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.

We have a three year old rescue, who is a Doxie mix. I've read that this breed is often prone to seizures, so when she experienced her first, we chalked it up to something we had to endure.

Then we began to notice a trend, these seizures were happening within a week of her taking her monthly heart worm preventative. A little research showed that this can be a side effect.

When the next seizure started, for some reason they seem to occur late at night, we were ready. She was stiff and had labored breathing, and having some difficulty walking. These seizures normally last around thirty minutes.

I placed a couple of drops of the Valor oil blend on my palm and rubbed it in, and then rubbed her paws across my palms.

In less than five minutes, she was wagging her tail, crawling in my lap and looking at us as if, "What are we all doing today? It's late!!"

I love it!!
