Soul to Soul Newsletter
Dear ,
Happy Summer! It's gorgeous here in Western North Carolina with the gardens overflowing and life buzzing all around.
This newsletter includes tips for summer safety for your four-legged companions. Also included are  announcements for some fun workshops that I'll be hosting at my home in September & October, including an Advanced Animal Communication class and a New offering - Shamanic Journeying. I hope you will be able to join me. In the meantime, may you and your beloved animal companions have a fun and beautiful season.
Wishing you joy and many blessings,
Stress-Free Summer Fun For You & Your Animal Companions
Stay Hydrated. Bring water along on any excursions regardless of length of time since unexpected delays can happen. Some signs of dehydration include: lethargy, loss of appetite, sticky gums and decreased skin elasticity. Signs of heat stroke include excessive panting; unsteadiness; noisy breathing; collapse; bright red gums; swollen tongue; vomiting. Animals with kidney disorders, cancer, diabetes, elderly, or pregnant animals are more susceptible. The higher the humidity, the more difficult it is for dogs to shed heat.
Pupsicles & Catsicles.  A fun way to cool off and stay hydrated: combine equal parts water with chicken stock; or combine the liquid from a tin of sardine or can of tuna (packed in water) with 1/2 cup of water; pour into ice cube trays, freeze, serve in water bowl.
Keep On The Grass. Blazing sun causes sidewalks and roadways to really heat up. If the pavement hurts your bare feet, then it's too hot for sensitive dog paws too. Walking on the grass is the best option. If you live in an urban area, choose the shady side of the street. Early morning or late evening walks offer cooler temperatures as well.
Buckle Up. It's tempting to let your pup sit on your lap while driving; yet this can be distracting and dangerous. Hit the brakes and Rover could come hurling forward and be injured, as well as the driver. It's safer for all when dogs are safely settled into the back. Depending upon your dog's personality and temperament, consider a partition, crate or perhaps a body harness that buckles into the seat belt. I used the latter with my dog when driving my convertible. She enjoyed her ears flapping in the breeze and I felt at ease knowing she was perfectly secure.
Quell The Queasies. Some dogs get car sick; symptoms range from vomiting or diarrhea to whining, pacing, panting or drooling. Depending upon the duration of your trip and severity of your dog's reaction, consider Flower Essences for calming or talk with your vet about other car sickness options.
No Ticks Please. Lyme disease is a painful and chronic condition for animals as well as people. Whether you choose the natural route or use conventional tick prevention medications, it's important to keep you and your animal companions protected. Set an alarm in your phone or mark your calendar to stay on top of regular treatments.
Enjoy the Summer!
