Low Back Pain in Dogs?

Determining where the root problem in a dog can be difficult.  They can’t explain to you what they are feeling and they don’t have fingers to point where it specifically hurts.

The thing is an animal chiropractor doesn’t adjust horses, an animal chiropractor adjusts joints.
