Essential oils for dogs can be another great alternative for dog owners looking for a more natural option.
Essential oils such as Neroli, Violet Leaf, Vetiver, Lavender, and Rose Hydrosol have been shown to help with a dog's separation anxiety. You can put these into your diffuser for your dog when you are gone. Make sure that your dog has a way to leave that room if the smell gets too strong.
Always try the diffuser with your dog when you are home so you can monitor for any reaction. Never allow your dog to ingest any of the essential oils or put them directly on your pet's fur or skin. When mixing essential oils, only put 2 to 4 drops in a diffuser.
If your dog is suffering from separation anxiety, there are many things that you can do to help. Sometimes it is best to see your veterinarian for advice, especially if your dog is very destructive when you are gone.
If your dog has mild signs, you can try natural remedies for their anxiety. These are very safe and have wonderful added benefits for your dog. By keeping your dog calm before you leave can help your dog stay relaxed while you are gone. Giving your dog a natural supplement will help calm their anxiety and help them live a healthy and happy life.
A final thing to keep in mind when using essential oils for your dog or even yourself is that pairing essential oils with carrier oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and so on, will really help to lessen the intensity of many essential oils.
