Essentials For Dogs: The new wave of dog care that can conquer anxiety, arthritis, epilepsy and much more. It’s the silver bullet for dog pain and discomfort.
Using essential oils for pets is a hot topic. It comes up in my daily life as an involved pet parent. In this article, I am going to cover the basics of essential oils, and how you can use them to help your dog. If essential oils aren’t your thing, keep reading. Everything I am going to teach you may just change your mind.
So what is exactly so special about these Essential Oils?
At first, I used to think the same thing! I was familiar with essential oils for use on myself, but hadn’t heard of using them with my pups. So, I’m going to break this down in the simplest of terms.
First, let’s consider dogs. We classify all domestic dogs to be one species, Canis Lupus. Within this classification we have different breeds. For example, a Rottweiler is a different breed than a Chihuahua. While they are both in the same species, they have very different properties such as size and demeanor.
Let’s get back to essential oils. Zingiber officinale is the term for a peculiar plant, Ginger. It’s a general classification, but as I’m sure you already know, not all plants are grown equally. Some manufacturers use low grade, questionable manufacturing processes when producing essentials, and some even use low quality ingredients to start with. Not all Ginger Essential Oils are created equally.
Due to the many factors in essential oil manufacturing, I was skeptical at which brand to pick. I wanted to try Ginger Essential Oils on my own pet, to see if the pain-fighting rumors surrounding the plant were true. I knew that only the highest quality oils would be best for my canine companion. That’s why it’s so important that companies like K9 Life Improvement are around to guide dog owners to the right selections.
Wait, You Can Stop Discomfort With A Plant?
To answer this question, it’s important to consider what makes Ginger medicinal. There are a few main components to consider.
For centuries (yes, centuries!) indigenous peoples from India, Jamaica, China, Korea, and even Vietnam have been using the plant not only for cuisine, but as a natural herbal remedy for nausea and pain. This is due to the phenolic compounds found in the plant, which have been proven to relieve gastrointestinal irritation.
Even in modern studies, it’s been discovered that volunteers at the University of Georgia had muscle pain reduced by 25% through only using Ginger. Now that’s impressive, even some of the smartest minds in our country recognize the extremely powerful properties that nature can provide us. With Ginger’s powerful inflammation fighting properties refined and made into a potent blend of essential oils, the possibility of relief is real.
So, When Should I Use Essential Oils For My Dog?
Here are some common uses of essential oils as a natural remedy:
Pain: As we’ve already discussed, Ginger Essential Oils are the go-to blend if your dog is currently suffering from physical discomfort. With its powerful anti-inflammatory agents, you can solve your pups discomfort naturally and effectively.
Anxiety: Canine anxiety is a sad reality that many dog parents are forced to deal with. And at times, it can feel like a mystery as how to best solve your pets problems. Lavender Essential Oils are perfect for calming a tense dog. It’s no secret that Lavender helps calms us humans, but it may surprise you to discover that canines can also benefit from the soothing effects that Lavender provides.
Pests: It may be a surprise to you that you have more than likely already used essential oils on your pet before! Cedarwood Oil is a common ingredient in many popular anti-flea collars, and for good reason. The oil is a strong deterrent to fleas and ticks, and 100% natural. Even if your canine doesn’t have any pests bothering them right now, you can preemptively stop the fleas from ever making a home on your pet with Cedarwood Oil.
Essential Oils like Rosemary Oils are even showing signs of potentially improving heart health in dogs. Right now, the possibilities are endless.
Okay, so where can I get pet approved Essential Oils?
This was my main motivation behind co-founding the amazing company, K9 Life Improvement.
What’s wonderful about the products at K9 Life Improvement is that they offer a wide variety of essential oils. You can add the oils directly under the dogs collar, after first diluting the oil due to the potency of our blends.
It’s important to know the quality and strength of the products that you order. Some of the commercial products that I see are just not potent enough to see great results. Yet, with K9 Life Improvement, I’ve seen dogs improve in as little as four weeks. Be patient.
