Background

A life of racing left Tygon, a 7 year old Greyhound, with shoulder and back problems. His pet parent, Patrice G., looked to chiropractic care to give Tygon some relief.

Patrice tells Tygon's story:

"Tygon is an retired racing greyhound that started to have problems with his shoulders and back about a year after we adopted him. After doing some research, it appears that he had a collision during a race. Collisions on the track are very violent, often flipping the dogs end over end. Tygon was not seriously injured and was able to finish the race but this is where we believe his problem originated. After consulting the vet, we decided to try a dog chiropractor instead of more invasive procedures. I was very skeptical about it but it has worked wonders on him. Today, he sees the chiropractor a couple times a year. This keeps him happy and pain-free so he can be his goofy self."
