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.

I have a small dog, doxie/terrier mix about 11 years old. One day when I came in from work, I could see that he had vomited several times and was obviously feeling lousy. Since it was late I didn't call the vet and just tried to comfort him until morning. I don't know why, but it didn't even cross my mind to use the oils on him.

(Side point! By the way, the day before my neighbor had sprayed the outside of their home for spiders. I kept him in all day to protect him from the spray in case some had sprayed over to our yard, our homes are VERY close. I am NOT saying it was the poison, but I thought it was certainly interesting timing.)

He slept under the bed all night and wouldn't come out until early the next morning. When he finally emerged I could tell he was still feeling bad. His ears and head were down, his tail was tucked, his eyes were dull looking as he slowly made his way down the hall and outside for his morning "duty" barely able to make it down the stairs by himself. He wouldn't eat or drink even water.

While sitting there holding him and trying to comfort him until the Vet opened (all the time seeing dollar signs) I suddenly remembered READING ABOUT USING THE OILS ON PETS! Oh my goodness! I was a little afraid to put them on him to be truthful, but knowing the great results I have on myself with Di Tone, I decided to use ONLY ONE DROP on his tummy, rubbed the remaining residue on his paws and ears and continued to pet him for about 20 minutes or so. Just comforting him and talking to him. I really thought he was going to die. I'd never seen him so sick.

Suddenly he jumped down, spit up a little "spit of nothing", gave himself a good shake all over, stretched and proceded down the hall-way to his food and water dish, drank a nice long drink of fresh water and came back to my chair all sparkle eyed, tail wagging and happy. His old self again! I was so happy I cried!

My husband was sitting in his chair across the room from me this whole time. He said he wouldn't have believed it if he hadn't seen it for himself! Yup! "Snake oils" worked again!!!!

I hope this helps some one with their best friend!
