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 6 year old Rottweiler. The other day late in the day he could not walk without pain. He was hunched over and would not lay on either side or his back which he loves to do.

Whenever he would try to stand up and walk you could see that he was having such a hard time. He stayed in the house over 7 hours without going outside for any reason. The things that normally would get his attention he would get up for, check it out and be "frisky" he just would not do.

I decided that I would try the Valor oil blend on his back. So I put a few drops of Valor on three fingers and would start at his tail and rub my fingers up his spine to his head.

I would keep adding a couple of drops on my fingers and start a little higher each time on his spine to make sure the oils were on the full length of his spine. I was hoping that it would work it's way through his fur. I also put a small amount left on my finger on each paw.

I did this three times during the day. By evening, he was starting to get up to get water, he went outside to go to the bathroom, then would come back in and lay down, he was moving a lot more, but still cautious.

The next morning when I woke up he was completely normal. We did not have to take him to the vet or chiropractor like we thought we would have to. He was back to his old self. Playing, running through the doggy door to check things out. I was so happy he was better.

I can only say that the oils really helped him to get back to normal. I am so grateful that it worked for him, and he wasn't in the pain he was the day before. Now if I could only do that for my own back... I'd be very happy. Thanks to the oils and prayer I believe that he benefited greatly from both.

Thank you Young Living Oils. What would we do without you?
