Product Description

Product Description

Chiropractors and their human patients already know the health benefits of relieving spinal nerve pressure. Dog owners and trainers who are fortunate enough to find a trained animal chiropractor also know of these benefits. But that’s the problem--finding a practitioner in your area. Very few veterinarians offer chiropractic services since they are too busy with medical emergencies. And most of the licensed human chiropractors, who became certified in animal chiropractic, are prohibited or severely limited by law to adjust animals in their state.
The Well Adjusted Dog: Canine Chiropractic Methods You Can Do will give dog owners insight on how a lot of the adjustments are performed and what to expect when they take their dog to an animal chiropractor--if they can find one.
For those who want to adjust their own dogs, the author provides step-by-step instructions with over 90 illustrations. However, Dr. Kamen strongly advises first consulting with a licensed veterinarian for a proper evaluation and to rule out any possible contraindications to adjusting.

About the Author:
Dr. Daniel Kamen was born in Chicago, Illinois and has been practicing chiropractic since 1981. His father is a highly respected anesthesiologist; his mother, a gifted artist. Dr. Kamen’s original animal chiropractic organization, “Animal Crackers,” produced animal chiropractic educational materials, which taught others how to adjust dogs and horses.
Dr. Kamen lives with his wife, Sharon, of thirty-four years. Together they have three sons, Jeffrey, Gary and Kevin. He makes his home in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. Dr. Kamen has been featured in many TV, radio, and newspaper stories concerning his work with animal chiropractic. He currently is on tour, teaching a professional as well as a lay lecture seminar on animal chiropractic (horse and dog adjusting). His hobbies include playing the piano and chess (master level). Books by Daniel Kamen include: The Well Adjusted Dog, The Well Adjusted Horse, The Well Adjusted Cat and a novel entitled Stagecoach Road: The Bullies Must Die.

5.0 out of 5 stars He'll keep you and your critters all cracked up 27 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Dr. Dan has written an easy to follow book for the lay person and he has noted which adjustments should be left to a chiropractor. His drawings really help you understand what he is doing. The next best thing to this book is having him actually do the adjusting. My dog is a patient, he helped her get up and he got my bunny to hop again.My bunny loved him (he prolonged his life). Not to mention he's pretty good at adjusting humans.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who has a dog suffering from bladder control problems and neck pain. The methods are easy to do and Dr. Kamen's explanations are as lucid as I've ever read. Fun to read. Gary Meirs, Chicago, IL.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the lay person but I wouldn't recommend all 9 Jan 2003
By Dr. Christine, chiropractor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Good, thorough explanation of chiropractic in relation to dogs. Good illustrations that help you understand the mechanism of the adjustment. As a chiropractor, I appreciate the detail Dr. Kamen goes into regarding adjustments; however, the typical dog owner may not be able to identify serious medical conditions that would be aggravated by performing a chiropractic adjustment versus a simple malalignment or "subluxation" that would respond very well. Good basic book to look at if you're thinking of taking your dog to an animal chiropractor. Great book to understand what it's all about and how your pet may benefit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goin' to the Dogs 5 Feb 2003
By maggie grant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book has saved my dog's dignity on more than one occasion. There truly is nothing more gratifying than finding the trouble spot, based solely on observing my dog's behavior, and then being able to refer to this wonderful book for stretching and therapeutic techniques that allow my dog to feel wonderful, almost instantly. I have bought this book for at least 3 of my dog owning friends who swear by it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who drew this thing???? 20 Nov 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I expected so much more based on previous reveiws (and price). This small book (yes, it has 163 pages, but it's only 5"x7") has line drawings that are so crude and childish they are useless. Utterly useless. Since this book is about canine chiropractic--knowing specifically where and how you touch the dog is vital to doing the adjustment correctly. You can't tell what the drawings are attempting to convey and have to go solely by the text which is more detailed than the pictures, but I feel the book really needed both to be of any use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmm 19 Mar 2006
By S. Voigt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed by this book, and I'm still not exactly sure why. It was definitely informative, and did show several good methods for adjusting my dogs. But it assumed a lot of technical and anatomical knowledge that I'm sure the majority of potential readers does not have, and in fact even with my own fairly in-depth canine knowledge I felt uncomfortable with many of the techniques, especially the one that starts with a disclaimer about how risky it is, says "do not attempt this at home" and then goes right on to detail how to do it.

I guess my impression was that the book was really written by a vet for other vets, under the guise of being aimed at the general public. There is a lot of soapboxing in it, too, about how vets aren't allowed to practice chiropractic and chiropractors aren't allowed to practice on animals... and while this, if still true, definitely sucks - I didn't buy the book to read about it!
