Allergy Season

Allergy Season

Spring is finally here! And with spring comes allergies!  Do you have a dog or cat with seasonal allergies? I do for the first time.  I adopted a 7-year-old Weimaraner last summer, and didn’t realize her allergies were so intense!  When we first brought her home, she still must have had some residual medication in her system, because it wasn’t so bad until a few days later. Her eyes were so red and she was scratching all the time.

Have you ever gone to a chiropractor?  I do on a regular basis, and it has been a life-saver!  I started having vertigo a few years ago, and have gone to doctors and allergists.  They only prescribed medicine to help with the dizziness but had no solutions to get rid of it.  Then I went to a special chiropractor that adjusted the vertebrate in my neck, and my vertigo is gone!  For two years I lived with vertigo, and it was terrible.
