Essential oils for dogs… Can they really help my fur-baby have a healthy long life? ABSOLUTELY!!! In fact, they can be the most cost effective solution for many health ailments.
Essential oils are good for everyone in the family including the dog, cat, bird, horse, and even the pet rat! And as always, one of my favorite reasons for using essential oils
vs. drugs is there are NO Side Effects!
And did I mention cost effective? I guess the cost savings has been pretty exciting for me since I've probably saved close to, if not more than $1,000 by in the last few years on vet bills and prescription costs. Not to mention my dogs enjoy their oils much more then they ever did going to the vet.
This is a big concern for many new to the oily life and I know there’s lot of controversy about using essential oils for dogs, or any animal for that matter, but the problem is not with the essential oil itself, but with the quality of oil that is used. If you are not using the purest and highest quality of genuine therapeutic grade essential oils, then yes, you are putting your beloved pet in danger!
However, using essential oils for dogs can be the biggest blessing for both you and your faithful friend by helping them to obtain healing, like humans, on both the physical and emotional level.
And yes, it is true; our pets also have emotions and can suffer physically because of them. Our pets are also greatly effected by our emotions too, rather they be good or bad. So it's important to try to be happy and positive when around them.
My 4-legged fur-babies have been oiled and their diets supplemented with oil infused supplements since learning the power of these precious plant oils back in 2010.
I have been able to use essential oils for cuts, gashes, major skin issues that I didn't even know what was wrong, to eliminating surgeries and much more.
My Caesar boy, as seen in the picture, was bound for surgery on his knee, according to several vets, but let me tell you... I can't even tell that he has a bad knee anymore and the need for surgery is a thing of the past. I mean when the leash comes out... there is no stopping him! In fact, this picture was taken just a couple years at the top of a mountain where we live.
I really love being able to care for four legged friends at home. I literally use my oils for everything and have yet to need to take them to the vet.
Happy me… happy dogs! Oh, and happy pocket book!
Natural healing with essential oils, is not just for man, but for man’s best friend too!
I haven't encountered an issue yet that I haven't been able to resolve with my essential oils.
Below are just a few of the ways pet owners all over the world are using genuine therapeutic grade essential oils to help support and improve their dogs health, naturally, and with excellent results:
The uses of essential oils for dogs is truly endless and I continue to learn different ways essential oils can be used to benefit my fur-babies. They can literally aid and support your dog's entire physical and emotional well being, just like people. And did you know that adding lemon essential oil to their water can even help your grass too! Go figure... detox your dog, get greener grass!
Just like people, dogs can benefit from therapeutic grade essential oils by using them via inhalation or diffusers, taking them internally and applying them topically.
Educating people on the the uses of essential oils for dogs, children, pregnant women, the sick, and basically everyone with a heartbeat is not my only passion. I also have a passion to help save the lives of as many dog as possible, especially those that are on death row at high kill shelters.
Although I try to support as many pet rescue organizations around the world as I can, I primarily work with a few in Southern California, The Furry Angels Foundation and The Little Red Dog, in an effort to save as many from Devore animal shelter in San Bernardino and other local high kills shelters.
I rescued and/or fostered about five last year and still have the mama dog, Evie that I took on in December of 2011 as she and her unborn pups were going to be put to sleep. Can you believe it! How could anyone do such a cruel and heartless thing??? Death of the innocent is NOT the answer!
I know five isn't that many, and not as many as I wish I would help, but just think about how many precious doggie lives would be saved if everyone would just help rescue one dog a year. I'm guessing that's a whole lot more puppy love to go around!
The above picture is Evie inhaling her one of her favorite essential oils. She is so funny… I had such a hard time getting this picture because she actually kept trying to eat the bottle, so please forgive it's poor quality. :)
If you would like to support saving the lives of dogs like Evie by either a financial donation and/or by opening up your heart and home by either providing a dog in need with either a forever home or by just being a foster, please contact Donna at The Furry Angel Foundation or PJ at The Little Red Dog. If it wasn’t for PJ and her rescue organization, Evie and her healthy and happy 6 pups (all of which got loving forever homes) would not be with us today!
By the way... Evie is still looking for her forever home (this is Evie with my Lil Angel). If you would like an active dog who loves to play ball and swim in her kiddie pool and has lot's of love and kisses to give, she is your dog. Please contact me or PJ at The Little Red Dog for more info on adopting her.
