Thanks to all our subscribers who emailed me best wishes on my knee replacement surgery. And thanks to those of you needing sessions and being so understanding about some delays.  It’s been a rough month recuperating and I still have a ways to go, as I’m having trouble bending my knee as much as it should bend. But I’m working hard at it and I WILL get there. And I am definitely feeling better.

And of course, this time of year is when we particularly think about  being thankful. Please know that I am sincerely grateful and thankful for all of my wonderful subscribers and clients, both human and animal. I feel so fortunate to have gotten to know so many of you personally through your animals. Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.

From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
Animal Emotions

A friend recently lost his 5 year old Golden Retriever to an unusual disease. The family is trying to get past their loss and is also thinking about what is best for their 10 year old Retriever, who is now alone.  In speaking with them, I suggested that they look at rescuing a slightly older dog who might not stress their older dog, like a puppy might.

If you are considering replacing a member of your animal family or just adding to your family, consider rescuing an animal. There’s the local shelter or many rescue groups around the country who focus on a particular breed.
In communicating with many rescued animals, I cannot begin to express the gratitude they have toward their new family for the new life they’ve been given.  Even when an animal is in a temporary home waiting to be placed, there is such a sense of relief from the animal that someone cares about them.

As many of you have read before in my articles, our domestic animals have a real sense of family with their people. Over and over again they tell me how they love being part of a family.  When this reality is shattered because a family must give up their animal, many animals become depressed and feel as if their life does not have any worth because they are no longer part of the family.

Although many times there are good reasons why people cannot keep their animals, how the transition is handled is important. Finding a good home with loving people is generally the best alternative, as many animals who go to shelters carry this sadness with them for much of their lives.  But this may not be possible.
Unfortunately, the animals in kill shelters know that they have come to the end of the road. They are very aware of what is going on around them, including the fact that they may be euthanized. This is an extremely stressful time for our animals between change to their diet, feeling abandoned by their family, the new smells and sounds, and knowing that their life may end soon.

Those animals who are rescued realize that the person who rescues them has given them their life back.  Although we may think that’s a wonderful ending to the story, unfortunately, some of the animals carry this trauma with them for some time. It may show itself in emotional stress through poor behavior or a depressed physical being. But with patience and a person in their life who will love them and help them heal emotionally, these animals can live a wonderful life giving companionship and much more to their new family.

So consider rescuing an animal the next time you want a new member in your family. If there’s some difficulty in the transition, consider the assistance of an animal communicator who can reassure the animal, help them release their past and let them know all the good that is coming in the future.

Thanks to all of you who are involved in this work on a regular basis as well as the individuals who have given abandoned animals a new home.  All of you who touch the lives of animals in some positive way hold a very special place in their hearts

Helpful Information

This past month, I received some interesting and helpful information for people who have Sharpeis as part of their family. Thanks to Bonnie F. of Kirkland, WA who provided us information on a new benefit for her Sharpei, Shawnee,  that she asked us to pass along, as people may not be aware of this.

Bonnie told us that Sharpeis are vulnerable to a breed malady call Sharpei fever. The dog runs a high fever sometimes accompanied by swollen hocks. This does damage to their kidneys and once they have a first attack there is a medication to help protect them from future attacks.

Bonnie mentioned that the medication is expensive, however, if the owner has a lower income, is retired or living on Social Security, there is an organization that will help with the cost.

The website to seek assistance is  http://www.takeda.us/responsibility/patient_assistance_program.aspx with a toll free number for questions at 1-800-830-9159

Since Bonnie’s first email to us about this information, she received her free mediation. She mentioned that they are tiny pills that are easy to give as they fit easily into a pill popper. The name of the medicine is Colcrys which is colchicine .6 mg. Bonnie said that Shawnee  takes 1 pill a day for two weeks then twice daily after that.

Bonnie, thank you so much for this information. I am sure all our subscribers with Sharpeis will find this very helpful. And of course, feel free to pass this information on to your friends and family.

Thanks again, Bonnie!
