Not about Aodhán - she's not due for another appointment 'til next month. But DH and I went to the chiropractor today for a first consultation and treatment.

He did some major adjustments on my neck and back and - wow - what a difference. Did a range of motion evaluation before we started and I had about 35% in my neck - where you tilt your head forward and touch your chin to your chest. After he did the adjustment - I can touch chin to chest and only feel a little pull in the neck muscles.

Adjusted my back as well and I was able to spend the afternoon in the workshop without a bad backache when I was done. It's a little sore, but he said it may feel like I had been to the gym afterwards.

DH had a few adjustments, but they're going to concentrate on acupuncture for him because it will do more good for his particular issues. He'll get a first acupuncture treatment next week as we kind of ran out of time at the appointments and there was another patient waiting.

I'm impressed.

No wonder Aodhán feels so much better since we've been doing this for her.

Johanna, I'm so glad that you had such a positive experience. It can make such a huge difference, and it sounds like you and DH found just the right person for the both of you. Great news!

Again - not about Aodhán - she's doing great as far as her back and not due for an adsjustment for another couple of weeks.

DH had his first acupunture visit last Thursday and is already seeing some differences with just the one treatment. He has some gastric issues that he hopes this will help. The doctor thinks he might even be able to get him off the meds he is on right now. And that would really please my DH, who hates having to take pills and really prefers more homeopathic medicine when its a viable option
We'll see if things continue to improve, but right now it looks encouraging.

Aodhán says hi and she'd be feeling really great if not for the sore she's developed on a rear foot due to excessive licking after I took a tick out from between two toes. Talk about a nasty place for the tick to hide. I never would have found it if I hadn't seen her licking her foot so much. She's not too happy with me right now because I'm making her wear a cone for a few days so her foot can heal. And I've been making her take Bug Off with her meals because I've found 3-4 on her inspite of preventative stuff. She doesn't like it, but will eat it as long as it's mixed in with some Primal grind.

I hate ticks. It's funny, until the last year or so I never found ticks on her but would find them on Rica. And I don't find any on Caleb. Wonder if the nasty buggers find it easier to get on her because she's a bit more sedentary than Caleb, who is on the go all the time. She's content to find a shady spot and chill out for part of the day - especially when it's hot.

Wonderful DH news! When Indy was getting acupuncture many many moons ago, it helped her digestion the most. I hope the same thing happens for your DH!

And those darn ticks. You know how I feel about them mad your sedentary theory makes sense to me.

I hope that the Bug Off works - ticks, worse than cockroaches it seems frown

I hope the Bug Off works, too.

Aodhán came up to me yesterday morning after she had her breakfast and gave me a good dose of garlic breath sick (and I like garlic - just not that much all at once)- so this needs to be worhtwhile. rofl

We had been using Advantix and last year it seemed to work fairly well. This year not so much, although as I said, I'm not finding much of anything on Caleb. I think I found one walking on his leg after we had walked through grass on the side of the road that hadn't been cut in a while. We might try Frontline and see if it does any better, but I already had plenty of Bug Off here so figured it was worth a try.

The vet wanted me to try a new product - I don't remember what - but it was really expensive just for one dog, let alone 2.

I have been experimenting with a spray here. I didn't like using Advantix (okay, only used it once), but now with Advantix II, I'm even more leery. Garlic and sulphur makes max pee, so that's out for us. Very frustrating!

I don't think the Bug Off is bothering Aodhán in that way. She just doesn't like the taste. First time DH gave it to her, he said she gave him a look like "What the heck is this in my food?" She ate it, but it wasn't really with gusto.

Caleb doesn't care - he eats anything you give him

Glad that they will both eat it, and can, even if she isn't exactly exuberant about it!

Aodhan says hi and she's out of the cone. She's not bothering her toes anymore.
She's due for a visit to the chiropractor next week, then to her regular vet for her annual exam. We'll probably do a thyroid check then, too, since her levels have been a little up and down this past year.

It was actually pleasant out yesterday when I got home from work, so we went out to play a little Chuck-it - a very welcome change after last weekend when it was 100+ °F. Not a weekend to spend much time outside.

I forgot to mention that the attachment is a video clip. She was having a grand time and leaping for her ball. One shot I wish I had gotten, but didn't have the camera at the time, was all four feet off the ground, with her body horizontal to the ground. Pretty good for a gal who was knuckling under on the one back foot this time last year.

DH told me that our grandson was playing with Caleb earlier that day and Aodhán wasn't too interested at the time. It may have been a little too hot for her earlier in the day because she was yodeling when I picked up the launcher to take them out and play. She actually did more fetching than Caleb. He was content to stand around chewing on his ball most of the time we were out. But he was one tired puppy later that night. Tyler wore him out during the day.
