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 cat Ivan has struvite crystals which irritate his bladder, causing frequent and painful urination. He does not like to be given anything orally or have anything put on him, which makes treatment difficult, to say the least!

Before I knew about Young Living essential oils I took him to the vet where he was given a long-acting antibiotic injection. I was given instructions for a special urinary diet to dissolve the crystals too. In the meantime, I learned about the oils. He was okay for a couple weeks, but the symptoms returned. So back to the vet he went for another injection.

I started adding Lemon oil to dissolve the crystals and Copaiba for the inflammation to his food. He would not always eat the food because of the essential oils. I also tried to rub the oils on his fur, but he did not like that either!

I found out about "litteroma" from the "Oily Vet" Dr. Melissa Shelton. That has been a wonderfully effective way to apply the oils to all my cats, and Ivan has been doing very well. I do not feed him the special diet either. You can learn more about litteroma and many other pet topics by visiting I will be happy to share how I use litteroma. Just contact me.
