Is Peppermint Bad For Dogs Or Cats?
“Is Peppermint Good For Dogs”? This is one of the most asked questions by my patients that are concerned about their dogs health. In this article I’m going to explain why Peppermint is good for dogs and how it is used to help treat certain health issues.
There are many different essential oils that can be used for your pet’s health. In fact many essential oils are even better for dogs than they are for humans. While most people don’t like to think about or use essential oils in their daily life, many pet owners do. Just like humans, our pets can enjoy the use of aromatherapy oils.
Many dog owners ask me the question “Is peppermint oil good for dogs?”. Here’s what I have to say: Peppermint oil is a very good anti-inflammatory oil, which can help relieve some of the more severe symptoms associated with flea bites. Most dogs can consume peppermint quite comfortably and won’t feel any ill effects. You can purchase Peppermint pet products that contain Peppermint oil and other essential oils that are formulated just for your pet. If you dog consumes a bit of peppermint oil, nothing harmful will occur, but if your dog ingests a large amount, it can cause some digestive irritation, and can even cause diarrhea or vomiting.
Another question I get asked quite often is “Is peppermint oil good for fleas”. The fact is, that peppermint oil is very good for treating fleas, because it contains an extremely effective natural ingredient called Oleuropein. This ingredient is what makes peppermint oil so effective at repelling fleas. It is safe for both dogs and cats, although pregnant and nursing mothers shouldn’t use peppermint in any way. It can also be used on dogs that suffer from mange due to the fact that it helps kill the underlying mites that cause the problem.
Fleas are a big problem for dogs and cats all over the world. Peppermint is a safe, gentle, all-natural ingredient that is powerful enough to help repel and kill adult fleas and their eggs, without causing any negative side effects. So, if you’re wondering whether your beloved dog needs a bath or not, the answer is yes! And, if you choose to give your dog a treat, the answer is yes, as well.
A great way to keep fleas away from your home is to use a natural, safe flea deterrent like peppermint, lavender essential oils and lavender pet products. These all natural, safe products will help keep your home and your pets safe from this insect bite. Peppermint is especially effective against fleas, as it has an anti-inflammatory effect, which makes it highly effective at eliminating them. And, lavender is a natural antiseptic and deodorizer, so it is very effective at killing the underlying parasites that cause this unpleasant skin condition. For these reasons, peppermint and lavender essential oils are safe for use on your dogs and cats.
