There are more flu outbreaks for dogs recently in the news. I would like to offer a natural support option based on the Pets and Essential Oils research I've been doing.
The Breathe Blend is a good idea to use to support our dogs if they are exposed or are showing symptoms. I'm continuing to research the option of including onGuard as a blend to support prevention of spreading the flu.
There are ways to avoid being exposed to the flu, but, if your pet is exposed and begins to show symptoms:
- Get to the Vet as soon as possible.
- Start the Essential Oils right away, and
- Continue both your Vet's treatment plan and the essential oils combination.
Remember: Puppies are more sensitive and essential oils should not be applied topically or internally until they are a bit older. Let's talk to determine your puppies breed, age, and I can recommend the age to incorporate essential oils for these uses.
Aromatic Use can begin early.
These are suggested for helping your pet build immunity to the flu, promoting natural healing, and subsequently reducing symptoms.
Breathe: Supports Healthy Breathing, Reduces Inflammation
OnGuard: Immune Support, Improves Oral Health, Spider Bites
Canine Flu Reports Avoid Exposure
There are ways to avoid being exposed to the flu. The primary way to avoid the canine flu is to avoid exposure to infected dogs and contaminated objects. This would include toys, play parks, dog supply stores, groomers, vets, and so on.
Avoid dog parks or other community areas where dogs come and go. A report from WCPO News Cincinatti, How to avoid the Canine Flu states “The virus can be spread by direct contact with respiratory secretions from infected dogs, by uninfected dogs coming into contact with contaminated objects, and by moving contaminated objects between infected and uninfected dogs.”
