Welcome home, Toozer! Get the rest of your sleep out and start feeling better, OK?

I am soooooo glad she is home, AND no terrible news groovy

A couple things to consider - treat with doxycycline anyway, as false negatives can happen with tick tests and a trial of a couple weeks of doxy carry minimal risk considering the consequences of not treating.

Maybe this is spinal nerve stuff that a chiro can tune right up.

Whatever is going on, it's a happy day that she is home!!

Lisa, I know you highly recommend chiro but last year, all of this weird neuro stuff started within a week of her first and only chiro adjustment. I can't help but be a little suspicious (ok, maybe downright scared!) of it now! eek

I just missed a call from my regular vet who was checking in. I will speak with her about doing doxy. A vet tech friend of mine was just talking to me today about false negatives on tick tests!

Sleachy, I can only give Chiro. from the human patient experience. Some times things will actually hurt more after the first adjustment. Part of the reason is the nerves and muscles have gotten use to the bad position now it is correct the muscles are fighting the adjustment. So if the person is qualified you might want to try it again and tell them why you didn't come back sooner.

I am thrilled happyboogie she's home and there was no bad news happyboogie I can understand your frustration with there being no "real" answers and your hesitation about continuing chiro. I have no advice only that you trust your "gut". You know Tooz the best and know what's best for the 2 of you. I hope she's feeling much better tomorrow!!!! hugging

happyboogie so happy that she is home!
I'm sure she's happy to be home as well and will be feeling better after she sleeps off the meds.
I'm glad they didn't find anything serious.

Big hugs to you and your sweet girl hugging

I may remember that now, if you posted about it - I remember a dog on the board that had a weird reaction and the person unsure about going back. Did you post about that? Am I remembering Toozer? I have a memory of the thread, but not the dog.

....but what that tells me is that chiropractic should be able to resolve this. Either that practitioner, or a different one.

Like Jen said, you have to do what you are comfortable with. However, if chiro nudged the bones in a position that causes these episodes, it's probably the only thing that can nudge it back.

Is she standing better now in the hind end? Max stands like that, it's his low back frown I hope that Toozer was just standing that way because she was feeling wobbly.
