How do you find the perfect dog when your very special dog has passed on? You ask your Angel Dog for help! Here is Livie’s story of helping her people find the perfect dog.
I meet Livie, the flat coated retriever, after a very scary time in her life. In December 2014, Livie almost died from Congestive Heart Failure. The vet said she would live about 7 months.
Yes, words are important to pets and people! How often have you told your dog “stop barking” and she keeps barking? Or you told your cat “stop peeing outside the litter box” and he keeps doing it. Ugh, the mess!
Who do you call? Your dog just ate the chocolate bunny! Your cat got into household cleaner! Do you call your vet or a best friend? Read these Pet Poison Helpline experiences.
This spring within one week, two very good friends who are dog savvy had pet emergencies. Each friend’s dog had eaten something. Fast forward — everyone is fine! And we all learned very important lessons in these real life Pet Poison Helpline experiences.
Here are the stories.
What does a pet parent do when her 7-year old cat has major cat issues? A few years ago, Claudia Green of Mesa, AZ contacted Animal Bridges about Tommie because he wasn’t using the litter box, and the issue was resolved.
Now Tommie, a tabby, had symptoms of a urinary tract infection. Since there were no stones or crystals in his bladder the vet diagnosed it as feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC). The vet said the issue is caused by stress, anxiety, or fear. No one could figure out the cause. What was causing the cat issues for Tommie?
Claudia contacted Elaine of Animal Bridges for help. We decided an animal communication with Tommie to resolve his cat issues.
TTouch® is the language of trust and love for animals and people.
Some animals need to learn to trust first before they are comfortable giving love. Others just enjoy the undivided attention. An easy way to give undivided attention to your pet is doing Tellington TTouch®.
TTouch® can change animals’ lives for the better and definitely affect people too. My life was profoundly changed with TTouch® as I saw the affect on Boomer, our dog who was afraid of vets.

Elna van Coller of South Africa was very concerned about her excessive grooming cat. Elna contacted Animal Bridges and our conversation started.
Elna wrote about how Chatul, a Burmese cat, “started excessive grooming her tail” after the other family cat had surgery. Chatul licked until she had no hair on her tail.
The holiday season is on us, and this year it is suddenly shorter! Or at least it seems that way. Talk about adding stress! So how do you manage the holidays and quality time for your pet?
Of course, we all have the same amount of errands, mailings, and cooking in less time. Hobbes pulled out his warm coat early.
Now exhale! Yes, we are stressed and we are sharing it with our pets.
So let’s all stop for a minute or five minutes. Exhale. Clear your mind by listening to your breathing. Turn off the mind chatter of “I need to…”
Now for some quality time for your pet.
Go over to your pet, and slowly exhale again. You may try yawning while you sit with your dog. Very slowly blink your eyes as you sit with your cat.
Exhale quietly again. Be with your pet. No phone or gadget. Slowly stroke your best friend. If you know TTouch®, do a few TTouches® on your pet and yourself. Try ear slides. Exhale.
As a way of giving thanks to your pet and yourself, try to spend five minutes a day enjoying this special time with your pet. You will feel better and so will they!
