One dog is in pain and possibly has neurologic deficits; the other is a chiropractic issue and allopathic veterinarians call it an incidental finding. Can you tell which is which? After watching the video you will be able to know the difference and how to treat.

An excellent group of knowledgable veterinarians, if you are a veterinarian and not a member of this group you should be. The descriptions of these diseases were paraphrased from Dr. Bill Thomas
