"But when I saw the dog at three years old move up and down the stairs... I would have never been able to tell that she had ever had a problem"

MAGGIE'S STORY

Meet Maggie, a yellow Labrador. When she was a puppy, she was diagnosed with such severe case of hip dysplasia (unusual in a young dog), its owners feared that they would have to put her down. Maggie was in a lot of pain and was having trouble going up and down the stairs in her home. But after three Rolfing sessions, Maggie appeared to be doing much better. “I looked at the x-rays of the dog and it did have very severe dysplasia for such an early age,” remembers Sheila Dodson, a veterinarian at the Big Sky Animal Medical Center in Great Falls, MT. “But when I saw the dog at three years old move up and down the stairs and walk around the house, I would have never been able to tell that she had ever had a problem. I would not have been able to tell that this dog had hip dysplasia. If I didn’t know better, I would have said that those x-rays did not belong to this dog.” Maggie did not need to be put down, and instead went on to live a very long, full, happy life.
