Oils For Dog Health & Wellness
I grew up with homemade wheat bread and hand-me-downs, but never essential oils. Essential oils came into my life at the same time as hydrotherapy as I was looking for natural, gentle options for my pups. DoTERRA came into my life at a time my pup Emmy was scared of the a person and could not be touched. Someone shared ADAPTIV, an essential oil blend, to use for her fearfulness and after 20 minutes from application, she was on her back snoring without a care in the world. I was a believer after that moment that these natural gifts from the earth work and I have used them ever since.
All essential oils are NOT created equal. What you think is natural could actually be made of synthetic chemicals. This is why I use only doTERRA essential oils in my house and on my pups because I know they are 100% organic and also ethically sourced. You simply can not improve on Mother Nature.
DoTerra not only cares where there oils come from, but also have third party testing and make the results public. This company works with organizations to support disaster relief; anti-human trafficking prevention, rescue, and rehabilitation; microloan programs; and feminine hygiene education to name a few.

Why Essential Oils?
DoTERRA essential oils can be used to help cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive, immune, integumentary, musculoskeletal, nervous system, respiratory system and urinary tract support in animals. I personally am using OnGuard and Terrazyme as part of a protocol to combat what was my dog Bam’s reoccurring UTI issues. He has not had a UTI since.
Happy Dog & Owner
"Since Vixen moved in, every evening between 6pm and 7:30pm she would be WILD. Full on Indy 500 though the house, biting us, digging in the furniture, barking, lunging and attacking us. Serious crazy puppy witching hour! When Stephanie Nilles told us about the essential oils, i was skeptical. I've heard people swear by them solving all kinds of problems but I still didn't think it would work. After a few more evenings of the wild puppy, I came to the conclusion that if the oils were safe for the dog(s), it couldn't hurt giving it a shot. My order arrived today and I'm happy to report that after our first try, puppy witching hour was spent snuggled together on the couch - much more enjoyable for the whole family!"
