My services are tailored to your situation;
they generally cover four main areas: health, behavioral/emotional, lost pets and end of life
INCREASING PET HEALTH
I’m medically intuitive and derive great satisfaction from contributing to a pet’s physical well-being or recovery. My experience has been that I get an accurate sense of what is happening physically, but of course I will always suggest that you work with your vet too. In many cases, I may be able to provide information that helps you know how to better work with your vet; for instance, I very often shed light on something that medical tests haven't been able to reveal. I can keep you apprised of healing progress between vet visits. I use safe and gentle energetic healing techniques that help support recovery. I can also help find out if your pet wants particular treatments, medications or foods, whether they are helping or not, or any adjustments you might consider. I might suggest some things that haven't yet been tried. All of these aspects of my work will save you time, frustration, and money.
While I am scanning your pet, it is like I am inside their body, experiencing it as they do. Vets have confirmed that my reports have been accurate.
My healing sessions utilize ancient healing techniques (similar to Reiki, but also different) that are gentle yet powerful. It’s a great way to support traditional medicine, and I've observed that it helps the animal recover more quickly, for example, flushing the system of an infection, or the after-effects of anesthesia.
I also work with your pet’s emotional state, as they often need explanation, reassurance, or simply to be heard.
“Ali Amato is truly amazing. I worked with her and my senior dog Soleil a few months ago. My dog had problems with one of her paws. Without giving her a lot of information she came back with information that was totally on target. It blew me away. By connecting with Soleil she was able to help me research a treatment for her paw that was right on the money. Not only that, she told me things about Soleil’s life on a daily basis that confirmed I was doing things correctly to benefit Soleil. She is now very comfortable and going strong at 15.”

HELP WITH PET BEHAVIOR AND EMOTIONAL ISSUES
Perhaps your pet exhibits a behavior that is puzzling, or has started acting out in ways that are detrimental to themselves or your household. Animals are emotional beings, they can definitely get depressed, anxious or jealous. They remember, and they can feel grief. In my experience, anxiety is extremely common, yet it is often quite treatable. So are depression and PTSD. Sometimes all I need to do is explain something they didn’t understand and a particular behavior (like spraying or fighting) will stop. In other cases, I'll provide insight to you on how their previous history affects them now, and what you can do about it. I have worked with many rescued animals who had trauma in their early lives, and I have found that it’s quite possible for them to heal their trust or separation issues. Each case is different; I'll be creating a custom-crafted plan in order to help your pet's unique situation.
FINDING LOST PETS
Finding lost pets takes time and patience, since it is a stressful situation and pet owners often assume the worst. Despite the odds, I have had excellent success reuniting pets with their households, even after they’ve been gone for a while. The goal is for us to focus efficiently to get them home as soon as possible. I can't stress this enough: the absolute worst thing you can do is try to wait it out or otherwise delay.
I’m able to ascertain why they went missing , and I'll give you locational clues to help you refine and concentrate your search, which saves valuable time, energy and effort and starts putting you both in closer proximity. I've also guided animals to get themselves home on their own, or to place themselves where they can be found. Pets have a remarkable ability to survive & I’ve located and reunited them even after they’ve been gone for what seems an interminable amount of time.

“Ali has a special way of reassuring and encouraging a terrified animal to come out of hiding so that they may be found. She has also correctly identified the terrain, the traumas the animals had been exposed to, and the reasons for their flight.”

ASSISTANCE WITH END OF LIFE TRANSITIONING
If your pet is so sick that you’re considering assisting them in their transition, it can reassure you to hear what they want from you, help you reach a decision sooner about next steps, and feel more at peace with how it is handled. Some sick animals do want help, others just aren’t ready to pass or may not want medical assistance in doing so. Some tell me that they want every possible healing measure taken; others have said that they have lived their life fully and are ready to go. This is obviously the hardest thing a pet lover ever has to deal with; I have been through it myself. The people I’ve worked with have been extremely appreciative that I've helped them through this difficult phase, and that they no longer had nagging guilt about their decisions. The peace of mind they achieved through working with me helped offset their grief. Most importantly, it keeps your pet from unnecessary and prolonged suffering.
I am often asked if I can communicate with animals who have already passed away. Yes, even if your pet is already gone, I can access them. This can be very comforting if you feel there is unfinished business between you, you feel overwhelming grief, or there are other animals in the household who are also changed by the experience. Or you may feel you just want to clarify how the departed is doing. Animals are never really gone from your life, they’re just on a different plane and are still bonded with you forever in spirit. Their love never dies. And when they first pass, they do stay especially close to you for a number of weeks in order to help you to adjust to their absence.
The most wonderful thing I’ve discovered when communicating with pets who have passed is the overwhelming and ongoing gratitude they express for the love and caring you gave them. Knowing that this connection can never be broken really helps.
“Thank you, Ali! We managed to get through the first difficult week without our sweet Ollie. Thank you for your huge contribution to our healing. In gratitude,”
