Animal Reiki Scotland – The effects of light therapy on a puppy with a suspected fracture
“I didn’t take photos of this puppy before light therapy treatment. Her condition was very distressing to look at, with her neck extended back and rotated so that her chin sat on her spine. She had been at Tolfa for 4 or 5 days at this point, being given food and water via syringe.
She was alert though and followed you with her eyes as her neck muscles were completely locked. I decided to use Photizo purely to try and give some pain relief, applied twice per day, morning and late afternoon over her neck and thoracic area with full contact followed by general application to the rest of her body by holding at a short distance.”
Day 1 – Muscles still locked but pup appears more comfortable (less vocal) and by the end of the day is trying to move and turn over
Day 2 – Caregiver reports that vet has noticed muscles relaxing
Day 3 – Her neck and head are back to normal position, legs still immovable and locked
Day 4 – Legs become more flexible and trying to stand. Comfortable being held and able to eat and drink on her own
