Aromatherapy for Dogs

Beagle_puppy_sniffing_flowerEssential oils are well known for their healthy benefits and their benefits for our pets should not be overlooked. Due to their high vibrational frequencies they are known to balance and harmonize the bodies organs and emotions hence they bring balance and wellness, aid in detoxing, oxygenate the blood and enhance the immune system by creating an environment conducive for total wellness.

The nature of my work as a animal naturopath (natural animal health coach) affords me the opportunity to educate companion animal owners and care givers on to how to bring back balance and wholeness in our animals.

The successful, holistic, naturopathic approach relies on more than simply striving to keep our pets free of symptoms of illness. Rather, the focus is on total wellness, a whole health lifestyle for your pets – maintaining a balance between each interdependent function of the body systems while igniting the body’s own internal healing force through the application of the laws of health mandated in nature.

It is critical to start with the foundation: feeding species appropriate nutrition. Otherwise, no amount or type of natural remedy will have a lasting impact on total, long-term wellness.

I incorporate a few simple suggestions on using essential oils in my Holistic Wellness for Dogs & Cats Class in order to further assist the animal’s body to detox, balance and thrive. The essential oils work synergistically with the body, raising the electrical frequencies to create within the body an environment conducive for total wellness.

I only use and offer Young Living Essential Oils – their Seed-to-Seal process is one of the many reasons for doing so.

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oil are the subtle, aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs, and tress, through distillation. According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians were using essential oils thousands of years before Christ to heal the sick.

They are the oldest form of remedies and cosmetics known to man and were considered more valuable than gold. There are 188 references to oils in the Bible.

Essential oils are well known for their healthy benefits and their benefits for our pets should not be overlooked. Due to their high vibrational frequencies they are known to balance and harmonize the organ systems: supporting emotional needs, aiding in detoxing, oxygenating the blood, and enhancing the immune system.


All Essential Oils Are NOT Created Equal

It’s important to note that not all essential oils are created equal, especially when using them with animals. Essential oils have gotten a bad rap in years past due to inferior quality oils used and in many cases, caused harm to companion animals. Most of the essential oils that you find in the health food stores are filled with synthetic ingredients afford the producer a greater yield making them more profitable. Essential oils are only regulated by the cosmetic industry which then allows for extreme liberty in labeling: allowing a label to state “100% organic” as long as just one ingredient in the process is organic.

When selecting an essential oil for your animal companion be sure to look for an essential oil with a food label. I personally only use and trust Young Living Essential Oils.

I’ve put together a 17 minute video on what it means to BE WELL – it is a story, a parable:

Here is what veterinarian, Dr. Hugh Bassham, author of Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It, had to say about this video: “Kim, Outstanding! Unique! Interesting! Informative! Impressive! But coming from you it is not surprising! My congratulations on an excellent and thoughtful presentation which should make everyone who sees it think!”

Here is my WHY for sharing the oils:


The purpose and general goal of the animal naturopathic consultation offered by Dr. Kim Bloomer is to educate the client about their animals body systems in relation to function and ability pertaining to maintenance of overall homeostasis (balance) through the removal of various, and typically specific, obstacles to their health, this thereby encouraging their body’s own natural healing processes. Dr. Bloomer does not function as a traditional allopathic veterinarian by diagnosing disease, treating disease, or performing invasive procedures, nor do her services replace that of a traditional licensed allopathic veterinarian.

The information offered by Dr.Kim Bloomer is intended to provide general guidance. Nothing on the website or during a regular consultation constitutes traditional allopathic veterinary advice. Always consult with a licensed veterinarian before undertaking any course of treatment for your animal or changing treatments or medications your own veterinarian has already prescribed. This consultation will hopefully suggest additional options to think about, and other areas to explore, based on your dog or cat’s condition.
