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 was given a puppy in February of 2012 from a boy on my school bus route that I drive. This puppy was in very bad shape, he was 10 weeks old and only 10 pounds, he was also peeing blood (about 70% blood to urine). I brought him home to my family and we named him Simba.

As the days went on he was getting worse and had major eating issues, he was eating like he never had food before.

I brought him to my vet for his shots and she explained that he was very underweight, claws were white from lack of nutrition, and the peeing blood was not good.

We gave him food, plenty of water and lots of love. Things got worse at 14 weeks, he started throwing up non stop and would NOT eat or drink. We rushed him back to the vet and Simba was now 15 pounds, but not doing well at all.

The vet explained that we did the right thing by trying to save our dog but we had already laid out $600.00 in trying to help him and the next step was a specialist. My family could not afford this so she suggested we make him comfortable because he would not make it.

I was not going to let Simba go without fighting, so that night I sat with him and told my husband I was going to use Young Living Essential Oils on the dog. What did we have to lose? I first put a drop or two of the DiGize oil blend on his back paw to stop him from getting sick.

My family was surprised that it worked in about 20 minutes. From there I stayed up all night using Frankincense oil on both back paws about every 2 hours only diluting every other time.

The next morning my husband came down and gave Simba from his hand a few pieces of food and the dog ate it. HOORAY!! We then fed a little water and food by hand for the day very slowly watching him close.

By the following day he was up and eating on his own. I am excited to say that Simba is now 6 months old and 62 pounds. We just had him at the vet and she was in shock that he was so big. I explained to her all about Young Living Essential Oils.

We are very grateful for Gary Young and his company.
