Holistic Pet First Aid & Emergency Treatment

Not all animals die from plant and mushroom poisoning. The extent of poisoning symptoms depends on the plant or mushroom ingested, as well as the amount eaten. The most common symptoms are stomach upset, drooling and disorientation.

If you suspect your dog, cat, puppy, kitten or pet ate, licked or ingested some plants or mushrooms, and you start seeing ill symptoms, these are a few things you can do:

  • If you can, identify the plant or mushroom, even collect a sample. This will help your veterinarian and our animal healer help your sick pet much easier.

  • Contact us for our long distance healing service immediately. We can start the healing process and reverse toxic effects for your pet 'remotely' right away without loosing precious time.

  • Take your pet to the veterinarian for emergency care such as fluids and oxygen.

  • Since many veterinarians do not have the specific tool to save your pet for mushroom and plant poisoning, though they can stabilize your animal and buy time, we strongly suggest visiting your local vet while using our long distance healing service to help your pet at the same time. We have specific remedies for plant and mushroom poisoning that we can send energetically via long distance. Remote healing may sound strange to your mind but it works. We do it every day!
