Brutus is 3 1/2 yrs. old. He is experiencing some pain. We are not sure of the cause. He has had 2 complete veterinarian checkups and we are having x-rays done Friday, 02-01. I have read up on Wobbler's Syndrome and the symptoms don't really match up. Depending on the results of the x-rays, we may be looking for another opinion or a chiropractor. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas for us? We live in Temple, but will drive to Austin if necessary to get care for him. Thanks.

We had to put our 9 yr old female down with Wobblers. She had no sense of her back legs, not very much of her front. She never would have walked again, as we kept her for 5 weeks after it paralized her.
Depending on the xrays, please read up on acupuncture.
The best of luck to Brutus, from Virginia & Apollo

So I found out chiropractic care is illegal in Texas for anything other than humans.
The x-rays were sent to Austin for review, and it appears there could be a few things causing the pain. The suggestion is a CT scan either in Austin or at Texas A&M.

A&M has a great veterinary program, and has helped many. We have a Dane that had a problem with a leg, not like yours, but had really good results with Capital Area Veterinary Specialists. A very caring group with an excellent staff. Maybe they can help, best of luck.

Thank you for the information. We will be getting a 2nd opinion. Our vet has passed the notes to us that a radiologist sent after looking at the x-rays. Simply stated, it could be a few things. Currently Brutus is not experiencing pain but I hate to keep him on Rimadyl.

Chiropractic care is very legal in Texas. In fact, I took my Teddy to a veterinarian who specialized as a doggie chiropractor and she is awesome.

Go to see Dr. Tracy Davenport at Love Pet Hospital on Brodie Ln. She specializes in Acupuncture and Chiropractic medicine.
