Patient Testimonials

BuddyWe Look Forward to Regular Visits

Buddy is an 8-year-old Shar-Pei/Pug mix who loves to play fetch and take naps in the sun. As he has aged, he experienced trouble walking and comfortably laying down due to a back issue. After two visits with Dr. Paige, we instantly saw a change in him. He enjoyed stretching more, he started rolling over for belly rubs, and he was more playful and relaxed than ever.

Dr. Paige was also an instant friend to Buddy. He tends to be a reserved dog who takes a while to warm up to people. However, she quickly won his trust (plus, we found a new brand of treats for our picky eater!). We look forward to regular visits and hope Buddy will continue on a good path toward recovery!

Caring, Friendly, and Extremely Knowledgeable

DaisyDaisyLast month our dog Daisy was acting off. She was in pain, crying, and had difficulty moving. We tried to get into our regular vet but they did not have any appointments available and would not accommodate us even though she was in pain. I had seen Paws of Pleasanton on Facebook for a few months and decided to check out their website and read the bios of all of the doctors and staff. I then immediately called their office to see if they could get Daisy in. They were able to fit us in that day.

When Dr. Melissa Hardy said it could be IVDD we were very worried. Dr. Hardy immediately put our minds at ease saying there were many different options for treatment to talk about before surgery would be considered.

DaisyDaisyAfter a thorough exam, she recommended a course of medications, crate rest, and Chiropractic treatments. We were then introduced to Dr. Jessica Paige. Dr. Paige is a human and animal Chiropractor. Dr. Paige recommended spinal adjustments and Cold Laser Therapy treatments over the course of several weeks. Once Daisy was off her pain medications, Dr. Paige introduced a series of physical therapy exercises to strengthen her core and back areas. We had no idea these types of treatments were available for dogs. After a few weeks of adjustments, Cold Laser Therapy treatments and exercises our girl is back to her old self, happily playing, doing zoomies, and enjoying life again.

Drs. Hardy and Paige are fantastic. They are caring, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable and professional. Daisy loved visiting the office and had no anxiety about her visits or treatments. The front office and technician staff is top-notch and everyone has a genuine “we really care” attitude. We are now in the process of moving all of our dogs to Paws of Pleasanton Animal Hospital and I can only ask myself why we didn’t do this sooner.

Intuitive, Gentle, and Committed to Helping our Animals

OscarOscarMy older dog Oscar is almost 10 years old and recently injured himself when he crashed into some wooden steps. His limping was bad enough that I made an appointment with Dr. Paige, who was highly recommended to me. She knew exactly where his discomfort was, made the necessary adjustments and since then, he has not limped at all. Although our visit was primarily for Oscar, I wanted my younger dog Seymour to get checked out too, and it turns out his spine was more out of whack then his older brother’s. He suffers from chronic ear and anal skin issues, and Dr. Paige immediately noticed the intense heat emanating from his lower back.

After adjusting him, I’ve noticed that his skin is so much cooler to the touch, and there has been less inflammation overall. Skin problems are so difficult to fix in dogs, but I’m hoping that chiropractic will help keep the blood and energy flowing through his body. The week before our last visit, we were out walking when Seymour started lunging at two, large aggressive dogs. I yanked his harness hard in order to avoid a disaster, and consequently, he began having problems walking up stairs. Dr. Paige adjusted him, and when we got home, he raced up the stairs as if nothing had happened!

I think as humans, we often don’t realize that our pets have the same aches and pains as we do, especially because they can’t express their discomfort until it physically manifests. Dr. Paige is incredibly intuitive, gentle, and committed to helping our animals.

Thanks again!!

Finally Getting Relief

Lou DogLou Dog is a 14-year-old shepherd mix with a litany of health issues including a heart murmur and kidney disease. Fortunately, these ailments have been well controlled with medication and lifestyle adjustments. However, I recently noticed some neurological symptoms that seemed to be affecting his mobility. He was having difficulty jumping on the bed (after all he is 14!), was generally less mobile, and occasionally tripping on his back feet. Lou Dog’s vet said that he was an excellent candidate for chiropractic care, so we set up an appointment with Dr. Paige.

Lou Dog is naturally a nervous Nelly, and his first visit was stressful for him. Dr. Paige was so kind and caring, moving slowly to allow him to adjust to this new hands-on treatment. She examined him, gave him some pinpointed massage, and applied laser treatment as well. Lou Dog left this visit tired and a bit sore, but within a day, he seemed slightly more mobile.

Lou Dog was less stressed and more tolerant for his second visit, and without a doubt, he was moving better afterward. This gave us such hope that he was finally getting relief from some of his chronic pain that he had just shouldered quietly for so long.

This last week was his 3rd visit, and he was very tolerant of the treatment. It took less than half the time of the first visit as he had an understanding of the routine. Whereas normally he would be worn out and resting the remainder of the day after the appointment, on this day he was energized! He was zooming around the house (a behavior we haven’t seen much of in the last 6 months) and flinging his toys around. He was smiling and clearly felt really good. Each day since then has shown us that he is truly feeling relief.

It’s been so joyful to watch Lou begin to feel better and to recognize that the treatment is helpful to him. Dr. Paige has such a great touch with dogs. Her patience and calm demeanor are so important to the experience as well. With a 14-year-old pup, every day is a blessing, and I am so thrilled to help provide him with as many pain-free days as possible. Thank you, Dr. Paige!

Dr. Paige is a godsend!

This is my 11 yr old Audrey Rose, you can’t tell from her before video, but she has always been energetic, strong and agile. It was very heartbreaking to see her suddenly and quickly lose her mobility. It started with a small limp so we took her to the vet who prescribed pain and anti inflammatory drugs for a sprain, but there was no improvement.

Soon she was struggling to walk so we sought out a second opinion and received the same diagnosis and similar but stronger prescriptions. By now Audrey’s paws were dragging and getting scraped up, she could not walk very long without giving in to a slow collapse. It got to the point where we had to use a lift harness to help her get out and relieve herself. Audrey was continuing to decline, she could no longer go on walks and was not wanting to interact much. She was moping and looked depressed. We saw one more vet who suggested a very expensive but quick answer MRI and surgery. My husband and I felt it was too invasive and expensive at $10k and decided to treat Audrey with chiropractic. And we are so happy we did! With each visit to Dr. Paige we could see measurable improvement. After just a few visits Audrey is walking, able to relieve herself without assistance, go up and down stairs and even running again!

We are so grateful to you Dr Paige! You helped bring the quality of life back to our Audrey Rose and bring the twinkle back in her eyes. We will continue treatments for maintenance and will recommend Dr. Paige for all our fur friends and family.



Hi, my name is Desi. My mate Lucy and I adopted my mama Cathy eight years ago. I am a three-year cancer survivor and have a heart murmur too. Boys do tell their ages and the vet said I am anywhere from age 11 to 13 years young. My mate Lucy passed away but mama adopted a frisky Chihuahua name Cher for me to perk up.

Well, I was pretty perky until in November 2019 I hurt my back. I could not walk.

My mama looked on doctor Jessica Paige’s website and was impressed with her skills. Dr. Paige adjusted my spine and I just loved her working with me. I would back right into her hands for that adjustment.

I am walking again and go for short walks about 10 houses total two times a day.

I sun myself and play with Cher again.

Thank you, Dr. Paige, for fixing me

Holly testimonial imageSo thankful to have met Dr. Paige. My dog (dachshund) was dragging her back legs all of a sudden and could not control her bladder or bowels. After seeing the vet that Dr. Paige works with for clearance of treatment, we had our first adjustment in conjunction with treatment for her sudden spinal infection and UTI. Within two chiropractic adjustments the first week, my dog was using her feet to get in and out of her kennel. Within 2 weeks she was starting to use her feet more and walking a little. As her infection healed and with chiropractic treatments spaced out, we saw great improvement. Without the chiropractic treatments I do not think she would have gained mobility nor would her medication have been as quick to work on her spine. Today my dog runs, jumps, and goes on walks. You would have never known we were in a place of euthanasia or treatment for a spinal problem which we could not afford to operate on. I am thankful to Dr. Paige and the clinic she works with. It has been almost a year since the incident occurred and we see Dr. Paige every 2 months for a tune-up. Afterward, my dog is relaxed and truly does feel better. I see it in her walk and disposition. I cannot recommend Dr. Paige enough for the treatment of your animals. She is a wonderful human being born to do this type of work. Give it a chance, your pets will thank you

Dr. Paige is amazing! Our 10 year old girl had been suffering for three weeks with a pinched nerve in her neck and mid-back. Two Vets prescribed heavy pain medication that kept her drugged with minimal pain relief and with no quality of life. We had the conversation that if Dr. Paige could not help her, we would let her go. We saw significant results after the first adjustment and it keeps getting better. Now after four adjustments, she is her usual happy self, walking, rolling on the grass and enjoying life once again and NO medications! Follow up visits will keep her healthy. Thank you Dr. Paige, you saved our girl! We can never repay you for the good work you did for our Penny.



Juniper is a one-year old American Cocker Spaniel. She’s a show dog who trains in obedience and agility for competition. Juniper is a “Go for it” girl and when she was young her owner noticed a tightness in the center of her back. This may have been an injury from one of Juniper’s acrobat jumps or playing with the big dogs. Despite giving simple massage, the tightness would not go away. One could visibly see a bump in her back causing her top line to appear roach. Additionally, Juniper’s owner noticed that Juniper could not sit straight which is important in obedience. As a one-year old, Juniper still sat in a slouch, puppy sit and almost always with her hips to one side. Since starting treatment just a couple of months ago, the tightness in Juniper’s back is gone. The area is no longer warm with inflammation. Juniper can now sit straight! Juniper had tightness in opposite shoulder and hip creating her crooked sit. The adjustments from Dr. Paige have allowed for more equal movement on both sides. In addition to “fixing” these initial issues, Juniper now has more flow to her movement and better reach with her strides in the show ring. Juniper has had two big wins in the show ring because when “you feel good, you show that in your confidence” even if you’re a dog.

Best of Winners and Best of Variety

My cat Nube-La was diagnosed with an inner ear disease that almost took her life earlier this year. She could hardly walk, she stumbled and fell constantly. She couldn’t control her head and finally she had a seizure in my garden. The doctors wanted her to have an MRI to look for a possible brain damage. Their hopes were not high for her survival. I tried the holistic route which is always my first choice. After a series of treatments with Dr. Jessica Paige, all these symptoms changed for the better. Nube-La slowly turned around…she eats, walks and behaves normally. When she shows me she needs help I take her to Dr Paige for her quarterly adjustment. Even though, at age 11 she was left with a hearing impairment, I can say she has a normal life, in good health and enjoying the garden…only when she reluctantly leaves her heating mat behind. I’d recommend Dr Paige to anyone whose animal friend needs support to heal. Her skills, her intuition and her compassionate heart make healing miracles possible. Nube-La and I are deeply grateful to Dr. Paige.

I have an Arabian mare. She has been with me for 9 years, and if there is a smarter, cooperative, and spirited horse, I haven’t met her. Unfortunately, she injured herself last March. About 6 weeks ago, I started working with Dr. Jessica Paige, who is an experienced Chiropractor with animals and humans. To say it is a remarkable delight to be my sweet mare running around with other horses, trotting, cantering and galloping for the first time in 7 months is an understatement. It was a dream come true.

Rocky Horror – Chiropractic Helping Surgical Recovery

I worked at a veterinary hospital in San Jose that would take surrendered animals if we felt we could find a new home for them. One day, a young woman brought in a 10 week old kitten. This kitten was so frightened it would barely move and had fear ridden eyes everyone could notice. The young women stated she found her dog in the yard chewing on what she thought was a toy, only to realize it was this kitten. During examination, it was obvious the kitten did not move because her right rear leg was completely broken at the femur with punctures in her thigh. Read more

Our hospital recognized the young women as a good samaritan and allowed her to surrender the kitten to our care. That day, we offered the kitten food, water, and a warm kennel in our treatment area. The broken leg was confirmed with x-rays and we were happy to know nothing else was broken. We immediately managed her pain and then scheduled her for a voluntary surgery by two of our veterinarians the following day. After her amputation, I monitored the kitten closely for a week hoping she would walk on her own. She continued to show so much fear in her eyes, even when I would check on her, her incisions and wounds, or change her bedding and offer food. She never moved more than walking with her front legs and barely used her rear foot to push her rear end. We worried she had nerve damage to her left rear leg, especially with punctured wounds also found in her left thigh. Because she spent so much time in hiding, I offered to take her home to give her a warm, quiet place to heal and help rehabilitate her if she allowed. Our hospital was happy to have the kitten stay with me for a bit. The day I took her home became one of the most important days of my life. The ballots of the presidential election of 2016 were being counted while I had the kitten by my right hiding in a blanket with only her face exposed. She looked scared but, for the first time, safe. As my own cat, Rasa Libre, and I kept an eye on her, I could not help but hear the announcement of the presidential election. The moment the president was announced, I was about to evaluate how I felt until I looked over to the kitten and noticed her giving a comfortable squint and sigh after Rasa Libre gave her a sniff and quick face groom. At that moment, I promised to the kitten out loud that I would give her a world of love and compassion. My fiancè, Albert, was also in support of the care for our new kitten, whom we named Rocky Horror to celebrate her unique appearance (grey and white pattern, additional toe to each foot to resemble a human-like paws, and now three legs) and beautiful personality (tramatizeed yet brave, scared yet loving and gentle, physically painful yet always seeked emotional comfort). For the last year and a half, Albert, Rasa Libre, and I have helped Rocky Horror experience love, trust, and healing. She compensated with her back, shoulders, and left hock to walk and run. It was known that Rasa Libre was her emotional support as Rocky Horror ran to her and followed her everywhere. I spent many late nights, even until this day, hanging out with Rocky Horror as it is her favorite time to open up and be silly and play. She was very fearful of everyone and everything else. Albert spent many days learning to adjust in ways that were sensitive towards Rocky Horror. Friends of ours would visit socialize with Rocky Horror using Rasa Libre as an example. On March 2017, I came home from work to find Rocky Horror hiding. She has never hid from me but I found her hiding under the bed. She was initially reluctant to come out but eventually did when realizing it was me calling her. She slowly, and painfully, pulled herself toward me while dragging her remaining rear leg and gave a low cry. It was so painful for me to see and I was confused to what may have happened. I woke Albert who said she seemed to walk normal just before he went to bed. A trip right back to work with Rocky Horror showed a left hip with a slipped capital femoral epiphysis and a pair of fused vertebrates. She was scheduled for a femoral head ostectomy soon after. It was traumatizing for Rocky Horror on what seemed to be another scary experience of pain leading to surgical pain, and a week stay in a different hospital. Rocky Horror received treatments from her doctor at the hospital and home rehabilitative care with passive range of motion and teaching her how to walk again. Due to her fused spine and anticipated healing, I elected her be seen by a chiropractor. Dr. Paige just happened to start receiving appointments at the hospital and I had no hesitation for her to meet Rocky Horror. Since the surgery, hospital laser therapy, home rehabilitation and chiropractic appointments with Dr. Paige, Rocky Horror has gained so much strength and confidence that I do not recognize her at times. She contently receives her spinal adjustments. She loves to look out the window, whether going to appointments or hanging out at home. She went from fearfully running away from Albert to presenting a confident and shake for him before meals. The four of us is now are able to hangout all at once due to how comfortable and confident Rocky Horror has been. Rocky Horror still remains a loving and endearing personality. -Lucille Tse, Registered Veterinary Technician
