At first I was skeptic of canine chiropractic treatment, but after just two visits with Dr. Shaw, I am a firm believer. My labrastaff, Law, pinched his lower back nerves in February 2022. He was paralyzed for almost a month. He started regaining his mobility between anti-inflammatory/pain meds. As any person knows this is not a permanent solution. I noticed that Law had a huge hump in his back when he walked, and his left foot would constantly roll under. He could no longer go for his 3-mile walks, nor could he run/play because he would be out of breath and struggle. This broke my heart and caused Law to go into depression. I spoke to my veterinarian, and he suggested canine chiropractic treatment. After contemplating, I filled out the online form on Dr. Shaw’s website. She immediately responded and suggested that I have my veterinarian fill out a form. Once my vet did, Dr. Shaw contacted me about Law’s first visit. We spoke a good thirty minutes on Law’s condition. Dr. Shaw reiterated that this is not a onetime treatment and that it may take several and then maintenance. On Law’s first visit she checked his spine for fractures which he did not have any. Dr. Shaw explained what she was doing and then began adjusting Law’s neck and then his pelvis. Law’s face instantly showed relief and I could see my little boy happy. Dr. Shaw checked-in on Law two days later and I explained that I noticed his foot is not rolling under and he is standing much better. We scheduled a second visit with Dr. Shaw wherein she adjusted his neck and upper back. He now can walk with his pup buds doing 4 laps around the elementary school grounds by my home. He is now running and playing fetch with his pup buds. The other day Law jumped in our bed all by himself. He hasn’t been able to do this since before his accident. I instantly had tears of joy knowing that (1) I made the right decision in canine chiropractic; and (2) it all makes sense. As humans we use chiropractic treatment for a healthier lifestyle. I immediately contacted Dr. Shaw about this wonderful break through. She was just as excited as I was. Dr. Shaw’s bedside manner is impeccable. She treats Law as if he was her own. An impeccable bedside manner!! The fact that she checks-in on Law show that she loves what she does, and she truly cares! I am forever grateful! Let the journey continue.

Krypton has severe musculoskeletal problems. He is on a cocktail of prescription medications and supplements but we are always looking to do more to keep him comfortable. He has been seeing Dr. Shaw for the last couple of months for adjustments and laser treatments and we have definitely seen improvement. He is starting to be able to stand and walk more on his own again. We are happy to have her sessions as another prong in his multimodal therapy regimen.

My little dog Lilly is my avid running partner and a bundle of loving energy.  She was only 3, but she was limping and totally not herself.  This went on for over a year.  I took her to the vet two times and then to a very expensive specialist, but they were not able to help her at all.  Finally, we found Dr. Shaw.  Now, thanks to Dr. Shaw, Lilly is running again and her happy self once more.  Thank you so much, Dr. Shaw, for saving my little Lilly and restoring her quality of life!

So thankful to Dr. Melissa Shaw for helping us keep Homer in his best possible condition! Homer works hard and plays hard, and Dr. Shaw makes sure everything stays just where it should be.
Thank you, Dr. Shaw!

Dr. Shaw is amazing! My miniature dachshund, Otto, had been yelping and crying in pain at times when playing with other dogs and this was not normal for him. I brought him to Dr. Shaw and after examining him, she discover that one of Otto’s ribs was out of place, as well as some areas of his spine. The adjustment was quick and painless for Otto and he hasn’t cried or yelped since. This is what doggy post chiropractic bliss looks like. This picture was taken shortly after his adjustment and he is super relaxed and chill. Otto and I highly recommend Dr. Shaw.

Thank you for everything you’ve done for my Oliver. His lower back and ribs are so much better since you’ve been treating him. I can’t thank you enough.

Dr. Shaw is awesome! She took her time to get to know my cat Olive and figured out exactly what adjustments were needed to make her feel comfortable. Olive enjoyed her time with Melissa and showed signs of being relaxed. Dr. Shaw also did some Reiki and laser treatments. I highly recommend her for your pets’ chiropractic care.

We brought our 15-year-old mix-breed dog to Dr. Shaw to help her with rear-end weakness and mobility. Within minutes of her first adjustment, we could see an improvement. She really understands the structure of dogs and is open and honest about what she can do. She referred us to a Veterinarian physical therapist to continue her treatment in addition to her monthly adjustments. Dr. Shaw is a very caring and compassionate person and we are lucky to have her helping our dog feel good in her old age.

Dr. Shaw is an excellent Dr. who helped my 11-year-old Yorkie. He was limping and struggling to walk. I saw improvements after just 1 visit! He is running and jumping again like a puppy. I definitely made the right choice. Thanks, Dr. Shaw!

The Boyles
Jack The Ripper is our 10-year-old English Bulldog. He has been slowing down and struggling with weakness in his hind legs over the past year. 
His vet has been prescribing many different pain medications which make him groggy so we stopped those but he is on a new oral anti-inflammatory medication which is helping his arthritis but we knew that he needed further help. We know he is getting older but we wanted to give him a chance to feel better so we called Dr. Melissa Shaw.
Upon her first visit to our home, she could clearly see that he was struggling to get up and walk. She took the time to get to know him and was so gentle with him. She was able to adjust him and do cold laser therapy. A few days later, we could see positive results. We finally saw our little boy being able to walk down the hallway without having to stop and rest every few feet. 
Dr. Shaw now sees Jack once a month. We totally believe in maintaining great health through chiropractic care! Every chance I get, I tell fellow animal lovers Jack’s story so they will consider animal chiropractic with Dr. Shaw if their pet has symptoms.

Dr. Shaw has helped my senior dog tremendously. Before treatment, she was having serious difficulty getting up and down and was struggling with mobility. With routine adjustments, her ability to move has increased and she’s experiencing less of the aches and pains of aging. After each treatment, she rolls around like a happy puppy!

We can’t thank Melissa enough for treating our dog, Iona.  She is 13 years old and it was discovered that she had developed some herniated discs in her back which resulted in her lameness and other additional problems as a result of her condition. Our veterinarian recommended chiropractic sessions instead of surgery or medication.  Since Iona’s treatment, she has shown remarkable improvement!  She even looks forward to her treatment.  She is most certainly a happier dog.  Thanks again, Melissa!
duffy
Christina F. and Duffy
Duffy is my 13 1/2-year-old Golden, he has arthritis for a few years now. After falling one night he was stunned and unable to move with any ease.
Our vet sent him home with pains meds and best wishes 🙁   I worked for Doctor Shaw and knew how great she was with two-legged patients and decided to have Dr. Shaw evaluate and treat Duffy. After only 30 minutes Duffy was walking better and seemed to have less pain. I know this treatment is not a cure but if it can lessen the pain of an already existing condition, I am all in. Thank you, Dr. Shaw, for making an old pup comfortable!
