Hello Dog Lovers! Are you up for learning something new today? I am so thrilled to have my friend Dawn Celapino with us, and she is the owner of Leash Your Fitness, the only company where your dog is your fitness partner for every outdoor activity! Dawn started studying natural living when her dog was diagnosed with a brain tumor and since then has been on a mission to help dogs and their parents live healthier lives through movement and living a chemical free life!
Can you first explain what exactly are essential oils?
Aromatherapy benefits humans both physically and psychologically. But the essential oil blends and aromatherapy products we use ourselves … might not produce the same reaction in our dogs, right?
I know a question that comes up quite a bit is are Essential Oils safe for dogs. How do you answer that?
Who do you recommend we speak with before using essential oil for our dogs? People like you and holistic vets only?
Are all essential oils extracted from plants?
What conditions can they treat?
How are they used?
Which are safe and which are not?
How can you tell if your dog does have a bad reaction to an oil?
Because our dogs have a sense of smell hundreds of times more sensitive than ours, do oils always need to be diluted?
How would our dog act if they don’t approve?
I’ve heard that to reduce the chances of sensitivity and organ toxicity, we should generally use an oil for no more than two weeks and then provide a rest period. Do you agree?
Which oils are your favorites for dogs?
If someone has never used oils with their dogs, which one or two do you recommend starting with?
Are there certain dogs that should not be exposed to essential oils?
How can we be sure that we are getting high quality oils?
When did you first learn about the benefits of using essential oils?
And you clean with essential oils, right?
Dawn, where can everyone find out more information about you?
