February 6, 2009, Newsletter Issue #137: Alternative Medicine For Pets.

Tip of the Week

There are a lot of opinions about using alternative medicine for pets just as there is about using alternative medicine for people. Essential oils are one popular alternative method of healing for pets. When using essential oils on pets, you need to understand that an animalís system is similar to that of a young, sensitive child. Too much of a good thing can be bad. It is also important to dilute the oils just as you would if you were using them on a person. Of course, essential oils are not the only option for treating your pet. Energy work and hands-on healing are two very popular choices for alternative medicine for pets. Before choosing to treat your pet with an alternative method, you should find a veterinarian in your area that practices alternative medicine for pets so you can be sure you are treating the right ailment. Animals are harder to diagnosis than humans since they donít speak. Even if you canít find a veterinarian that believes in the use of alternative medicine for pets it is still a good idea to get the condition diagnosed first before you begin treatment. A great place to look for alternative medicine for pets is your local health food store. There may be an employee there who is familiar with alternative medicine for pets who can help you make the right treatment choice. As with humans, you would not want to give your pet something that could interfere with another problem they have.
