Hello

Please could anyone with experience of providing Reiki to animals advise me on whether I would need to get permission from the animal's vet in the first instance or would the consent of its owner be sufficient?

I would also be intrigued to know what views/opinions you come across from vets about giving Reiki to animals.

Are there any books anyone would recommend in relation to animal reiki?

Many thanks in advance

Danielle

Hello Danielle
Animal Reiki is an area I would like to get into and I have been doing a bit of research (I'm only treating family and friends' pets at the moment so can only give an opinion from that angle currently). I think I would definitely ensure the owner is aware that as I am not a vet they would need to take their pet to the vets with any problems. I would explain clearly on the consent form that I am not there to diagnose but to provide comfort to the animal and hopefully healing on an emotional level.My treatments serving as a complementary addition to any veterinary treatment healing the physical body. A book I found interesting was "Animal Reiki" by Elizabeth Fulton and Kathleen Prasad. I would be interested to know vet viewpoints too.
Hope that's okay as a starter. :o) Lisa

In accordance with veterinary law, we are supposed to inform/ask permission of the animal's vet before treating. I've found some vets are open to Reiki but some are non-committal......
