Animal Reiki brings the practice to life and gives us things we can all relate to with our own animals. -- Holistic Horse Magazine, December 2006
From the Publisher

I've also used the methods from this book on our neighbors' cows that strayed onto our ranch. The first time, they stood watching me very intently. The second time, I had four calves come up to me and one sniffed my hand and then licked it a couple of times. These are all cattle that are not tame in any way and are normally pretty wary. The next day, when I was walking to my car, that same calf left his mother's side to practically stand in my way--as if to say, "More, please!" (I knew it was the same one because it has an ear tag and I remembered the number!)
Recently, I've been sending Reiki, according to the book's methods, to a feral cat that we've been feeding. Before I started doing that, she would keep her distance from me and run if I got too close. Just today I sent her Reiki from a distance of about 10 feet. She got up, stretched and came up to within about 4 feet of me, curled up and closed her eyes and dozed. She was quite relaxed. This made me very happy because it's one of the indications the authors mention that an animal will show when it is accepting and enjoying Reiki.
I think the most important thing I learned from the book was that we should ask the animals first if they wish to receive Reiki, and to tell them to take only as much as they want. Allowing them to make the decision instead of you making it for them is the key here. I look forward to continuing to use the principles from this book every chance I get.
The authors really focus on how we can help animals with Reiki and and they manage to avoid the common flaw of many Reiki books that ramble on who is right or wrong among all the Reiki schools.
Fantastic and inspiring book!!!
This book lead me to believe that I could learn and practice Reiki on my pet. According to the back of the book, "Whether you're a newcomber to the field of energy medicine, . . ."
This book, I am sure is great for a Reiki master but it is not good for someome that does not know Reiki.
