Cross column: St. Peter chiropractor goes to the dogs

(Continued)

ST PETER —

“After the second visit, she was running around, sometimes playing like a puppy would, but she still wasn’t 100 percent.”

“After the last visit, we went out to the truck she jumped right onto the tailgate,” he said.

Ostoff, who admitted he was a little skeptical of canine chiropractic treatment, now says he is sold on it. “It was a last resort and really, not a lot of money,” he said.

An initial visit to Rising Sun Chiropractic, including the physical assessment and treatment costs $75. Subsequent visits are $45.

Now well into the fall hunting seasons and having logged numerous days afield with his four-legged hunting partner who is back to hunting with gusto, Ostoff believes it was money well-spent

“She’s back to her old self,” he said. “We’ve been out hunting pretty much all day sometimes,” he said.

  • Cross: Once upon a time, when fishing was simple... Once upon a time, fishing was a pretty simple affair. A rod-and-reel, some bait and tackle, perhaps a rowboat if you were lucky, and you were in business. While the basic premise of angling -- to catch fish -- remains, it sure seems to have grown mor
