doTerra Essential Oils for Dogs, Part 1




Essential oils are not just for us, but fantastic for pets too!

I know many friends who use Lavender oil and Calming Blend to help their dogs calm down during trips to the veterinarian, thunderstorms, fireworks and to help them sleep.

Dogs respond incredibly well to essential oils. The essential oils work fast and get into the bloodstream within 20 seconds of being applied.

As with all high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils, only a small amount of oil is needed to be effective. Since dogs vary greatly in size and sensitivity, use tiny amounts of essential oil for dogs with sensitive skin as well as on puppies. The essential oils can be diluted with coconut oil.

When applying essential oils on dogs, avoid getting the oils in the eyes. If a small amount of oil does go into the eye, flush with milk as needed. Apply the oils between the toes and on the pad of the foot when doing foot applications. The essential oils can be diffused aromatically to improve a dog's mood, purify the air and open the airways. Topically the oils can be massaged onto the dog and taken internally. As always, please consult with your veterinarian first.
