Essential Oils and PetsGuide for use of essential oils and your pets

Animals are usually more sensitive to essential oils than humans.

  • To start using essential oils on your pets you should use in moderation and dilute the essential oils heavily.
  • All animals will react differently to the essential oil so you should observe closely how that animal is responding
  • to the essential oil. Use your judgement in the method you are using.
  • Be very careful to not get the essential oil in the animal’s eyes.
  • Avoid using high phenol oils with all animals and do not use at all on cats.
  • Use extra special caution in using essential oils on cats.

The animal's size affects the amount of oil you should use.

  • The smaller animals like cats and small dogs, use 3–5 drops and be sure to dilute 80–90 percent prior to application (for example, for every 1 drop of oil, use 4–5 drops of a diluting agent, such as V-6 vegetable oil complex, coconut oil, jojoba or grapeseed oil.
  • For the larger animals, like large dogs, start with 3–5 drops. Please be sure to dilute to the rate of 1 drop to 4-5 drops of a dilution agent, such as V-6 vegetable oil complex, coconut oil, jojoba or grapeseed oil.
  • For very large animals, like horses and cattle, start with 10 drops. Your dilution rate is still going to be 4-5 drops of a dilution agent, such as V-6 vegetable oil complex, coconut oil, jojoba or grapeseed oil. On the very large animals, with certain oils, there is no dilution necessary but a skin test should be done first.

Application of oils to animals

  • Start by wearing oils around your animals, diffuse in their space, or apply to your hands and let the animal smell them.
  • Try applying an oil to yourself and staying near the animal for several minutes so it can get used to the aroma, to help ease uneasiness and being jittery around the new smell of essential oils.
  • For hoofed animals a great place to apply essential oils is on the spine or flank of the animals.
  • For cats and dogs, apply the essential oil to the paws.
  • Try rubbing oils onto your own hands and then stroking the animal’s fur.
  • For large areas or areas that are hard to reach you can use your diluted blend in a spray bottle. When using a spray bottle you can dilute your oils with water instead of a carrier oil.

$10
USD
Helps pay for feed and hay for a child's pony. Many times paying for pony care can be cost prohibitive and our national office tries to help. Providing money for feed and hay can make a difference.
$25
USD
Helps cover some of the yearly health costs for maintaining a child's pony. Veterinarian fees can be costly, especially given the costs a family faces for the care of a differently able child.
$50
USD
Pays part of transport costs for pony travel. Getting our ponies to the children that need them can be very costly. Transport is one of our biggest challenges
$100
USD
Provides funds for breeding costs for broodmare and foal care. Without volunteer breeders we have no future program. Breeders are in need of financial support at times especially for foaling.
$150
USD
Will cover the costs for a new family to purchase halters, leadlines, water buckets, grooming equipment, and saddles or driving equipment.
$200
USD
Pay the cost of gelding one of our young colts so that he can begin his life as a child's pony friend. All colts not in our breeding program are gelded at around 6 months of age.
$500
USD
Will help care for one of our retired ponies for one year. Retired ponies have given a life of service often need extra care and support. Retired ponies are treated with great care and appreciation.
$2,000
USD
Will be held in savings for emergency care for a pony whose family needs help. Economic conditions or personal situations require emergency financial support so a child can keep his or her ponies.
