My dog is sick. Can Animal Bridges do energy work?

RAFA

My phone rang at 6:30 pm and Patsy of Florida asked if I could help her dog. My dog is sick. I asked what was going on.

Patsy said another animal communicator from Minnesota, Mary Stoffel, had talked with her dog RAFA. RAFA, a 10-month old Labrador puppy, had emergency surgery 24-hours before for a blockage. He had swallowed an object just smaller than a golf ball. The communicator said he needed some energy work and recommended Patsy call me.

I told her to ask the veterinarian if I could do energy work on RAFA since he was under the clinic’s care. In the meantime, Patsy was driving 30 minutes to get to him.

Sydney

 

Sydney, an 11-year old “American Traveler” needed surgery to remove a small cancerous tumor from her jaw. In the past Sydney howled as she came out of anesthesia. Luana Hanson-Martin, her pet parent, was concerned how Sydney would handle surgery and anesthesia and asked for some recommendations.

I suggested doing a distance Healing Touch for Animals® (HTA) with Sydney as she came out of the anesthesia. Sydney’s vet agreed HTA  was a good idea. We agreed Luana would call me when Sydney was out of surgery.

Healing Touch for Animals® Helps Dog Recover from Anesthesia

dog-recovery

dog-recoveryMorris, the rescue dog, was scheduled to be neutered and I agreed to do a Healing Touch for Animals® (HTA) treatment when he came home from after surgery. When he got to his foster home, he acted like a dog after surgery. He was under the affects of the anesthesia. He would stand and not move. His eyes were glassy and he didn’t react to his Foster Mom calling him. Using HTA, I worked to energetically cleanse and clear any congested energy from Morris’ body. I also worked in the specific areas of his surgery to enhance healing. I also used essential oils. When I completed the session, we took Morris outside. He didn’t have the coordination to walk. His Foster Mom and I help him walk into the house. He was hungry and ate. Then we moved him to the couch where we thought he would sleep off the anesthesia.

His Foster Mom walked me to the door. Before I reached the end of the block, Morris got off the couch by himself and walked to the back door. She let him outside. He walked on his own and went to the bathroom. He was alert and his tail was wagging! Just 10 minutes before, he couldn’t walk on his own power.
