Calming Your Anxiety-Ridden Pets Naturally

Posted on Friday 20 August 2010

Animals can be very similar to humans sometimes, in respects to their emotions. Dogs can still suffer from stress and anxiety, just like humans do. They can have traumatizing experiences, just like humans.

Pets who are suffering from stress and anxiety can get aid. Essential oils are a wonderful tool to help your pets heal. Natural medicine can really help because they offer less negative side effects than the traditional medicine does.

The two main essential oils that we will discuss in this article are roman chamomile and lavender. Both have wonderful properties that aid animals that are suffering from depression, fear, and hyperactivity. They can help any animal that is dealing with stress or anxiety.

Be sure to talk to your vet before administering essential oils to your animals. Animals can be very sensitive, so the less you use the better. Instead of using the essential oil in its pure form, use a carrier oil to dilute it a little. Here are a few treatments you can use on various pets you may have.

Dogs can be calmed with 1 drop of lavender and roman chamomile. That mixture should then be mixed with 1 drop of carrier oil. This mixture can be combed through the dog’s fur, or applied to the eats or feet.

The same mixture can be used with most animals, including horses. Horses can have the oil applied to their muzzle or cornet bands. A lot of people still prefer applying it to their horse’s ears.

Be wary of essential oils and cats, however. Cats lack an enzyme that allows their liver to digest phenols. It is very important to not use oils that contain phenols, such as oregano and thyme.

Lavender and roman chamomile are completely safe to use on cats, however. Just be sure to dilute it more than the average pet. Use 10 drops of carrier oil instead of just the 1 drop.
