Dog Symptoms and Kinesiology

Symptoms in Dogs

Kinesiology is Incredibly Useful for Feedback on Dogs

The following is an excerpt from Chapter Two in my e-book, “The Ultimate Rehabilitation & Physiotherapy Guide for Dogs

“This is a form of muscle testing which is very useful in checking various muscle groups for strengths and weaknesses, to help determine what the proper therapy is for a dog. Essentially, this is a muscle to organ to gland connection, to determine what the cause of illness is. By checking the resistance of the muscle when tested against various substances, we can see if this is empowering to the body or disempowering.

To test an animal, a surrogate holds the substance in his/her hand and places this hand on top of the dog’s body while being tested. With the surrogate’s other arm extended parallel to the ground, the therapist presses down on the arm to determine the strength of the muscle. The surrogate’s ability to hold that arm upward against the pressure determines the energy field. The energy flows from the dog through the surrogate and the weakness or strength will be visible in the surrogate’s body. There will be either a strong, normal or weak response and the therapist can then determine structural, chemical, emotional or energetic imbalances. Applied kinesiology can help the following dog symptoms:

• Ongoing back pain
• Confused animals
• Depressed animals
• Dogs with digestive problems
• Allergies in dogs
• Dog symptoms with chronic and acute fatigue
• Neck pain symptoms in dogs
• Nervous system disorders in dogs
• Nutritional imbalances
• Trauma from injuries
• Pain relief in dogs
• Mental, physical and emotional stress
• Incontinence
• Anxiety in dogs
• Phobia symptoms in dogs

Muscle testing is a system of obtaining feedback to determine…”

Close to a Miracle – Stop Allergies in Dogs

Dog Allergies can be Frustrating

This natural treatment for a dog with allergies truly works!

There are so many ways that a dog allergy can manifest into something ugly and annoying. They can create terrible itchy skin irritations, bouts of chronic dog diarrhea, asthma and wheezing, stinky ear infections, stomach upset and vomiting, fussy appetites, weepy and goopy eyes, runny noses, enough gas that could light up a house and so many more.

So many of these dogs with allergies are led into a lifetime of drugs and medications, that only mask the dog symptoms and create even more of a nightmare for them. Countless other symptoms in dogs appear from the side effects of these prescribed drugs. That is not my idea of a program for health and longevity for our loving companions who depend on us.

So most of us would be reading label after label to ensure that none of the offending agents could possibly be hiding in their somewhere, but now a days they are making the print so small anything could be missed! Following this elimination diet is very useful but can also be time consuming to narrow it down to what is causing these dog allergies. Later if we re-introduce the food, the inflammatory response could flare up immediately.

There is a way to permanently rid the allergic response in your dog’s body.

Stress and Behavioural Problems

I think stress in our dogs is very much an overlooked symptom. There are many factors pointing to a stressed out pet and we as humans need to know what those signs are. We surely can recognize them in ourselves, how is it that we don’t see it in our dogs?

Our beloved dog can be stressed from interpersonal relationships within the household. They can be stressed from something as simple as boredom. Not adequate stimulation throughout their days can lead to that. As intelligent dogs they need to be stimulated mentally and physically each day. If there is not enough attention given to them or enough exercise given to them each day, they will suffer from stress.

  • Stress symptoms in dogs can appear as immune system dysfunctions
  • Yeast problems
  • This will impact the adrenal glands and other organs
  • Behavioral issues can arise
  • Weakened animals will have the reduced ability to deal with any further stressful situations very well

 It is important to look beneath the surface symptoms when dealing with stress in your dog. More than likely you will discover the reasons for their stress by observing their behavior. Continue reading
