We all want the very best for our furry family members. Many prescription products may mask your pet’s symptoms rather than alleviate them, potentially causing more harm. This is one of the reasons why more and more pet owners are realising the natural benefits of emu oil to treat a range of pet problems.
Emu oil is a highly penetrating remedial oil that has powerful healing properties, and the great thing is it’s non-toxic. You don’t need to worry if your pet ingests emu oil (in fact, it’s good for them!)
Here are 5 common usages of emu oil for pets:
1. Skin Irritations and Bites
Emu oil can be used to treat a range of skin issues. From sunburn on noses, hot spots, cracked paws and flea bites, these can cause your pet discomfort and itchiness. Topical and internal application of emu oil can produce quick healing results. Simply apply pure emu oil directly onto their skin or add a few drops to their meal.
2. Dull and Dry Hair Coats
If your pet’s hair coat looks dull or brittle, it could be because they are deficient in Omega 6. Pets often respond to supplementation with essential fatty acids, something that pure emu oil is highly rich in. Restore the softness and shine in your pet’s coat with a few drops – it’s commonly used for show dogs to promote resilient skin and glossy coats.
3. Chronic Inflammation
Research shows that Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids may be helpful in reducing the inflammation associated with arthritis, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Chronic inflammation can cause joint problems and can even lead to heart disease, diabetes, liver or kidney disease and cancer. Add great nutrition for your pets with emu oil in their daily diet, containing omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to keep inflammation at bay.
4. Dietary Supplement
Emu oil – due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties – can help to reduce swelling, stiffness and pain in muscles, and joint and tendon injuries. Whether your pet has a wound that needs healing, has age associated pain and joint swelling, or just needs an extra boost to help achieve better mobility and comfort, emu oil is an excellent dietary supplement.
5. Atopy Prevention
Prevent your pet from developing allergies to inhaled substances such as pollen and mould. Research suggests fatty acid supplements may be useful to prevent atopy from developing in young animals. Theories suggest giving omega 6 to a pregnant female animal in the last month of pregnancy and during lactation may decrease the incidence of the offspring developing atopy.
