That's an interesting point, Lisa.

I was thinking that if the leg weakness is a pinched nerve (which I do think it is) with the Lyme disease contributing that it might be easier to develop an appropriate treatment for the pinched nerve if the Lyme isn't confounding the problem. It's the analytical part of me not wanting to change too many parameters at once. grin

You'll know by the response to the chiropractic adjustment if it made a significant difference or not. The lyme could have done something to how the joint is working (inflammation), which made it go wonky (out of alignment), so it could even be both!

BUT, you have to treat in a way that makes sense to you, I get that!

True that you should do things that make sense. But it's helpful to get other points of view. And we're getting big into "matrix type" experiments to gather information quickly with less testing so sometimes you have to let go of the "change one thing at a time" thought process.

I try to attack each piece from several different directions at the same time (say body work with supplements). Often, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole (if I got that saying right!). With my dogs at least, I gave up on the completely logical thinking - it didn't work with them wink

Well, I am seeing quite an improvement in Aodhán's energy levels over the past week. She and Caleb were out for a little Chuck-it session this afternoon and she was much livelier than she was a week ago. And no signs of favoring the rear leg or knuckling. thumbup However, I had to stop the play session because Caleb started bleeding where his tooth was extracted. No Chuck-it for him for another week or so, I think. We'll have to concentrate on obedience work to wear him out. Aodhán looked quite put out that we were going in and not going to play any more. fetch

We're still going to get the C6 checked so we can be sure we've got the Lyme under control.

And I'm going to arrange for a consult with a clinic in a nearby town that does chiro and acunpunture after the 4th of July. Would do it sooner, but I'm going to have a house full of company for the 4th and need the time before to get ready. And I want to be able to go the consultation, not just send DH. That pretty much limits the time to a Saturday.

Boy, I wish I could retire and not have to go to work every day. laugh

Aodhan's Massachusetts fanclub is cheering her on!! Chuck-it for Caleb and Aodhan sounds like a great way to celebrate her feeling better. Good for you for following up on the C6 and Lyme's. Grimmi and I are sending continued positive thoughts sweet Aodhan's way! smile

Fantastic report on how well she is responded to the doxy!

Ideally the C6 is run near the beginning of treatment, and then again later. It is part of what determines on how long to treat.

I hear you about being able to retire just to keep up with the dog stuff, etal smile

DH told me that Aodhán was very active today. The weather was pretty mild (wish I wasn't stuck at work) and she and Caleb spent a good part of the day playing in their yard.

This evening, I took Caleb out for a walk and some obedience work. He needed the mental exercise to calm him down a bit. When I got back, DH told me that Aodhán was obviously mad that I took Caleb out and not her. So I had to get her glow in the dark Chuck It ball and take her out for a short session. Rather funny watching the ball coming back, because it was dark enough that I could only see the ball but not her. She's snoozing now with a little grin on her face. Probably because she got to go play ball and Caleb had to stay inside.

We have a consultation set up for 2 weeks from Friday at a chir/acupuncture clinic. I was trying for a bit sooner, but they're not open every day of the week and this time fit best into my work schedule.

Hope that with the Lyme treatment and some treatment to help a possible pinched nerve that she'll really be back to her old self again.

crossedfingers Everything that I have is crossed that the combo of Lyme treatment and the Friday appointment will really set Miss Saucy back to feeling spunky again. Glow in the dark Chuck It sounds fun for her and Caleb! fetch Johanna, Grimm and I are sending good thoughts and vibes for Aodhan's specialist visit on Friday!

The ball moving without seeing the dog sounds really bizarre and must have been cool to watch! I am so happy she is feeling so much better. I am of the mindset that it is often better to wean off of doxy a bit than to stop cold turkey, since it can also be an antiinflammatory, but I think that is certainly not a common thought.

Very exciting to hear about the upcoming appointment too - excellent news, hope it goes well! I have started Max with a new chiro that is closer, since he doesn't handle car rides so well anymore, and he's lovin' it. Need to work the acupuncture in there too!
