Funny, I was just thinking we hadn't had an update from you, about an hour ago

Re: Scoliosis


Fingers crossed something gets done quickly and gives G some relief and therefore you too Elaine.

Silly Q probably - had G injured his back before he went in for his toe op?

Re: Scoliosis


Not that I am aware of Angie. Its a 6 to 8 month wait for the op'. I have him booked in to see an Ostiopath tomorrow morning. He has been busy telling everyone that I am sending him to the vets because the Ostiopath also does dogs, hence I managed to get him booked in with her quickly. Dont know why I didnt think of her before but here's hoping she can also help.

Re: Scoliosis


Hey positive news. Does the surgeon think that will resolve it?

So now G is going to the dogs along with you.

Good news about the osteopath - I'm a believer! Dogs 'n' all.

Re: Scoliosis


Well G went to see the vet this morning, or the torture queen as a fellow dog walker calls her lol.
She was absolutely disgusted that they are making G wait so long for an operation and about how long they have simply left him in this condition.
She gave him a deep tissue massage, he said it was very painful but he had expected it to be so. She wanted to give him accupuncture but G asked her to "hold off" on that, he's a sceptic about such things and it also a big jessy when it comes to needles. He does feel tender after the massage but does seem more up beat if that makes sense.
He goes back to see her in 10 days and then she's going to stick the needles in him.

Re: Scoliosis


Glad the visit went well, even though it hurt and left him tender he probably feels like at least something has been done towards improvement.

Re: Scoliosis


I'd also vote for the acupuncture. You don't actually feel the needles at all ..... or shouldn't!
