Blast from the Past at New Skete


Laser Therapy

Laser therapy also known as laser acupuncture is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration, reduce inflammation and increase blood circulation.

During this session, a laser will be used to stimulate acupuncture points on the body that are specific for reducing pain, promoting circulation and boosting the immune system. It does not require the animal to be still. Most dogs love it. (Sometimes cats want to chase it!)

While visiting the Monks of New Skete and their Divine Canine companions, I was honored to be able to treat Boris who hurt his paw. with the laser. We miss seeing the monks and their gorgeous German Shepherds now that we have moved south to Alexandria VA.

Fleas Be Gone!


To rid your home of fleas, spread a box of Mule Team Borax (available in your store’s laundry soap isle), over your carpet. Use a broom and sweep it into the carpet. Wait a couple of hours then vacuum. The residual borax that remains in the carpet will kill the fleas and their larvae simply by drying them out.

Make sure your pets do not walk on the floor while the Borax is there. It can be absorbed into their feet.

Wishing you a flea-free summer from all of us at Four Paws Healing!
