Essential Oils That Are TOXIC to Dogs | AVOID THESE!!

If you’re into essential oils (like me) and you have a dog then you definitely have heard that they can be unsafe for dogs. As a dog owner who also loves essential oils, I decided to look into it further. I discovered that not all essential oils are toxic to dogs (and some are actually really good!). In this video, I share with you the essential oils that I discovered are bad for dogs.

The symptoms of encountering any of these oils really depends on the quantity, and how it was absorbed, so it can be different for every dog and oil. This is not a FULL list of the oils, but it is a list of the most commonly seen. So, please, if you have any more that you’d like to add then feel free to add it in the comment section so that we can all learn!

*DISCLAIMER* I am not a vet. This list is purely based on my own research.

Thanks for watching!

    I’m glad lemongrass is okay for dogs. Lemongrass is my favorite! Thanks!
    I wonder if lemongrass essential oil is okay for cats?

    Thank you for making this video! It’s so important that we as custodians of our animals recognize that some things that we view as harmless are toxic for our pets. We owe it to them to be their guardians and be proactive in their care. Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!

    I’ve been using all these types of oils around my dog and my dog is doing just fine. I don’t put these oils on my dog but I use these oils regularly on my skin. I think the key is concentration. I have a feeling that these oils can irritate the airway of dogs because their airway is sensitive but I’m not sure. More research is needed.

    What is helpful for me is the exact reason why the oils are not recommended. I want to know the science behind it. Otherwise, it isn’t helpful.
