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.

My little Shih Tzu suffers from extreme thunderstorm anxiety, or storm phobia, as it's called.

Before I got involved in Young Living Essential Oils our method of treatment was: put on his tightest fitting shirt, give him one 3mg melatonin (Vet approved), and try our best to soothe and comfort him - doing whatever we could to stop his uncontrollable shaking and sheer terror.

Now, the moment we are aware that a storm is on the way (or a pressure front), I put on his snug fitting shirt and treat him with two Young Living Essential Oils (approved for pet use). Using Peace & Calming and Valor. First I let him sniff each one, then I rub a drop of each on to the pads of his front paws.

He may still be apprehensive, but his attacks are definitely diminishing over time.

This combination can also be used on a fabric collar or bedding if you prefer. You can mix with water in a (glass) spray bottle and mist their bedding just as you would your own. Just don't overpower them . . . remember, Young Living oils are potent!

I also let both of my Shih Tzu's sniff these oils before going to the Vet or groomer to calm them.
