Here at Dr. May’s Veterinary House Calls, we are proud to offer Essential Oil Therapy for our patients.
As more people start enjoying their essential oils and are seeing results, they start to wonder if it can also help their animals.
It is very important to work with a veterinarian when introducing your pets to essential oils. Dosages can be a bit tricky with pets, especially cats. Some need more and some less, due to their size. Some oils can’t be used with pets at all so be sure to discuss your plans to try essential oils with us so that we can determine the best course of action.
When introducing essential oils to your pets, you should start by wearing the oils around them or diffusing the air before applying it directly to them. It often works better if you rub the oils into your hand or use a spray bottle to apply it. Paws work well for cats and dogs, while hoofed animals require oils on their spine or flanks. Some oils can be ingested by animals.
If you have any questions about essential oil therapy and how it can help your pet, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (310) 614-3530.
