Sounds kind of goofy right?
Aromatherapy is a well-known treatment for various human conditions. Its traditionally known to help people with mind and body ailments, but its gaining a reputation for its effectiveness on pets as well.
Pets, like humans, suffer from many medical conditions too. Arthritis is huge in the canine world. It can affect a small dog like a terrier just like it can affect a large breed. This debilitating disease isn’t just for humans.
No one likes to see their pet suffer. It can be heartbreaking because to most pet owners, their four-legged friend is a part of the family. Aromatherapy can be the non-intrusive, affordable remedy you need to help your pet feel better.
While we may not be able to know the exact mindset of our pets, we do know that pets sometimes exhibit anxious feelings when theyre feeling scared, intimidated, or unsure of their surroundings Aromatherapy books can help you learn what to do for your pet and even music geared towards your nervous canine or feline can help sooth their souls.
Hyper-activeness is another condition some pets may experience. Certain scents used to deliver a calming effect during aromatherapy can help calm your pet down to a certain degree and will work wonders when paired with positive training.
Some pets can benefit from adding aromatherapy to the medical treatments theyre receiving from their veterinarians. It sometimes helps the medical treatments work faster and may calm the animal down enough to have these treatments performed on them without extreme anxiety and fear.
Animals can be sensitive to some aromas and the oils should be diluted before using this therapy on them. Consult your vet on which oils can be used and how much they should be diluted.
Its also important to know that oils are the best form for use in pet aromatherapy. Candles are nice but they can get knocked over and you wouldn’t want to start a fire.
Dogs love aromatherapy and you can see it for yourself:
