Laz and I walking down the dirt roads.
They've been especially wet and cushy so I though/hoped the different terrain would be good for his hooves to walk on, while still being comfortable
His Right Hind medial sole still shows some bruising as that hoof wall continues to grow down, but not yet hitting the ground. HURRRRRRY up hoof wall (trust me, he's on all supplements, vitamins, hoof lotions and potions to get it to grow..it's time)
On Thursday, we had our 2nd Chiro/Acupuncture visit from the AMAZING Dr. W.
We lurve him
He's cool, humble, SMART and awesome
Did I mention, we like him??
What I like best about him; His quiet ability to listen to the animals.
Also, Laz loves his treatments and stands still and quiet for him.
Above is after the Chiro work, Dr W is putting the Accu needles in Lazaroo.
Then he follows it with a shot of B12 vitamin to help 'keep' the adjustment
He thought Laz was looking really good and was happy.
I am to keep working on stretching out his R Front shoulder to help break up that scar tissue, but he thought it's already looking a bit better.
Then, I had him look at Mason
Masie Pie is 8 yrs old (9 in May) so I thought it couldn't hurt
Dr. W thought his hips were off a little (actually similar to Laz, lol) and adjusted him.
He didn't feel anything bad in his hips otherwise
Mason was a VERY good patient
Dr. W confirmed my suspicions (without me telling him!) that Mason left front leg was hurting him.
Mason has been limping a little, and it's inconsistent. Some days it's there, some days he's fine. For the past month or so, I've stopped throwing his ball/frisbee because he runs with 10000% speed and then slams to stop and it's wearing on his joints.
At any rate, Dr. W found a bit of pain in Mason's left elbow area.
See how below, Mason's face is relaxed...
And here he quickly stopped breathing, shut his mouth and showed signs of "ouch"
Glucousime will be added to his diet, per wondrous Dr. W.
Wagging his tail during his 2 minutes of acupuncture
Can you see his needles? They are the same as the ones used for humans
He has 7 here, and had 2 or 3 near his shoulder/elbow area
We also chit chatted about vaccinations, etc.
He prefers to do Rabies for Dogs (and he's waiting on testing to be released that perhaps we only have to do that once every 5-7 yrs) and for Horses, annually : Rabies, Tetanus, and West Niles combo. They said, "Those three could kill your horse and it's a terrible death."
Something to really consider for Laz coming up...it's the same three my new Vet thinks I should do too.
Laz is clearly benefiting from this extra TLC

Oh, and for those that wanted to see how Laz kicks it in reverse to try to 'sit' on his friend, zoom to 0.37. He does this maneuver all the time, lol
Mason was a bit extra tired after his appointment. He tends to get excited over new things, and I knew it would knock him out a bit. But, later that night, he seemed re-energized and prancey
Pudgie wants to know if I'm going stick pins in him too ;)
Not yet littlest one...
