Essential oils work as an excellent natural home remedy for your dog and are often preferable to harsh chemicals. And though essential oils are natural, that does not mean they are always safe. Some essential oil can be toxic to your dog if consumed or inhaled.
Additionally, essential oils should rarely be used without diluting them first.
When first using essential oils with your dog, it is best to start with smaller amounts of oils to ensure your dog is not sensitive to the oil. When using essential oils, always be aware that there are possible side effects, such as:
- Skin irritation
- Allergic reaction
- Excessive panting
- Drooling or excessive salivation
- Frantically rolling to remove the oil
- Excessive sneezing
If you see any of these adverse effects, stop using the product immediately, and call your vet.
