When a Rat is Getting Sick

0

One morning our rescue rat Samantha started to walk in circles and tilting her head to the side. We rushed her to the veterinarian last Monday. The veterinarian told us that it could be a neurological problem.

Samantha got three shots;  for pain, vitamins and cortisone. We made a re-check appointment a couple of days later. However, if not better, come in right away.

Samantha became a little better but still, she fell when she tried to wash herself.

Friday came and we took Samantha with us to the appointment. We were nervous, still, she wasn’t herself. She hadn’t been eating, only drinking, –plus yogurt–. My favorite veterinarian Stephanie (Frau Spotl) greeted us when we walked into her clinic. She took Samantha and looked into her ears.

Bingo! Samantha got an ear infection!

Bacteria test was being made and sent away to the laboratory. Meanwhile, Samantha got antibiotic, pain medicine and protein food with her home.

It was amazing to see Samantha a couple of hours later, eating and feeling so much better. Her caretaker Olivia was most happy. We all had been scared to lose Samantha.

Why I like my veterinarian so much, some have asked me.

She listens, she teaches, she cares and she laughs. That’s for me is a Golden Keeper. Down in southern Italy, I had the same veterinarian, Dr. Damiani for four years before moving to Germany. His passion and teaching will I always carry with me.

That’s Amore!

 

The Horses Still Need Help

0

The transformation with our three rescue horses are a very fantastic gift back to follow, but we cannot end our help only because they look great on the outside.

They still need our help with healthy nutritional food, their medicines, and dental work. Veterinarian visits, and sometimes x-rays.

We are running out of funds and truly need your help.

GummiBears Heart medicine cost 100 euro/month.

Blood tests to monitor how the medicines are working/helping

Vaccinations are 50 euro per horse/ six months (+-)

Farrier 60-80 euro per horse/8-12 weeks, since their hooves are still in bad shape.

Dentists are coming up this weekend, and that will be around 150 euro per horse.

We cannot give up on the horses because of the “costs” and our values. GummiBear, Rihanna, and Miracle have all worked so hard for us humans. For our pleasure and many times our ego. Isn’t it our job to give thanks back?

This summer we will start different new projects. Our horses play an important role in our “Horses Healing Children”,  and the Therapeutic Horse Program for Children with special needs. Keep an eye out for our announcement.

Also, we have several horses waiting to come to our Sanctuary. It’s amazing people all around Europe have heard about our fantastic transformation with the rescue horses.

They are getting all the treatments they need. We listen to the horse’s desires, and “special” compose their programs for the days. Not all rescue horses want to walk in a pasture all days.

In my experience, many of the horses have gone into their own “mind” to survive their daily work. Some are racehorses, polo horses, riding school horses, private horses, every horse that hasn’t been treated with respect can get a mental breakdown. When they come to us we let them rest and work only by observing them.

Healing and Animal Communication.

It only takes a few days until the horses open up. Trust has been built between us.

When the horse gets an ok from the veterinarian healthwise, we create what the horses want and need.

GummiBear 25 years-old, would like to eat the whole day 🙂 and he loves his walks and play ‘follow John” in the riding arena, be out in the green big pastures. Like an old man appreciating his retirement. He loves Rihanna, our other rescue power girl. He loves company. He doesn’t want to be “alone” among working horses anymore. So we let him have that (not overeating of course).

Miracle 28 years old (soon) loves to be part of the horse community, walking around together with me greeting them all, eating a lot of carrots, and be part of everything we do. Sometimes riding a little, but only slow pleasure riding looking at all the trees.  So we let him have that.

Rihanna, 20 years-old, our power Princess Warrior girl. What a fighter, and clear in what she wants (and not). Former successful jumper, then the success went dark. Tried as a Riding school horse, but to fast. Left in a box. The Lady at the place called and asked me to take her.

Rihanna is having an amazing mind of her own, and she clearly has shown us she doesn’t want to be on vacation. Rihanna loves to be ridden (carefully) at the jumping arena, to be among the other jumpers, to smell the atmosphere.

Now, can she still jump? Only “bunny” jumps, and we are not out after a jumping horse either. However, what makes her happy will make her into a content (happy) horse.

Surely, we make her be in the atmosphere of her past good memories, and we, we let her remember.

We let them all remember, what it ones felt to be appreciated.

That’s Amore!

Working on those Pretty Hoofs

0

When we look at the picture to the left, I am amazed that he is 26 years old. He looks great.

Today the Blacksmith came and had his hoofs looked over. When he came to our Retirement Home for older Animals, we knew his hoofs were not in great shape.

He has been treated for Abscess and he still got Trush. Stubborn old Trush. It is a little better since he came (October 2017) Working hard to eliminate that.

We got many great recomendations of different treatments that we are trying on him.

He is such a great horse our Senior Rescue Miracle from Italy, here in south Germany with Swedish caretaker and American Sponsor. Multiculture kindness.

That’s Amore!
