Only a few days after Sammy Diva started her antibiotics, non steroidal medications (those were stopped after people alerted me thank you again), glucosamine tablets and getting 3 reiki sessions a day, did I see a HUGE improvement. In fact, I even researched and bought a ramp over the weekend. And its on it way. I can save it for the future or use it now to help her ease into the car. But Sammy is running up and down the stairs more than ever! The very next day, my husband Mark sent me a text message, the reiki is working! I was so happy to hear. Almost too much … she has been following me everywhere. Lays right next to me as I type away. I believe the reiki worked! I gave her consistent reiki sessions both hands on and distant. We’re going to get her to lose a few more pounds, finish up her antibiotics and closely watch her hips. The Vet did tell me that Sammy’s thyroid may need to get looked at and may be a sign for something more serious. So we’re bracing for that news. But for now, life is good.
ps. She weighs 74lbs! She has been on her diet and doing well! She loves carrots!
Addendum: I just got the call from the Vet. I told her my concerns about the Rimadyl. I told her I am a pharmacist and concerned about the information I found. She was great and comp’d the medication! She said Sammy could be on buffered aspirin if need be in the future. She also consulted a pathologist and her thyroid function is fine!! All is normal. She’ll go back for a urine test once she is done with the antibiotics!
