What is the Biggest Mistake People Make with Their Pets?
As an animal communicator and medical intuitive, I work with a wide variety of pets who are experiencing problems of one kind or another. Some of the most common issues I routinely encounter are:
behavior issues (spraying, inappropriate peeing and pooping, fighting)
psychological problems (separation and general anxiety, depression, PTSD)
acute or ongoing health problems — particularly with aging pets
pets who have gone missing
animals nearing the end of their life
People work with me because they care about their pet’s well being — they want the very best for their beloved companions. And even though each pet and situation is different, there is one big mistake I see over and over again. Can you guess what it is?
They all waited till the problem was really bad before calling me.
They waited while their rabbit had been experiencing upper respiratory difficulties for six months. They put up with two sibling cats who fought each other daily for seven years. They endured having to clean sprayed pee and dog poop off of their carpeting, for weeks at a time. They did not call me till five months after their cat lost interest in food and had begun losing alarming amounts of weight. They did not get in touch till their dog had already been missing for a month. They delayed till their dog stopped eating, drinking, or was able to stand. They kept boarding their dog at the same kennel even though they knew he clearly didn’t like it. They tolerated howling caused by separation anxiety until their neighbors complained and their marriage was strained. These are just a few real-life cases that I have worked on. And as you might imagine, I have many more examples.
These clients all “waited it out,” hoping things would magically resolve — or because they just didn’t know what else to do, or where else to turn. And I get it — an animal communicator such as myself usually receives a call only after every other option has been exhausted for their pet: blood work and x-rays that didn’t show any issues, multiple, inconclusive check-ups, scatter shot attempts to locate their missing dog or cat, weeks of indecision over euthanasia, or years of unhappiness with strange and anxious behavior.
The single best thing you can do for your pet is not to wait till things get that bad. The earlier we can catch a problem, the better chance we have for the quickest resolution. As part of your overall team, I can support you in ways you probably haven’t even considered. Here are just three common examples: I offer a wellness check which includes my intuitive medical check-in, making an action plan with you that pro-actively helps your pet, and a follow-up to discuss findings and next steps. I can answer the mystery of “what’s my rescue’s story?” so that we can understand and fix troubling behaviors, helping you live a happier life together. And I can help you in making difficult end-of-life decisions that will lessen suffering for you and your animal.
The support I give you also helps you with “outside of the box” thinking for other solutions — and I often make suggestions for options you probably haven’t considered. It is always helpful to have an unbiased opinion from an objective outsider — particularly if you are a single “pet parent.”
There is no good reason to wait — especially because of my free Discovery Session where you can learn about how I can help with your pet’s specific problems. Please take advantage of it — that’s what it’s there for!
By the way, I was ultimately able to reunite Winston, a Labrador, after approximately 2 weeks of working with Phyllis, his owner — even though he had been already been missing for a month by that point. They went on to have many more happy years together, which was wonderful. But just imagine how much easier it would have been on them both if Phyllis had only called me right after he ran off!
