Need a remedy for your dog's ailments? Consider essential oils for dogs

When it comes to helping your pet feel better, a treat, a comfortable place to rest or help from your vet probably comes to the top of your mind. But have you ever thought about administering essential oils for your dog?

Many of us recognize the benefits of essential oils when applied to our own bodies but we don't think that those healing properties will transfer over to our fury companions. That couldn't be further from the truth.

In fact, oils such as Roman chamomile can have a soothing effect on your dog, helping to ease muscle pain. Lavender oil can have a calming effect while providing anti-bacterial protection and geranium is useful for its anti-fungal properties as well as being a tick repellant.

Essential oils for dogs offer many beneficial uses but it's important to remember to use 100 percent pure/therapeutic grade oils. Lesser quality oils are commonly blended oils and may expose your pet to harmful substances you weren't aware of.

Many pure oils should be diluted before they are applied to your pet and it is important to remember you should always keep oils away from your dog's nose, mouth or eyes.

If you are interested in the soothing, preventive powers available in essential oils, the first step is to discuss your options with your holistic vet. Your vet will point you in the right direction and give you the best advice to care for your pet.
