Aches & Pains

I spent the weekend having a blast at the Regionals volunteering.  While there I took advantage of the wonderful price & had both Tate & Kort looked at by the doggie chiropractor.  I knew Tate was having some issues, he has really slowed down in the last month, he still has spurts of crazy fast running, but after laying down for awhile I have really noticed how slowly he is moving.  I knew something was up with his shoulder as he is having trouble getting on the bed, but found out there is more going on.
His right elbow is quite badly arthritic as well as his left pastern. 
I started both boys on a joint supplement a couple of months ago so I am happy I did.
It is so hard to see Tate aging, 10 years has gone by in a blink, it scares me.
Hopefully he can stay pain free as I do not want to put him on pain meds. 
Sarah is trained in doggie massage so I am also going to set up regular appts for him to have that done as well.
Poor Tater dog :(

Try homeopathy--it's amazing what it can do!

It is so hard to see them slowing down and getting older. It's good you know what is going on and you are doing the right thing for him.
