Pet Essential Oils - Confident K9
10 mL / 1/3 oz
Confident K9 was formulated for dogs who struggle with being alone. This blend helps to promote relaxation, support confidence, and soothe worry. For behavioral issues ranging from excessive barking or shaking to chewing on belongings or clawing at your front door, Confident K9 can help.
While Confident K9 was created specifically with dogs in mind, it is also safe and effective for horses who may struggle with similar issues.
Diffuse using 1-2 drops per 100 mL of water for 5-10 minutes every few hours. Passive diffusion is also a great option. Try adding 1-2 drops to a cotton ball and tucking that cotton ball into your dog’s bed.
For topical application, dilute to 0.25-2% depending on your animal's species and weight. Apply the diluted blend to the upper inner foreleg, chest, or back of the neck. For best results, apply the blend 5-10 minutes before your animal is exposed to the stressful situation to allow the effects to begin.
When using essential oils with dogs and horses it is important to create a positive association with the oil. You can do this by applying the oil to yourself for the first few days of usage. This will allow your animal to begin to associate the blend with his/her person. When you are ready to apply the blend to your animal or begin active diffusion you can reinforce the positive experience by doing something they love, like giving them their favorite treat or using a massage application before bedtime.
This blend is intended for use with dogs and horses only. Do not diffuse around or use this blend topically on cats, birds, reptiles, rodents, etc.
