Erik at the Vet

 Good morning,

Catherine and I took our eleven year old Erik to the vet this week to find out why he was saying "ouch!" when his face was touched.  We thought it might have been a toothache, but weren't sure.

A trip to our vet is a road trip, but it is worth it. 

Erik can be intimidating to other dogs and people because of his size, but he's a big bundle of love.  We waited outside so he wouldn't scare anyone else waiting inside.

The resolution of Erik's problem was his neck being out of alignment.  After a chiropractic adjustment, he is feeling much better and no longer says "ouch!" when his head is touched.

 Our pups love coming to our vet.  He has the BEST cookies!

Great that he is well now. Nice road trip as it is always nice to get out of the house.

I don't think we have chiropractors for dogs in Japan... Actually I need one right now because our doxie is limping around. The vet said it was probably back problems (common in doxies) and she gave us some pain killers... Hopefully a couple of slow days will help...?
