Our pet yellow lab was 10 yrs. old when she showed signs of blood in her urine; she is an outside dog and I noticed pinkish, red spots in the snow everywhere she would urinate.
I pulled out the Essential Oils Desk Reference and it said that it could be an UTI (urinary tract infection). I decided to try the recommendation and started putting two drops of Oregano with one drop of vegetable oil in the palm of my hand and applied to the bottom of her front paws and then repeat with the back paws. She is a large dog weighing 70lbs. so I could have probably used it "neat" but oregano is a hot oil and paws can be sensitive. She did not like it at first. I did this 3x's the first day. The next day the bleeding had stopped! I continued for four more days just to make sure. It has never happened since and she is now 12yrs.old!!!
About 6months later I got an UTI for the second time in my life and I immediately began using 5-6 drops of oregano in a vegetable capsule 3x's daily. After the first day I had no pain, just alittle pressure. By the second day I had no symptoms at all but kept taking the oregano for 3 more days just to make sure it was gone. That was almost two years ago and I have not had it since!
