As animal chiropractors, we frequently see dogs in pain but the symptoms can often be difficult for we humans to notice as dogs are masters at hiding their pain. In this article, we will discuss why dogs don’t show pain, what are some signs, and what we can do to help.

Luxating patella, or “floating kneecaps,” can be a very painful condition in an animal, potentially requiring surgical intervention.

I’m sure part of it has to do with my profession, as an animal chiropractor people naturally think of me when it comes to back problems.
