Teeth Cleaning for our Animals

Periodically I am asked during animal communication sessions about dental care for pets. Sometimes the animal with which I’m working has discomfort or sensitivity in their mouth. We can get the specific symptoms from the animal during the consultation, but I always recommend that the animal be scheduled for a dental checkup in these cases, which usually can be done with the animal’s regular veterinarian. Sometimes, however, I am simply asked about the “rule of thumb” for dental cleanings and checkups. My rule of […]

Flower Essences for Emotional Healing – Part Two

Part One of “Flower Essences for Emotional Healing” discussed the properties and benefits of flower essence remedies, which can offer valuable support for our beloved animals in times of emotional stress. Whether one chooses individual essences, pre-mixed or a custom-blend, the results are often obvious and quick. This post will discuss common indicators for the consideration of a flower essence, as well as a few essences which I recommend for animals in need. Flower essences don’t appeal to all animals, but those who are […]

Flower Essences for Emotional Healing – Part One

As an animal communicator I work with animals for a broad variety of reasons. Some are straight-forward, others are quite complex. Some animals with which I work exhibit obvious emotional distress; others express some subtle, underlying emotional sensitivities. It is not uncommon for emotional sensitivities or distress to have a direct correlation to behavioral issues, and if left unchecked, could develop into certain types of physical issues. Occasionally I work with an animal with low-grade anxiety which disappears once the animal feels heard and understood, or has the […]

Homeopathic Remedies for Animals

I have been a proponent and beneficiary of Homeopathic Remedies for many years now. While the healing derived from homeopathics can be subtle and is generally noticed over a period of  time, I have personally experienced positive outcomes for both physical and emotional maladies. Can homeopathic remedies be used safely and effectively with animals? Absolutely! My homeopathic practitioner has identified appropriate remedies for my own animals with success, and several of my clients have mentioned their veterinarians who work with […]

Resources to Assist when our Pet Passes On

This is a difficult and emotional topic, but one that I work with regularly in my animal communication practice. At some point our beloved pet will age, and eventually will pass away. I appreciate when animal guardians seek out communication or counseling services when the time draws near. It can be extremely helpful for the animal and the guardian to have final words and an opportunity for closure. Often the client utilizes animal communication to understand the animals preference – will they be able to pass on […]

Pug on Wheels

Those of us with elder animals or pets with special needs know how difficult it can be to watch our beloved companions slow down. Emotionally, we want to help however we can and often feel helpless. Our animals tend to “deal with” their physical limitations better than we do (see my “Comments from Kelly” in a past Articulate Animals Newsletter about my own little guy’s advice to me as his mobility declines) and they want nothing more than to minimize […]

While humans are away, cats can play!

Most of us are familiar with “kenneling” or “boarding” our dogs when we go on vacation. Having access to a safe environment for our pets when they can’t be with us for a few days is one less worry. I was excited to see recently that a similar opportunity now exists for cats in my hometown in Colorado. The Evergreen Cat Lodge recently opened for business, offering 32 – count ’em – rooms for rent. Felines only please! I’ve not […]
