Using Essential Oils On Your Pets

Pet care and essential oils is a widely discussed topic with frequent questions. It is understood that animals are more sensitive to essential oils than humans. This means you likely would need much less essential oil when using on your house pets. It is noted that essential oils can be used on all animals, but for the sake of simplicity this article will focus on cats and dogs.

Some Things You May Not Know

Essential oil application is thought to be enhanced when applying to a pet’s hair follicles, AKA: fur. The fur may act as a wick, pulling in the essential oil. This can be utilized as a usual place to apply oils. While the bottoms of the feet are often used in humans, it is not recommended to apply oils to your pet’s feet, especially undiluted. The belief behind not using their paw pads, is that toxins are released this way and with their high exposure to chemicals outside and inside the home, this could pose a problem for the animals with detoxification.

Use Common Sense When Applying & Diffusing Oils

Using common sense goes a long way with essential oil usage, in my opinion. I would not use the same amount of oil on a 15 pound dog as I would on a 175 pound man. Be cautious, especially when starting out with essential oils on and around your pets. In most cases oils should be diluted for all of your pets prior to application.

Sense of Smell

Animals have a very powerful olfactory system (sense of smell). They can smell things across the room that we can’t smell under our noses. Remember Pavlov’s dog? In Pavlov’s  theory on classical conditioning , when he rang the bell and fed his dogs after a couple times they would salivate to the sound of hearing a bell without any food. With our pets at home, they may have had an essential oil experience which is now engrained in their memory as an aversion. Avoiding essential oils around them is not necessarily needed, but taking caution and allowing them an exit strategy is wise.

Diffusing with a water based diffuser is preferred initially when beginning to see how they tolerate, you can then increase the drops and length of diffusion as desired.

 

Oil Safety with Animals

For the same reason I will ONLY use Young Living essential oils on my most precious commodities, my children is the same reason I would only use Young Living on my furry & feathered friends. Young Living has Veterinary Advisory Council in place. Just another reason you would want to use only Young Living essential oils on your pets.  You can learn more about why you should choose Young Living and also why Young Living oils are therapeutic grade and our Seed to Seal promise of purity.

Consulting with a holistic veterinarian and having blood and urine tests run is a great idea prior to using essential oils.

Did you know that Young Living’s Raindrop Technique can be used with an animal protocol? The Raindrop technique utilizes very potent essential oils and special dilution is necessary.
