Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Thanks to the testimonials on this website, our cat survived being hit by the back tire of my husband's truck. The cat had apparently been napping on the under-carriage of the truck bed.

After three hours at an emergency vet clinic, I took my cat home against medical advice because I was just uncomfortable with that place. I decided he could wait to have x-rays and further diagnostic work at my own vet's practice.

"Tommy Boy" had no visible signs of anything broken, but was in shock and obviously having trouble breathing. They had given him oxygen therapy, and sent me home with four doses of pain medication (to be administered every 8-12 hours) which heavily sedated him.

Once home I immediately searched this website and found just what I was looking for. I didn't have all of the oils, but what I used worked amazingly well. I used a sheet to make a tent over his crate. I set my diffuser up with 6 drops of Frankincense, so that it would go flow around his crate. I diluted 3 drops of the PanAway oil blend with about a teaspoon of olive oil, which went on the pads and between the toes of his feet. I used the same dilution for the RC oil blend and put that inside the tips of his ears.

As one of the testimonials on this website mentioned, (from the veterinarian - Melissa), the first 24 hours was the worst. I gave him the pain medication received at the vet's office at 10 pm that night. I checked on him throughout the night, administering more of my oils, and trying to get a little water down him.

His turn-around came as the heavy medication wore off. I was waiting for the vet's office to open when I realized he was quickly improving. I kept up the regimen throughout the day, and my vet agreed that I could just watch him, and bring him in later.

Miraculously, through God's favor, Tommy Boy spent one more night under the diffuser with his oils, but he is absolutely enjoying one of his 8 remaining lives... he was completely back to himself after 30 hours.
