For the Love of Zeus

I am pleased to provide a guest article by Antonia Madunic, a client and holistic resource for me. I have been honored to work with Antonia and her Boxer, Zeus, for several years. I am in awe and appreciation of their partnership, especially through Zeus’s several health projects. He was always very clear with her – directly as well in our communication consultations – when the combination of supplements and nutrients were hitting the mark for him, or when there […]

Emergency Preparedness with Microchips

Have you staged an emergency drill to test your pet’s microchip? We never hope to need to rely on the microchip to be reunited with our beloved pet, but in the unfortunate event that you would need to rely on the chip, it will be well worth the time it takes to practice walking through the steps. Microchips can be a lifesaver for our pet, but if the information that was recorded by the chip company is not accurate, or your […]

Time with Special Colorado Wildlife

Living in the mountains of Colorado, I see a variety of wildlife regularly. I am always grateful for these sightings which are generally a bit of distance away, or at the least, on the other side of my living room windows. This past weekend I was blessed to spend quality time with wildlife “up close and personal” at the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide. It’s my second visit in five years, but no less thrilling the second time around. The […]

Assisting our Pets with Disabilities

When our beloved pets are still full of life even in the midst of a diagnosis or physical disablity, there are many resources and alternatives to keep them healthy and active for a while longer. It is amazing to me the resources available for our pets. Diabetes, degenerative myelopathy or similar, and cancer are all scary words to hear and difficult diagnoses to wrap our heads around. These diagnoses don’t necessarily mean the end is near. Certainly, we don’t want our beloved pets […]

Bringing A Missing Pet Home: Rufus’s Story

A client contacted me a few weeks ago with the news that her parents’ pet parakeet, Rufus, had gone missing. While he spends a good amount of time out of his cage with his people during the day, he is not an outside bird. On this day, however, Rufus was outside by accident and, as all of us with pets know, sometimes accidents happen. Rufus was startled and flew out of grasp. A missing pet of any species is heartbreaking. We […]

Dental Care for Animals

I’ve just become an expert in animal dental care. Well, not an official expert. I’m not a veterinarian or vet tech but I have just been through extensive dental work with my girl dog and now I know a lot more about responsible guardian dental care than before. It’s not that I didn’t know it before – I just let it slide. None of my pugs had beautiful teeth even when young. They all had dental cleanings occasionally, but not as often as most […]

Toys to Keep Pets Challenged

When I work with animal communication clients regarding certain behavioral issues with their dog or cat, it is not uncommon for a part of the cause to be related to anxiety or boredom, prey drive/hunting instinct, or territorialism. Of course, every animal’s rationale for their behavior is different and it is important to understand what is driving them to react as they do. But quite often the solution involves redirecting the pet to a less destructive, more productive activity. Toys to keep your […]

FAQ: Helping Pets Deal with Summer Heat

An animal communication client asked:  Any tips on how to help extra furry dogs stay cool in this heat?? That’s a great question! Having lived with pugs, I do have some tricks up my sleeve. While a pug is not “extra furry” like a Husky or Australian Shepard, they do have delicate respiratory systems which can become very quickly compromised in heat and humidity. Here are some tips: Of course, first and foremost, limit your dog’s intense activity during the hottest part of the day. […]

A Dog’s Perspective on Stem-Cell Therapy

I enjoy the wide variety of topics that come my way as an animal communicator. Last month I had my first experience with a dog who’s humans were considering a stem-cell treatment to strengthen his joints. I appreciate their strategy in digging for all relevant information about the procedure, benefits, risks, and possible outcomes. Along with this, they wanted to know how the dog felt about more work on his joints (he’s had three previous surgeries). There are three sides to […]

Interview with Kelly about Animal Communication

I was honored to be asked for an interview recently to answer some questions about animal communication. As an animal communicator, I appreciate opportunities to offer information and examples of how animal communication can benefit our pets and strengthen our relationship with our beloved companions. That was my primary motivator for participating in the interview, however a secondary benefit is now knowing of this great blog for cat lovers. While specific to the Ragdoll breed of cat, I believe there are […]
