Besides the improved good health of your pets, there are additional advantages to be gained by using nature's essential oils in their care.
Essential oils aren't expensive and you can often use an oil you happen to have in the house already - thus saving on veterinary charges and commercial pet-care products.
And pets provide living proof that the effectiveness of the essential oils isn't due to supposed psychological factors.
Birds are extremely social, intelligent, and emotionally sensitive. Being that some birds have been proven to score as high on IQ tests as primates and small children, it's no wonder that they have a reputation for being demanding of their owners' attention.
It's important for all bird owners to understand that it is their responsibility to provide for their pets' mental and emotional needs, in addition to the physical.
Cats not only make good pets, they can also help, our health Studies by Dr. Erika Friedmann and others have shown that stroking a cat has a calming effect on the nervous system and lowers blood pressure.
People who have had a heart attack lengthen their chances of survival if they own a pet. And cats love the attention too.
But no matter how much we love cats, they can be aggravating, to say the least. When they ruin the furniture with their scratching.
