I can see it now: "If the dog does not flinch when its neck is squeezed, then it's okay to breed."
And they charge $150 to squeeze a dog's neck?? WOW I'm definitely in the wrong profession.
We wouldn't want to forget the 'beezer squeezer'...
What's your profession? Bet we could come up with a similar 'you get paid that much just to do that!' too...And they charge $150 to squeeze a dog's neck?? WOW I'm definitely in the wrong profession.
Of course neurologists do a lot more in an exam than squeezing a dogs neck anyway -- having been to a couple with my SM dogs for clinical exams. And they know how to actually determine something from where and what they squeeze -- coupled with many other professional exam techniques and observations -- unlike pet owners or breeders. Or the majority of vets, who consistently miss neurological signs on clinical exams, going by the evidence of so many.
Cardios are a great example too of how someone with the proper professional training can provide a wealth of information through simple exams that the layperson or vets cannot.
