My 15 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Brandi, is experience neurological
problem in back legs – mainly left. Making it hard to walk. Her vet
does not recommend meds due to kidney, heart and pancreastis issues. I
am looking for an alternative to improve her quality of life
There are dozens of ways you can help Brandi. Probably the very very best is to begin to work with Dr. Bernstein by phone, using homeopathy. He is a long time breeder of Cavaliers so knows them very very well and you can share many general stories while working on helping Brandi walk better AND help her many other issues as well.
WHAT YOU CAN DO YOURSELF (or find trained healers near you)

FIND A hEALER
I DO strongly recommend finding an integrative veterinarian with whom to work. This is a person trained in many different approaches, including using conventional drugs only when absolutely needed. Working with one can increase the chance that your cherished companion can live a long and healthy life after recovering from this current problem. There are good ones and great ones, and a few homeopathic veterinarians will consult by phone or email. Read my comments at the end on working with and selecting a holistic veterinarian.
You can go to the web sites for each type of holistic practice and use their referral list to find one near to you:
1. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine: www.IVAS.org, www.avaa.org & www.TCVM.com
2. Homeopathic veterinarians (these can often help you by phone if no other holistic practitioners are nearby that you like): www.theAVH.org and www.DrPitcairn.com.
3. Chiropractor – www.animalchiropractic.org
4. Wide range of other treatments: www.AHVMA.org, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and www.civtedu.org.
Personally, I think every person who lives with or works with animals must know at least Level I Reiki. The practitioner offers this energy and the animal comes over to get it (or places her hands upon the animal), or it can be done from a distance, even around the world with the intent for healing to occur. The energy flows through the healer into the animal. This is based on directly applying Chi (energy) to rebalance the energy field so it no longer needs to produce the physical symptoms. It is a very good adjunct to any healing modality, especially to relieve pain and inflammation. I have seen cats who began to eat again when their food was treated with Reiki. It also “takes the bad out of” things. By doing Reiki on smelly water in restaurants I have been able to drink sweet tasting and smelling water. Use Reiki anytime that you must give injections, vaccines, drugs, flea or heartworm drugs, or other substances with potential toxicity. Reiki is great to calm animals, relieve discomfort, and can deeply heal some problems in some animals.

3. http://www.animalreikisource.com/. If you cannot find a Reiki Class near you (same class for people and animals as it connects you through an “attunement” to the healing energy of the universe, making you a channel of healing), the following groups offer long distance, free, attunements.
c. www.ReikiBlessings.com offers free Reiki attunements, classes and training on-line and animal classes, too
