Laser and Chiropractic Treatment

My friend Gail, who is a vet with specialized chiropractic skills and her husband Elroy, who handles the laser treatments, stopped by for their monthly visit with us.

I have really long, full ears and dating back to when I was a little puppy, I've had problems with itchiness in my ears. Partly, it's because I have full ears that trap moisture and partly because my brother Owen insists on licking the insides of my ears, which of course puts moisture in there and partly because they get warm and stuff.

I've had various preparations squirted into my ears from the vet, a homeopathy olive oil and garlic preparation (Owen really liked that one), and an ear flush but lately we've been trying out a laser. It's kind of warm and the deep heat seems to relieve most of the itchiness without that icky feeling of stuff running down the insides of your ears that makes me shake my head like in the Exorcist. 

Once Elroy finished "lasering" my ears, it was over 
to my buddy Gail for some adjustments.

A little to the left please...

Yup, that's the spot.

Neck massage.

Checking the other end.

 Shoulders...and we're done :) Bye for now.


  1. You're getting the royal treatment, Sam! I hope the laser helps you out.

    Love ya lots,

  2. Howdy Sam, hope your ears feel better after the laser treatment. All in all it looked like a lovely relaxing time. Take care rollin' buddy. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  3. Sam!
    It is not funny to have itchy ears, right?
    I hope the laser helps you!
    I can see you enjoyed the treatment!
    Kisses and hugs

  4. Aww Sam,
    Hope your ears feel better soon...and that the laser treatment works. Get well soon.
    With love

  6. Sam that laser treatment looks awesome, we just use swimmers ear solution over here to keep our ears nice and dry!
    Oh I need an adjustment that looks nice :)

  7. Hey Sam my friend, You are SO lucky to have the spa treatments. Bet they help make you feel good. Think I would like to try some of that. Mom massages me and I like that a lot. Laser in the ears sounds much better than that liquid stuff that tickles and makes us shake our heads. I am doing very well.
    Thanks for all your support and info.

  8. Hi Sam,
    Man you get treated like a King!!!! We have a little trouble with ears too, only Zoie doesn't want her ears touched! I hope that doesn't turn out o be a big problem!!

  9. That looks very relaxing. I try to get Mum to stick her fingers in my ears and then I let out the biggest sigh in the world! Deccy x

  10. Ha ha ha Tom is the love of my life!!! Zoie is number 2!!!!
    Happy a very close 2 nd tho too!!! It is hard to love one animal more then another don't you think!!!! LOL
