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.

The dog named Abby was really sick with something that was half virus and half bacterial. We suspected it was introduced when she got micro chipped. As soon as she did she had problems with swelling in the area that only got worse.

Vets decided to surgically remove it. They cut two V-shaped incisions on either end of the place of entry. She soon was infected through out her whole system and it was oozing out of the incisions. She was on an antibiotic but was told they weren't sure that it would help or if it was the right one.

This went on for week. As she was bandaged I never saw how bad she was until she started pulling the bandaging off of herself. Once I saw how incredibly infected she was I was shocked. I told the dog's owner that I knew I could help.

After several discussions and a consultation with others that also worked with essential oils, and some muscle testing to determine where to start, we knew we had a long road ahead. Yet, I was confident that this dog's life could be saved, because vets were talking yet more surgery to remove the infection, the owner was thinking of releasing her to spirit. We had a fight ahead.

So first oil we used was the ImmuPower blend, 20 drops in a capsule. Just that made a huge difference, so we knew we were on the right track. I did Raindrop on the little spot on her back that was available as the surgical area took up most of her back. Keep in mind she is a miniature schnauzer.

I soon had to stop that because her skin was getting like shoe leather due to all the toxins coming out. We continued with just oral combination of oils. We did the ImmuPower, Inner Defense, Egyptian Gold, Thieves oil blends and Oregano. We also used Sulfurzyme for her skin and fur.

We alternated the oils to continue to kill off the virus/infection. She was also dealing with a fungal infection due to being on a antibiotic, which by this time was stopped. We didn't do all of these oils at one time but we rotated them until the infection was completely gone. Honestly it took about 6 months but we got it all killed off. She is happy and healthy and living out her life.

I know people are going to ask how much, how often. Without prescribing the best thing I can tell you is this. When you check your essential oils reference book know that they are talking about 150 pound person. So if your working with a 75 pound dog, cut back.

Adjust for the weight of the dog and the issue you are dealing with. Often an infection needs to be hit hard and often. We need to be ready to adjust as well, back off sometimes or hit harder sometimes. You have to watch for signs in the dog.

This truly was one of my most significant success stories. I learned a lot from this. It doesn't matter what anything is called, just that you need to know what you are dealing with. The vets had cultured the infection and that is when they learned it was mycobacteria.

With the use of Young Living Essential Oils and their purity and consistent quality, I knew that little dog could beat this. She did to show her story. I say show because her hair is all fully grown in and she looks great.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: infection,bacteria — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
2.Associated topics: infection,bacteria — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
3.Associated topics: infection,bacteria,antibiotic,fungus — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
4.Associated topics: infection,bacteria — "14 plant essential oils -- anise (Pimpinella anisum), bay leaves (Laurus nobilis), cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), clove (Eugenia caryophyllata), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), hop (Humulus lupulus), Istanbul oregano (Origanum vulgare subsp. hirtum), Izmir oregano (Origanum onites), mint (Mentha piperita), myrtus (Myrtus communis), orange peel (Citrus sinensis), sage (Salvia officinalis), thyme (Thymbra spicata), and Turkish oregano (Origanum minutiflorum) -- were related to inhibition of 10 bacteria (Listeria innocua, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Typhimurium, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Klebsiella oxytoca)."Link

6.Associated topics: bacteria — "Streptococcus pyogenes [strep] plays an important role in the pathogenesis of tonsillitis.... [T]hyme, cinnamon, lemongrass, tea tree, lavender, oregano, clove, palmarosa, or cajeput [melaleuca] EOs [essential oils] are known to be active against Streptococcus pyogenes, while oregano, basil, mint [peppermint], rosemary, and lavender EOs are known to inhibit another Gram-positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus [staph].... We showed that cinnamon presented the higher activity against S. pyogenes compared to the other EOs tested.... 14 [essential oils] showed antibacterial activity against Streptococcus pyogenes.... Among them Cinnamomum verum [cinnamon bark], Cymbopogon citratus [Xiang Mao], Thymus vulgaris CT thymol [thyme], Origanum compactum [oregano], and Satureja montana [Mountain Savory] essential oils exhibited significant antibacterial activity.
