Animal Whisperer: To Crate or Not to Crate Your Ever-Loving Pets through Kim Malonie

Hi Kim,

The question we have is for Hercules. He was left to die tied to a tree in a field. The SPCA was notified and rescued him. Apparently he was a couple of days short of death.

We don’t really know how old he is. The vet says he is between five and eight years old. We take Hercules to the chiropractor, but he doesn’t like it, as he has issues with people touching him. However, he lets me hug him. The chiropractor gives the same age range.

We rescued him last May. He was at the shelter for one month before we got him. With his organs starting to shut down due to starvation, he has had a hard road to recovery.
