Purity Of Essential Oils Is Essential For Our Pets

When I first started learning about essential oils and safe use with my pets I realised it was a minefield out there with so many different choices it seemed impossible trying to figure out what the best one was to pick.  I also realised there was a lack of regulation so it was hard to sort the wheat from the chaff but I was realistic enough to realise that ...

Are You Or Your Dog Suffering From Seasonal Threats?

So currently we are in the UK summer and maybe you are familiar with this time of year when your eyes start to water and itch like crazy, your nose drips, and the back of your throat is scratchy?

Calming Canines

Does your dog or cat have gut intolerances, skin sensitivity, ligament issues (studies show decreased injury in humans when on a digestive enzyme), need immune support?

Essential Oils For Sports Dogs

I have 4 canicross dogs and I have found so many benefits using essential oils to support their fitness.

Flea & Tick Prevention With Essential Oils

It is that time of year again and everyone wondering how to prevent fleas and ticks naturally.  Now if you are like me you have tried a whole range of things over the years but every year have had a failure.   However, that was until I started using pure essential oils with actual constituents in them that fleas do not like!   When you buy cheap oils they do...

CaniX UK Championships Series 2021/22 2nd Place Extreme Female

This weekend we had a brilliant one competing in the final race in the CaniX UK championships! For both dogs and myself essential oils played a massive role in getting us here!  This finale was a 2 day event on a very very hilly route and with some treacherous switchbacks needing all the technical skills I and my dogs have. Very scary downhills too, I was in...

Is Your Dog Anxious When Travelling?

Travelling with dogs can be difficult if your dog is anxious in a vehicle but this is something that can be addressed using essential oils. Firstly, you need to establish if your dog is anxious because they feel sick or are they anxious because the vehicle or the travel stresses them out.  This is important so we can get to the root of the problem.  Have the...

Pets & Their Emotions

Dogs & Poorly Tummies

Copaiba Essential Oil - Why I Use This Instead of CBD

On a lot of pages for pets particularly dogs you may see CBD oil mentioned time and time again, this oil is not the cure all it often seems to be as I will explain, but an alternative product Copaiba essential oil has advantages that CBD just does not have.  And Copaiba oil is in daily use in my house for myself and all my pets.  Read on to learn more about ...

New Dog, Lost Dog

Last week an overseas dog newly arrived in the UK was lost and found tragically killed on railway tracks. This poor dog was from Cyprus but this story is not unusual amongst dogs from overseas, too many sadly go missing within a very short period of time of their arrival in the UK to live with their new owners and next week there will be another tragic story...

Want To Use Essential Oils With Your Pets But Don't Know Where To Start?

Starting with essential oils or any natural well-being modality for your pets can be daunting as who do you speak to, what websites or books are good, what are bad and that is even before you look at the products. The internet is a wonderful thing but Dr Google can also be a font of some really poor knowledge and scary too which as a doctor I frequently enco...

Springers Are A Springing

I was pretty devastated when I found out my diminutive springer Evie aka the pocket rocket had bad arthritis - not that it stops her but being only 8 it suddenly hit me that she was getting old.  Like any springer she is so full of oomph and we have shared many a cani-cross adventure together fast, reliable and gentle on me when racing downhill (unlike her b...
