Animals have been a part of my life since I was a little girl, and now having my own family, I could not imagine not having pets. As a result we have two cats and a dog, all of whom are very loved by me and my son.
Our little dog, Cody is very sweet. He is a mutt with Dachshund being part of the mix. He is long and low to the ground but with a heavier body structure. His purpose in life is to love everyone and to make them happy. He greets each person with enthusiasm and joy, no matter who they are.
>He loves to run and play and as a result he hurt his back and was paralyzed in the hind quarters. He would pull himself along with his front legs. He could not potty without difficulty. It was so hard to see and many tears were shed. We took him to the vet with the thought that he may have to be put down. I said that I go to a chiropractor when my back hurts so why couldn’t my dog. My vet was in agreement and sent me to Claudia. I did not even know there was such a thing as an animal chiropractor until that moment.
Cody started to see Claudia twice a week due to his paralysis. As time went on and improvements were noted, appointments were decreased slowly and now we are down to once a month. Things really began to change after the sixth visit. It was like a switched turned and he was off. He is still wobbly and weak in the back end but he is back to happy again. He can take walks and no issues with going to the bathroom.
Claudia’s time, energy, knowledge and gentle hands have made the world of difference in Cody’s quality of life. I cannot thank her enough for what she has done for my family, both the two and four legged members.
