Here is a useful website of vets who practise osteopathy on dogs and horses : Unfortunately they've 'messed with' the site and now it isn't as easy to find vets/osteos by department !

http://www.osteopathe-veterinaire.eu/

Click on "Mod d'emploi" in red.
On the righthand side, under "Tri par mots cléfs", click on "par département"
This will bring up a page with departments on it - just click on the one you want.
There may not be one in your department - you may have to look further afield.

However, this direct link seems to work fine in the Horse section !

Thank you for the link Blaze. I have just found that there is one about 5 minutes from us and our poor old lab is getting so sore in places now..

Celé, 14 on the 1st of May. She was a lot younger here

Still just as beautiful, but a lot more grey!

What a gorgeous girl, Jonzjob - I hope the osteopath makes her feel better. The one in Saumur also does acupuncture and I found it quite astonishing to see our dog visibly relaxing and out of discomfort.

Just got back from the vets and she was very very good.

Poor Celé was quite nervous, she always is after a couple of not nice visits to vets, but after a short while she relaxed and even though the visit was about 1 hour 20 mins she was as good as gold!

The vet told us that Celé has had a headache for a while from perssure from a tight muscle problem. Also problems with the vertibrai in her neck and verious other things too. We have to take it easy with her for a couple of days and she should be feeling a bit better now.

Basically I wish that we had been able to get to see her earlier, but she has only been there since last Octobre. So ta very much for the link, if it had been much earlier then we wouldn't have found her then so the timing was perfect too ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^

Anyone in this area, if you would like the details they are on the web site under Languadoc, but if you need directions then I can give them. It is very easy to find!!

Great news!
Our Guide dog school uses a chap near Bordeaux to check up on all the young dogs, as well as dealing with troubled ones.

Yesterday I watched Dr Lanot check over our 5 month old golden retriever lad, who's a bit of a scaredy-cat when it comes to town centres and traffic (bit of a problem for a wannabee guide dog). It was fascinating to watch him find and deal with stressed areas and the dog adored it. He also prescribed a Bach flower remedy (mimmolus) to help him.
Nice man, totally unpretentious not like some 'specialists' one comes across in hospitals and vetinary hospitals.

I watched our local vet/osteopath treat one of our dogs - he also gave her acupuncture. The relief in the dog was clearly visible and she hasn't had a problem since.

This chap also recommended another vet, Valerie Roger, near Montauban, who also does acupuncture (he doesn't) - thinking it would be nearer if Gershwin needs further work/acupuncture

Just want to thank you Liz for the recommendation. As a result, I've taken Vita to see him today and glad I have, as she has several things going on - couple of locked vertebrae, misaligned pelvis and also some possible residual damage to her liver from being poisoned last year. Hopefully as she's only three all of this can be helped and improved. He was very attentive and caring and we were there for over an hour. She tolerated a lot from him and only turned and looked at him a couple of times when he found a particularly tender spot, but no major anxiety from her. He did a mixture of sacro-cranial osteopathy and "more traditional" manipulation. Obviously only time will tell whether there is an improvement. Certainly I think his patient care is excellent. (As is his English - we started in French, but his English is much better than my French!) :D

Thanks Liz. He said she'll probably be tired and to keep her calm for the next four days. :)) :)) She's bouncing round like a new-born lamb!

I took our 12 year old lab to see Dr Lanot recently. He thought she was in vgc condition overall for her age, but worked on her elbows and manipulated her pelvis which was out of alignment (you could see that as she walked). After a few days rest you could certainly see the difference. She kept up with three young'uns up in the woods on rough ground for over an hour this afternoon, without looking uncomfortable.
