Our Tip of the Day:
Even in our furbabies, it is possible for essential oils and certain scents to have certain effects. For example, it is often said that the scent of lavender can have a calming effect, and that eucalyptus can help alleviate asthma and other respiratory issues, even in dogs and cats. Diffusers with such scents can be used, to experiment with whether or not your pup or kitty does benefit from aromatherapy. Or, in some cases, essential oils can be used in forms such as sprays, perhaps to spritz a calming or other scent your furbaby's collar, on their blanket, or even, if done safely, lightly on their coat. This all being said, always be cautious and careful when using any oils, scents, or other similar products. Some animals have sensitivities, and so if you notice any sneezing or coughing after adding a diffuser, or any scratching or other dermatological issues upon using scented sprays, it might be best to steer clear of them. Of course, also keep an eye on whether your furbaby even simply dislikes a certain scent, such as if they squint, wrinkle their nose, or even avoid areas where scented items are found. We all love fresh and healthy scents, but always keep an eye on your furbabies after adding scented items to the home, as some fragrances simply might not agree with them.
