My husband and I work with two rescue groups in the Houston area. By default I’m the adoption chair for Houston Area Afghan Hound Rescue ( www.houstonafghanhound.net) and we foster for Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue (www.GBGRR.org).
We usually adopt older guys and gals with medical challenges. This blog serves as my diary. It is not meant to prescribe, nor advise. It’s just my diary. I have a certification in veterinary homeopathy and gemmotherapy which I use for my own pets and fosters. I’m also an advanced Reiki practitioner. I use Reiki on myself, my own pets, my friends and their pets. I had a major breakthrough with the use of cell salts on an older Afghan with terrible ear infections, thus the name of this blog.
This Blog is also here to pass on information about excellent sources of holistic care for animals.
These ideas are not meant to be a substitute for veterinary care. Please make an appointment with your veterinarian when your pet is ill or when you sense something is just not right. If your pet has a chronic ailment, you may do well to research some of the ideas in this blog for your pet’s health as an addition to good veterinary care.
I’m a professional harpist and also own a harp print music specialty store, called “Melody’s Traditional Music”. (www.folkharp.com) It is named after a beloved Afghan Hound named Melody (1987 – 1998). We also publish harp music (www.afghanpressmusic.com). I earned my certificate in veterinary homeopathy from the British Institute of Homeopathy August 2008, and am currently completing the diploma course from the same institution. My experience with cell salts is that they are excellent for very depleted dogs. Since we rescue, very unfortunately we see this a lot. Often in these cases, the Dog must be built up from the very core of their physical, emotional and spiritual Being. Cell salts help with this. One of our rescues, Augusta, was one such case. Kidney disease, HW positive, severe and resistant ear infections, maggots under her matted fur, bad teeth, and more from being left out in the Texas heat for 5 months with little food or water. Cell salts helped her tremendously. I have also used cell salts on our cat’s abscesses, and after TPLO surgery on Mendelssohn, a cow dog mix who surprisingly, after years of good health, tore up his knee while simply running in the back yard. I am a proponent of cooked or raw food, and also use high quality kibble. I am not in a position at this time to do any consultations, as I have a regular job You are welcome to ask me questions, however.

I do not diagnose or treat any type of dis-ease. The energy work I do is not a substitute for medical treatment. Please go to your doctor if you have a medical condition that persists. The work that I do is supportive, and should not be your only form of self-care or care for your pet. Nothing replaces the knowledge and advice of a good veterinarian.
