Essential Oils for Dogs Tip

Here's a tip on finding the right oil for your dog. Open the bottle and let your dog take a whiff without touching the bottle. In fact, you could use the cap.

Anyway, your dog will actually LIKE the smell of what he needs yet when it's an oil he doesn't need, he will quickly turn away or act as it is awful.

Once your dog chooses what works for him, he only need smell it each day to reap the benefits because those tiny particles go right up his nostrils.

Be careful when using essential oils on your dog's skin. Dogs are more sensitive than we are so those oils MUST be diluted.
