Having an answer is such a relief! Beau's vet has started a rehabilitation program recently. One of the vets was sent off to get the specialty training she needs and they are now expanding their program to do much more for pets! (Rehabilitation is a comparatively new specialty for humans, too!) If you get a clean bill of health urinary tract-wise at the next appointment, you might ask the vet about some exercises you could do with Tillie that would help to strengthen her abdomen and back muscles. Maybe water therapy? Maybe some version of doggy stretching and bridges and sit-ups? Chiropracty can put things back in place, but she will need the right exercises to help her keep things aligned. If the vet can't help with that, maybe you and he can do some research on doggy physical therapy! This sounds all good for you and Tillie! Give her a hug and a kiss from all of us!
PS: I'm a spinal cord injury nurse specialist. If I can help you with understanding the connection between the spine and the urinary tract, please don't hesitate to ask. I don't want to tell you what you already know. Hang in there!!
