Reiki is not intended to replace veterinary treatment/medication, but to work alongside it. No guarantees are implied or stated. If your animal experiences health or medical problems, you should consult a vet.
It is a requirement that you have informed your Vet of the intention to use Reiki as a complementary therapy, alongside their conventional treatment.
Reiki Practitioners do not interfere with the treatment being given by Veterinary surgeon's nor do they prescribe medication, or perform medical treatments.
THE LAW The Veterinary Surgery Act of 1966 prohibits anyone other than a qualified Veterinary Surgeon from treating animal's diagnosing ailments & giving advice on ailments. However, the healing of animals by contact healing of laying on of hands or by distance is legal. The Protection of Animals Act 1911 does require that if an animal is in obvious need of treatment from a Vet, that the owner must obtain this. Reiki Practitioners must have the full assurance that the animal has been examined by a Vet. Under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 (Schedule 3) it is permissible to give emergency first aid to animals, for the purpose of relieving pain or saving life.
