Important Guidlelines to Follow:
Always use 100% pur therapeutic or medicinal grade essentials oils, I only use and recommend doTERRA.
How to Introduce Your Dogs Properly:
Epileptic & Seizure Prone Animals:
Special concern should be taken as it is believed that certian oils such as: Rosemary, Fennel, Sage, Eucalyptus, Hyssop, and Camphorare may trigger a response. This has been studied in people, though not clinically researched in pets, it is best to err on the side of caution.
Consulting your veterinarian is best when wanting to add EO's to their health regimen. Topical application of Wintergreen, Cassia, Blue Tansy, Fennel, Clove, Cinnamon, Oregano, and Sweet Birch should be avoided. Though it is published that diffusing said oils are still safe.
Care should be taken when using essential oils with pregnant pets. Following the guidelines set for human pregnancy is relevent. Dilute: Clove, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Ginger, Marjoram, Oregano, Peppermint. Consult your veterinarian for use with: Basil, Cassia, Cinnamon Bark, Clary Sage, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Thyme, Vetiver, Wintergreen, and White Fir. Note - mint may decrease milk production.
