We have a junk yard dog that was given to us half dead several years ago. He came with mange that the Dr. said it was hereditary kind.

This last spring we were ready to put him out of his misery when we found the young living oils. I had sprayed several oils on him, on his back and feet (oregano, eucalyptus, melaleuca and lavender in a carrier oil). He did not like it but I tried to get it on him when I saw he felt bad. Within minutes he would get up and with a twinkle in his eye.

It has been several months now and he is very much with us and he has hair again. He still has scar tissue so his hair is not all there but he is running on the farm again and barking at strangers :) he feels great.
