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 fostered a shelter dog over the weekend. I took him to the vet Friday for regular vetting, and, after observing him, I asked if the dog might have kennel cough. I was told no.

Well, sure enough, he did have it. He started spitting up frequently on Saturday afternoon, so I read the Animal Desk Reference on kennel cough and decided to start with diffusing Thieves essential oil blend. Diffusing did give the dog relief for sleeping, but the next morning he would not eat and felt pretty crummy.

So I mixed Oregano essential oil with a carrier oil and used the petting method of application. I put the RC blend on the dog's paws and continued diffusing Thieves at night. I did this 4 times per day. In addition, I fed the dog coconut oil.

By Sunday afternoon the dog was eating, playing, and no longer spitting up. Monday I took him to the vet for a shot and continued the essential oil protocol. The dog barely exhibited a cough by Tuesday night!
