I recently discovered a terrific book that explains how you can use Aromatherapy oils on your dog. Imagine helping your best buddy with arthritis pain, anxiety, skin problems, lethargy, bad breath etc and all using purely natural plant extracts in the form of essential oils. It's brilliant and it's called, of course, Aromatherapy for Dogs . I tried some of the blends on my dog and the result was fantastic and he smells great too.
