her back. She was totally paralized from the mid back to her tail. She was in a tremendous amount of pain, couldn't walk and had no bladder control. The vet wanted to put her down, but I was told by a friend to take her to a "Doggie" chiropractor her in town which I did. I was the most skeptical person that you could imagine, but anything was better than having the dog put to sleep. Long story short, 4 visits to the chiropractor and some accupuncture (which I also very skeptical about) and the dog was 100% back to normal. That was two years ago and the dog is still running around like a maniac.
