Dooking Over the Rainbow Bridge

Veterinary Visits and Goodbyes

Hey lovelies

Today has been a very hard day for myself indeed.   I noticed my older ferret  of 4 years, was not any better, so I decided to take him to the vet.  It took a little bit because most vets did not see ferrets so I really had to look and finally I found one.

We noticed a week ago that he was skinny, and it was weird he was fine a week or so before we thought maybe it was the new cage and he just was adjusting to it.  Sadly it just got worse so it was time to bring him in.

I had high hopes it was something small like an infected tooth, or something minimal.

Unfortunately it was ferret insulinoma, it is highly deadly and fatal to ferrets I will be writing up another blog post about this at a later date.  The vet had said that it was so aggressive already there really wasn’t much that could done.  I didn’t want him to suffer so I had decided to do the best thing for him which was to humanely euthanize him.

The staff was amazing and so very supportive, and it helped provide some comfort as I sat in a room with him for awhile and just held him, telling him what a good boy he was, how much I love him, that I am still with him, I held him and cried, the vet and technician came into the room and were so kind very caring about the whole ordeal.

I will miss you bandit, thank you for giving me four years of pads stacked like building blocks, laughter, and most importantly ferret love.  You truly were the best ferret anyone could ever wish for and I am so glad you walked with me physically, through part of my journey.

Your wings were ready but my heart was not.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is where a practitioner( aka me who is certified), will channel universal life force energy through their hands and then it is sent to the animal or person, in which then they choose where they need the healing to go.  Reiki also helps to remove blocks or clear our chakras or energy wheels these wheels are vitally important to our overall well being and they are just as essential to our pets.

“We Got Our Pet From Craigslist”

How to Avoid Scams When Adopting Craigslist Pets

It’s not doubt that affording a pet can be extremely expensive.  You need to buy them food for their belly, water to cleanse their body, and a home to provide them a warm,safe place to stay.

Let’s not forget you have the annual exams, depending on the pet you may need vaccinations, or spay and neuter.

Uh oh!  You find your pet dog, Fluffy, has gotten into your children’s toys!  Little Tommy is missing his favorite action figure, only to discovered after an emergency visit, and X-Ray, that it is residing in your dog’s tummy!

Or maybe you’ve decided you want to adopt a puppy or kitten so you go only to discover the adoption fee is a staggering 600 dollars!

You decide you want to adopt from craigslist, here are some tips to help avoid scams.

  • DO NOT give any payment to anyone before you meet the animal.  One of the biggest mistakes people make is depositing money to someone BEFORE meeting your new furry friend.
  • DO have cash in hand when you meet up.  IF you decide to go forward and adopt the animal it is wise to have the cash amount with you.
  • DO NOT meet in a private place.  For obvious reasons
  • DO meet in a park, city event, or parking lot of a busy store, again it is more safe than entering someone’s home you do not know.

While no advice can make adopting craigslist pet’s 100 percent safe these tips will help you avoid potentially dangerous situations..

The reason your pet is groggy may surprise you!  Don’t panic yet!  If you have been to the vets and they have found nothing wrong through an exam then the reason can be on an energetic level and this is not something the vet office will detect.

Your Pet’s Chakra and Energy May Need a Reiki Healing!

If you’ve ever woken up after a good nights rest and still felt groggy, and then did a meditation or took a salt bath, you know that the groggy feeling most likely has went away.

Ever wake up and feel like your hung over just on your face?  You detoxed negative energy such as stress and in a physical manifestation it has form to feeling like there is a veil or a mask of exhaustion over your face.  Now notice if you wash your face when you first wake up that feeling goes away?  It’s because you cleansed the toxins.

It is similar with your pet.

Pets can be quite sensitive to energy including yours, if you are stressed out, your pet is most likely just as stressed out.  If you have changed ANYTHING even so much as washing a blanket, or a toy your pet loves this could also stress them out.  Any sudden change even the smallest change, can create stress in your pet.

How do we fix this?  Simple!  Animal Reiki!

How Animal Reiki Works

Animal reiki works similarly to how human reiki works.  The life force energy is channeled into my hands and then gently channeled to the animal where the animal then decides where the healing is needed most.  So while the animal is healing I also perform a chakra clearing.  Chakras are energy wheels that are vital to our wellness and health, as they are with our pets.  When these chakras are blocked they can cause an array of both energetic and physical issues.

This energy healing does not hurt your pet it is gentle cleansing that helps them to detox blocked up chakras and release negative energy that they may have gained from a past life, or this one.  Animal reiki can also help to increase the bond between you and your pet.

Are you ready to align your pet?
