Health And Animal Instincts: How Do They Know?

It happens a lot. I get the call or email from a desperate pet owner whose dog/cat/horse/ has a mysterious health issue, and the veterinarians are coming up empty-handed.

It is not fun when your fur-kid is not acting like itself. His appetite is off, he is not wagging his tail much and he seems lethargic. The vet has run blood work and tells you everything appears normal. You have a nagging feeling that will not go away. Spot just isn’t right.

When I work with these clients, whether by a telephone consultation or an in-person visit, one of the first things I do is perform what I call a body scan. This is a technique I have taught in my workshops over the years. The animal communicator slowly reviews the body, nose to tail, of the pet.

For me, I find it easier to close my eyes (yours truly is easily distracted by visual stimuli) as I begin by visualizing an “inside” tour of the critter’s body. If you ever watched the movie “Fantastic Voyage,” where they shrink down a team of scientists and inject them into the VIP patient to repair his critical injuries, you have an idea of the sort of pictures pets tend to send me.

I see the teeth, and a cat may point out where she has fractured a molar. As I peer through the eyes, a horse shows me the blur where a cataract has begun to obscure his vision. I continue on, checking out all of the senses, noting any imbalances, discolorations or foreign masses in each part of the body.

Most pets coping with serious health challenges will immediately draw my attention to the problem area, even if the owner has given no indication as to what the problem is. Sometimes I begin a reading unaware a medical issue prompted the call, and the pet immediately sends pictures of the problem area to me! It is just like a human might immediately inform their doctor about a new problem at a check-up.

Most of the time the animals will send pictures and emotions that convey to me whether the area I am viewing is a problem for them. We may think of an enlarged heart as worrisome, but four-leggeds might not see it as a problem unless they are competing in serious athletic sports such as agility, racing, or search and rescue. But when it comes to “talking” about the source of their current problems, the majority are quick to show and tell.

Sometimes the problems are straight-forward; an undetected thyroid condition, intolerance to a particular food ingredient or reaction to a recent medication or cleaning product. Other times, the pet may send images of a small tumor beginning to form somewhere inside the body or a liver that is heading south.

Over the years I have learned animals tend to be aware of cells “going rogue” far earlier than any method of detection currently available. It is a common occurrence at the events I attend annually for people to walk up and say something like, “You did a reading for me last year and told me that my ____ had a tumor/growth forming ____.”
