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.

As a breeder of Himalayan and Persian cats, I am frequently asked questions about feline health care. These discussions come up among breeders, with people getting a new pet, and with existing pet owners with questions about the care of felines of all ages.

If you have a cat or dog, chances are at some point it will require some level of health care. Just like we get colds or allergies so can cats.

I have literally spent hours researching information to address the questions discussed among both feline breeders and owners. But let me clearly state that I am not a vet, nor I do not advocate abandoning normal vet care.

More times than not, good vet care can resolve any problems. But there are clearly times when another solution is perhaps needed or should be considered, if traditional methods have been tried and been unsuccessful.

In Spring 2010 a really nice woman who was getting a kitten from me was concerned about its flight to her, whether flying stresses the kittens. She told me she uses a holistic remedy for her dog and herself, for calming effects and she suggested I might try it for kittens being shipped.

Then in a single week I had the following chain of events that brought that recommendation back to mind.

A show breeder told me she never goes to a cat show without a holistic treatment in her bag to keep her cats calm.

A vet friend of mine had a cat with chronic diarrhea that didn't respond to traditional treatments but totally recovered with a "holistic concoction" within two days!

A friend with a sick, aging cat had taken it to specialists and nothing done helped. She heard about Young Living products from a friend of hers whose horse had totally recovered after traditional vet care had been unsuccessful. She tried them with her senior cat and it made a world of difference.

So much so that she now takes various remedies for herself.

It is through her that I became aware of these products, have spent time researching the products and the company and using them myself.

An issue of Cat Fancy magazine had an article about the benefits of certain holistic treatments.
