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 work as an emergency veterinarian. As you could imagine, many of the patients we see require hospitalization to treat their illnesses or toxicities, etc, and we also have many patients who experience stress and anxiety during hospitalization.

During a recent overnight, we had two dogs that were vocalizing, pawing at the cage, very anxious. One of these two dogs had vocalized for over 24 hours. Obviously, this is stressful for other animals and people to hear. I put a partial drop of Peace & Calming on the E collar or neck collar of each dog, and a partial drop of Lavender as well.

Within 10 to 15 minutes, both dogs were no longer vocalizing but were lying quietly. One dog required a treatment about 45 minutes later, which meant the e collar came off temporarily. When it was time to put the collar back on, rather than fight it as he had initially done, he stuck his head into the collar readily, then laid down quietly in the cage and rested until I finished my shift.

This response convinced the two technicians of the value of the oils, and how quickly they can work. And, they made me a stronger believer. Dogs will not have thoughts interfering with the successful response, and to have it work so quickly and definitively, what a blessing!
