What Kind of Dogs are Prone to Water on the Brain?
Most times the cause of “water on the brain” is genetics. A puppy is not born with water on the brain but anatomical problems lead to this. Certain breeds with a natural tendency toward a domed head are more susceptible as well as the Chihuahua, Pomeranian, Yorkshire terrier, English Bulldog, Lhasa Apso, Pug, Pekingese, Boston Terrier, Maltese, toy Poodle, and Cairn Terrier.

What are the Physical Benefits of Canine~Touch for the Cerebral Spinal Fluid?
Canine~Touch LLC can assist all body systems to perform optimally by increasing or balancing circulation of blood, lymph, cerebral spinal fluid and oxygenation of the cells. By enhancing the CSF flow, we increase the balance and sensitivity of the somatic and autonomic nervous system.
How are Cardiovascular and Respiratory Waves Affected by Canine~Touch LLC?
Cardiovascular waves from the heart and arteries cause rhythmical rises and falls in blood volume and pressure in the arteries of the brain. The changes in arterial pressure affect the surrounding CSF. As pressure goes up, CSF is driven out of the skull and into the spine. As arterial pressure drops, CSF is pulled from the spinal cord into the brain.
Similarly, respiratory waves are affected by Canine~Touch LLC. It changes the pressure acting on the heart and blood vessels inside the rib cage. As pressure inside the rib cage goes up during exhalation, it increases pressure in the arteries of the brain. As pressure goes down during inhalation, pressure in the arteries of the brain goes down as well.
