Cats metabolize Essential Oils differently

2017-04-14T12:38:41+00:00

Cats metabolize Essential Oils differentlyWhen we are asked, “Are Essential Oils Safe for Cats?” We answer “Please use a Hydrosol because Cats metabolize Essential Oils differently.”

Since we started our ‘Essential Oils for Dogs' series we have been asked, by our Wisteria Goldens Families who also have cats, about this. We started investigating.

After doing some digging we discovered the online resources are conflicting, but one thing is consistent, Cats metabolize Essential Oils differently than dogs. When our research focused on that fact we discovered the potential risks. When essential oils are used with cats, without proper guidance, they can be harmful.

Are Essential Oils Safe for Cats?

Conclusion: Essential Oils can be harmful more often than not. Hydrosols (aromatic waters) are preferable to Essential Oils and safer for cats. Hydrosols are gentler and […]

Essential Oil Precautions for Dog Owners

Essential Oil Precautions for Dog Owners

If you have been doing research to find out what Essential Oils are safe and effective for dogs this is a great article to set your mind at ease. The controversy about Essential Oil Precautions isn’t as confusing as it may seem at first glance. The primary reason we see, contributing to the mixed information, is generally because people are talking about different grades of essential oils. My favorite brand is pure, organic, and safe when used as directed.

Dosing is another factor contributing to the controversy. Remember dogs are smaller than us. It is important to keep dose comparative to dog size and what works. To keep dosing consistent use carrier oils.
