Hey, don’t leave us out…
Our 4-legged friends are family members too! They benefit from essential oils and natural plant-based products as well.
During our life together my husband and I have always had miniature schnauzers; both from rescues and breeders. At the present time we have two female miniature schnauzers. Cookie is our oldest and we brought her into our home in 2010 from a rescue. She had a rough start in life when she was left at a vet in Oklahoma as a newborn pup. After she choose our family for her fur-ever home and we brought her into our home and very quickly found out she had Parvo. If you are a dog lover you know how devastatingly terminal this can be to a puppy. At the time we found out Cookie had only been with us for a few short days, but our two kids had already bonded with her…oh who am I kidding so did I. She spent 10 days at the vets on IV fluids and pulled through! She is one tough Cookie!
Ever since she has had a very Sensitive stomach. The slightest change in her diet and she would heeve-ho. Even maintaining her strict diet she sometimes has tummy trouble. Digize or Paragize essential oil has helped her during the times she has needed a little extra support. We rub this on her tummy and down her back as we pet and love on her.
Penny on the other hand still parties like a puppy even though she is a whopping 2 years old. This little girl has so much energy and lots of snuggles. We rub a little lavender on the tips of her ears daily. This provides a little bit of Sanity for the rest of us while it helps calm her down.
*FYI…I’ve tried Peace & Calming on her as it works for Cookie but this one makes Penny cra-cra! Dogs are like people in the fact that each oil works differently with everyone.
