Recommends it for: those interested in animals and those interested in Reiki
This book gave me incredible insight, not only into my Reiki practice, but also into how it helps animals. I've used it with my own cats with incredible benefits!

If you have never tried Reiki, it provides a good introduction to Reiki in the first chapter. If you have tried Reiki, it gives some great information on how to use it with animals. I learned so much from reading this book and intend to keep it as a resource for my own Reiki practice!

A very informal book full of personal stories, unlike the structured teaching style of many other reiki books. The authors include the basics and lots of ideas for variations based on your and the animals' needs and your intuition. The chapters each deal with reiki for a specific type of issue (such as type of animal, senior animals, shelter animals, etc.). Thus, there is lots of repetition both within and between chapters. Decent pictures help to illustrate how to perform reiki on many differen ...more

This book is a wonderful example of the use of energy medicine. The way the authors wove together their personal experiences while describing the concepts of Reiki shows the benefits of this healing modality.

Shelves: animals, reference
This book is so well written! While it is especially useful as a reference book for reiki practitioners, it is easy and fascinating reading for anyone. It may even inspire you to learn reiki in order to have a closer, more in-depth relationship with your beloved pets.

As mentioned by others, there is a lot of repetition of throughout out the chapters, but there needs to be. Most, of the procedural steps for giving reiki are the same for all animals. But, the person who needs specific information

It seems appropriate that I finished reading this book on the day that I received certification in Level 1 Reiki.

This book was recommended to me during a session with an animal chaplain after the unexpected death of my youngest cat, Teddy, due to an aneurysm. I was asked by my work volunteering with shelter animals and Rev. Nancy Schluntz suggested that Reiki might be useful to my work in that environment. She recommended that I start by reading this book.

Honestly, I was almost immediately overc

“Animal Reiki: Using Energy to Heal the Animals in Your Life” by Elizabeth Fulton and Kathleen Prasad (2006) earned the “I like it” rating from me. I’ve been recommending this book based on a skim read I did when I first purchased the book years ago. Now that I’ve read it I am really glad that I did. It is filled with inspiring stories that I read aloud to others because they were so special.

These ladies have clearly done a lot of Reiki on animals! It shines through in their respect for the ani

Shelves: health, animals, reiki
This was a very interesting book that really opened my eyes to all of the healing possibilities with Reiki. I enjoyed the individual case studies and the photographs, which helped me to understand the various options for hand positions.

The only thing I found a bit annoying was how often the authors repeated the same information across several chapters when discussing how to treat different species of animals. While they did emphasize the differences between each, I still felt at times as if I wa

Shelves: energy-healing
There are plenty of books on the market covering Reiki for dogs & cats, but this book includes all animals, from fish to birds to horses to wild & farm animals. Elizabeth & Kathleen are so sensitive, respectful & caring toward animals; their love for them is very clear by the tone of voice & advice offered in this book. My only complaint is that the sidebars, as helpful as they are, break up the flow of the book - I wish there was a smoother way to incorporate these heartwarm ...more

I'm a Reiki Master but when it comes to animals, I only have experience in channelling for my own dogs. One of my students wishes to work with animals, in particular horses, so I bought this book which was very informative although repetitive at times. One thing I did not know was that anyone (in the UK) wishing to treat an animal that isn't their own has to legally get permission from the animal's vet.

Great book for anyone interested in expanding their Reiki practice to include animals. Wonderful photos and examples. Authors are extremely intuitive animal communicators.

I was hoping that this would teach you how to *do* Reiki, but it did not. Luckily, I just tried it on my own and saved my cat. :)

Good if you've already taken reiki courses. This will not help if you don't know anything about reiki-it does not teach reiki

So far this book is making me feel comfortable performing reiki on my pets. I have only studied level I Reiki and cannot do distance-healing. But this book makes me anxious to study level II!
