Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I own an older cat who has lived all of her life with a herpes virus (contracted from her mother). She has frequent bouts of sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, bad teeth. The vets I work with prescribe medications to help with the symptoms, but there is no cure.

Recently, two of my younger cats began exhibiting the same respiratory problems. We went to the veterinarian and tried a different medication for the younger cats. This did not help at all, but instead, made them begin to vomit.

I stopped the new medicine and tried 1 drop of the Peppermint oil that I use for myself when I have a sinus infection or sore throat (I personally use 1 or 2 drops to my skin). I applied 1 drop to the bridge of my cats' noses and throats, purposely in a place where they couldn't lick it off, and then gently rubbed it into their fur. Thereafter the sneezing and wheezing and coughing stopped.

I called my vets, but none of them knew anything about essential oil therapy for cats and told me to contact someone who works with essential oils. Because Peppermint is in the same plant family as Catnip and Catmint (which my cats love), I rationalized that in small amounts, it might work and be safe. Sure enough it worked for my cats. I look forward to reading on this website how others use essential oils with their pets.
