"Susan provided our family a great service when she gave insight on our rescue dog Scout. Susan was spot on in regards to Scout’s rough upbringing in a hoarding situation, letting us know that she wasn’t always able to eat every day and was constantly fending for herself and fighting for her life. Susan let us know that Scout was very happy in her new situation and loved her new family and big house (without other dogs!).
The most valuable information provided was about Scout’s food. We had been feeding her Fromm’s per the rescue’s recommendation, but Susan was able to identify Scout’s consistent upset stomach due to the ingredients of the food. I was impressed with this reading, since Scout was having inconsistent bowel movements and she had thrown up three nights in a row. I told Susan that Scout had been grazing on the food throughout the morning/evening unless we mixed it with wet food. Turns out, dogs only graze when there is something in the food they do not want to eat. Susan recommended a different food and within the first meal Scout was gobbling up her dry food and her bowel movements became much more consistent and she was no longer getting sick!
I plan on using Susan’s services whenever we have a tough situation with Scout and we need some advice!"

"I adopted my dog Josie when she was 13 yrs old. Five months later she became very destructive, I thought it could be separation anxiety. I made a phone appointment with you for an animal reading. During the reading, you said her behavior was due to her having difficulties with some loss of her senses... hearing and eye sight. She didn’t know how to cope with it. You suggested she needed another dog companion to help her through the times that I couldn’t be with her.
I arranged to have Mikey, a lab mix who she had met twice before, come over for a visit. Mikey was dropped off before I left for work When I returned I was surprised to find Josie sound asleep on the couch and Mikey relaxing on the floor. Nothing was disturbed in the house she had not destroyed anything!
Josie’s personality has completely changed from an older seemingly lethargic dog to a young, vibrant, happy puppy-like personality. To see her jump up and down from the couch chasing me and running from one room to the other with tail wagging, you would think I gave her a miracle pill! The miracle was your assessment of her failing senses and knowing that this particular dog needed an animal companion to help her.
I tried to set up more play dates between the two but didn’t succeed for almost a month. No problem, Josie was fine! All I can say is whatever you said to Josie worked. Josie and Mikey enjoy each other’s company and we will continue with future play dates.
Thank you. You’ve given both of us a new life."

"I have counted on Susan several times to help me gain insight into our beloved pets mysteries as a way of making a connection and understanding of what they feel, want, need from me, or my family. My recent experience with Susan was critical to us--we rescued a pit bull mix puppy--soon a skin rash broke out that had us exhausted and tearful. When the vets could not figure out the problem--I knew it was time for another call with Susan. Not only did she figure out the problem, but something unexpected happened. She encouraged me to have my husband Jeff interact with the dog at this time to 'draw him out'.
What Susan didn't know was that my husband's mother and father had recently passed within months of each other. Susan's insight was able to connect a closed hearted Jeff with a little pup to pull him out of his shell and live again--he plays and teaches this dog as I have never seen him do before with any of our animals and he is happy again.
God bless you and your gift! I pray more people will open their hearts and listen to their pets needs through an animal communicator like Susan Deren."

"My friend and I attended your animal event at Winnekenni Castle. You immediately were drawn to me and started talking about my newest dog. You described him in such detail, and what amazed us was the fact that he wasn't there with us, and you had no picture of him. I told you nothing about him.
Well, you gave me very specific things to do to make him happy and to stop destroying our furniture. I took your recommendations very seriously. We all started doing exactly what you told me to do. Well as of today, he hasn't destroyed anything. He is so happy and amazing.
My husband and family are still in shock! They thought he was a hopeless case and we'd have to give him up. Not anymore! We just love the little guy and he is now a happy member of our family. Thank you so much Susan."

"Hi Susan, I don't know if you remember me, but you gave me a reading for my dog Murphy over the phone.
I rescued Murphy and he was a train wreck. You gave me specific things to do that would help him and gave me some great advice about him. Fast forward 1 year later...I have the sweetest best boy on the planet. He is awesome now!"
