Just a question for everyone.

My mare is 6 months pregnant and I was thinking of having the chiropractor out to check her out and see how things are structurally and to check out a leg/shoulder issue she is having (for some reason she just loves to have her left front leg stretched out, she won't let me pick her hoof until I have stretched out her leg, she practically shoves it forward and up as soon as I touch it to pick it up). She has been worked on by a chiropractor in the past, but never when she was pregnant. Does anyone know if there is any concern about having adjustments done while she is pregnant. I don't want to mess up her structure while she is pregnant, but then I don't want to leave her if she is out in her shoulder somewhere and have her bearing extra weight on an already "off" shoulder (she doesn't appear lame, just likes it stretched).

So any thoughts on chiropractors working on pregnant mares??

Thanks!!

Is your chiropractor a DVM, or just a Chiropractor? I know that the rules on that vary a lot by state. If the Chiropractor is also a vet, they would probably be the best one to ask.

no the chiropractor is not a DVM. He was originally a human chiropractor and then went and took some courses, etc and became an equine chiropractor. I haven't used him myself, but some friends of mine have and were really impressed with him and his ability to fix up a couple of horses that had been worked on before by someone else but were still lame. The vets in my area don't do chiro work, there is one that is an hour away but I don't want to haul my preggo mare to her because I don't want to put any un-necessary stress on her.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Check out Linda Tellington and her T Touch program. I see no problems with stretching and massaging her. I wouldnt go popping or cracking anthing till after baby. The more limber a horse is the easier they get around and their balance is better to.

OHHHHH, I bought THE ULTIMATE HORSE BEHAVIOR and TRAINING BOOK by LINDA TELLINGTON-JONES with Bobbie Liebermann, with a foreward by John Lyons. A lot of very good information in it, and am looking forward to reading it and absorbing as much as I can. Different TTouches throughout the book. Everyone needs this one! Just got it on Thursday evening, and have had approx. 30 minutes opportunity to skim. Oh, where can a person find more time in a day?

I took my mare to a chiropractor while in foal...just make sure the chiropractor knows she is in foal. I live in Michigan.
My mare felt so much better afterward

Most times human chiropractors won't treat humans until the 2nd trimester and then it can be of huge benefit through pregnancy and beyond. I can't see why that would be different in horses and plan on getting my equine chiropractor to keep up the regular wellness checks on my mare throughout and beyond pregnancy (assuming she catches - being covered tomorrow - fingers crossed!!)
