Essentially both dictionary descriptions are the same, however in real life they work very differently. 

Healing a dog’s body is very different to curing an illness

Curing a dog of a physical ailment means the banishment of illness altogether, however to heal is not just physical. 

As well as physical improvements, healing means a strengthening of the mind and spirit.

This is in order to improve the quality of life, even when physical cure may not be possible. 

Healing is about more than just the physical

Healing in action

Cure is restorative, whilst healing is transformative. 

An example of this could be….

A dog is suffering from cancer, where only palliative care is available.

This dog will never be cured will never be cured of the condition, however they may be healed. 

By this we mean using forms on natural healing to improve their quality of life. 

Energy healing, massage, good quality nutrition, mental stimulation will ensure the dog has the best quality of life.

Whilst remaining pain free for as long as they have left. 

Similarly a dog with epilepsy may be healed using natural methods, without pharmaceuticals.

They will never be cured from the condition, however they can live a normal, long and happy life whilst remaining med free. 

Medication isn’t always the answer

As dogs get older they may experience arthritic style complaints.

Where it can be avoided medication is not always the first step.

Long term use of pain killers and steroids can cause complications in other areas of the body such as the liver. 

Its good to look at alternative healing forms

It is important to look at natural alternatives.

Essential oils, massage and energy healing can all reduce pain and inflammation.

Thus easing the joint issue. 

Healing can ease the most difficult of times

Dogs who are ready to cross the rainbow bridge can receive great comfort from energy healing, as can their owners. 

Using gentle energy can aid relaxation and allow the dog to be accepting of what is happening.

It can also provide huge comfort for the dog’s loved ones. 

At this stage obviously the dog will never be cured but healing can provide love and comfort when it is most needed. 

Healing provides comfort when it is most needed
