Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have been using Young Living Essential Oils in my veterinary practice for the past 14 years with great success. The beauty of using these wonderful oils is they help the whole family while treating their best friends the animals.

I have several oils and blends that are my favorites. One of these has to be Peace & Calming. This blend works well on cats and dogs. I massge it directly on the dogs ears and back when I work with them and they love it. Cats prefer not having it put on them but rather diffused into the area we are working in. Many animals have not so good memories of going to veterinary hospitals, so they get a little nervous about returning to one. The Peace & Calming makes this process much better for them.

Frankincense is my favorite single oil for treating animals. You can use it directly on cats, horse, rats, mice, snakes, birds or dogs with no problem. I mainly use it to help them heal if they are injured or to help their immune systems deal with infections, stress or cancer. You can appy it directly on tumors or wounds and it will help the body heal itself more efficiently.

Purification is an excellent blend for detoxing any form bite, such as insects, snakes or animals bites. I have found it to be very effective on bee stings, spider bites and puncture wounds.

You can learn more on my web site and all I ask in return for sharing is you do the same with my web site. I call it paying it forward.

Sincerely yours,
