Essential Oils For Pets

Healthy Pets : Happy Owners

HEALTHY PETS MAKE HAPPY OWNERS!
MOST PEOPLE THINK OF THEIR PETS AS A PART OF THEIR “FAMILY”. WE ALL USE YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS ON OUR FAMILIES, SO OUR PETS DESERVE NO LESS!

LIKE OUR FAMILY, OUR PETS CAN ALSO SUFFER FROM OCCASIONAL DISCOMFORTS, AS WELL AS NEEDING HELP IN PROMOTING THEIR HEALTH.

ONE SOLUTION IS THE USE OF ESSENTIAL OILS. HUMANS HAVE USED ESSENTIAL OILS FOR CENTURIES FOR VARIOUS HEALTH APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, WITH THE ADVENT OF “MODERN MEDICINE’, ESSENTIAL OILS LEFT THE MINDS OF MANY AMERICANS. FORTUNATELY, THE USE OF ESSENTIAL OILS HAS FOUND ITS WAY BACK INTO OUR HOMES AND OUR HEARTS!

ANIMALS OFTEN EAT PLANTS IN THEIR EVERYDAY ROUTINE. OFTEN YOU WILL FIND A CAT OR DOG EATING A PLANT IN ORDER TO SETTLE THEIR STOMACH, OR TO PROMOTE VOMITING. ANIMALS LOVE PLANTS. FRESH PLANTS HAVE THE POWER OF ESSENTIAL OILS, THE “LIFEBLOOD” OF THE PLANT. IT SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE THAT OUR PETS CAN BENEFIT FROM ESSENTIAL OILS JUST AS WE DO, IF USED PROPERLY.

 PROMOTING WELNESS & PROVIDING IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT


THE FAMILY PET CAN USE THE ESSENTIAL OILS MUCH IN THE SAME WAY AS YOU DO. ONE OF THE FIRST WAYS THE OILS BENEFIT THE PET IS BUILDING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. AS YOU DIFFUSE YOUR OILS, IN YOUR HOME, YOUR PET WILL ALSO BEGIN TO REAP THE BENEFITS, JUST AS YOU ARE BENEFITTING.

WITH THE INCREASING NUMBERS OF TOY BREEDS AND THE GROWING “DESIGNER DOGS”, UNFORTUNATELY, THEIR HEALTH IS NOT ALWAYS PROTECTED. THEY LACK A STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM AND BY SUPPLEMENTING YOUR PET WITH YOUNG LIVING SUPPLEMENTS, YOU CAN ENSURE THEY ARE GETTING A HEALTHY BOOST.

ALTHOUGH THE SUPPLEMENTS ARE MADE FOR HUMANS, SOME SIMPLE MODIFICATIONS CAN BE MADE, MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR YOUR PET TO RECEIVE THE SAME SUPPORT YOU DO.

ESSENTIAL OILS AND YOUR PET’S BEHAVIOR

BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS ARE THE LEADING CAUSE OF SURRENDERING PETS TO ANIMAL SHELTERS. TOO MANY PETS MEET THEIR END IN A LONELY CAGE, DUE TO A BEHAVIOR THAT IS INTOLERABLE. COMMON SOURCES OF A PET’S BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
• PREVIOUS TRAUMA OR RESCUE ANIMALS
• FEAR OF ENVIRONMENT (THUNDER, LIGHTENING, FIREWORKS, LOUD NOISES, ETC.)
• DOMINANCE ISSUES/SUBMISSIVE ISSUES
• SEPERATION ANXIETY
• PEOPLE OR OTHER PET AGGRESSION
• BRAIN ABNORMALITIES
• COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION, USUALLY WITH OLD AGE

DISCOVERING THE SOURCE OF THE BEHAVIOR PROBLEM SHOULD BE DONE, INSTEAD OF BLAMING YOUR PET. THE POSSIBILITY OF A MEDICAL PROBLEM SHOULD BE RULED OUT AND THOROUGHLY EXPLORED.  A MEDICAL WORK-UP CAN PROVIDE VALUABLE INFORMATION AND MAY LEAD TO ELIMINATING THE UNDESIRED BEHAVIOR. ONCE YOU HAVE DETERMINED THAT NO MEDICAL PROBLEM EXISTS, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO UTILIZE ESSENTIAL OILS TO HELP DETER THE UNWANTED BEHAVIOR.

ESSENTIAL OILS CAN BE USEFUL FOR BOTH THE OWNER AND THE PET IN THIS SITUATION. DIFFUSING OILS THAT PROMOTE A PEACEFUL ENVIRONMENT CAN HELP CALM BOTH PET AND OWNER. BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION FOR THE PET ONLY WORKS IF THE OWNERS ARE IN THE RIGHT MIND SET. THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGINS!

PETS CAN GREATLY BENEFIT FROM CALMING OILS. THESE OILS ALLOW THE PET TO CONCENTRATE ON THE NEW BEHAVIOR CHANGE THAT IS DESIRED. IT ALLEVIATES THE STRESS AND DIRECTS THE MIND OF THE PET TOWARD A TASK AT HAND. AS ALWAYS, THE CALMING OILS HELP THE OWNER AS WELL. FOR ANY BEHAVIOR CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE, THE ENVIRONMENT HAS TO BE CALM.

USING OILS FOR BEHAVIOR CHANGES HAS HAD ENCOURAGING RESULTS. HOWEVER, THE OILS MUST BE IN USED IN CONJUCTION WITH BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION FOR THERE TO BE A LASTING EFFECT ON THE PET. THEY ARE NOT A “QUICK FIX” AND WILL FAIL IF THE ISSUES ARE NOT DEALT WITH. THIS CAN TAKE TIME AND CAN BE FRUSTRATING. CONSISTENCY IS PARAMOUNT!

FOR BEHAVIOR PURPOSES, OILS ARE BEST APPLIED TOPICALLY TO THE COLLAR, OR DIFFUSED. DIFFUSING THEM IN THE PET’S HOME, BEFORE THEY ENTER, ALLOWS THEM TO ASSOCIATE THE DESIRED BEHAVIOR WITH THE SCENT, CREATING A MEMORY, THEREBY INCREASING THE CHANCE OF LEARNING A NEW BEHAVIOR.
