Western traditional medicine has very few medications to protect people or dogs from virus infections. In fact, there is now a worldwide problem of bacterial drug resistance to all medications because doctors and vets have been prescribing antibiotics for viral infections for decades. Viruses cannot be killed or treated with antibiotic treatment. But there are other treatments that are anti-viral. Essential oils can treat viral infections.
Many essential oils are anti-viral. They are safe when used appropriately. Many of them are also anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Because they are not commonly used bacteria and fungi have not developed resistance to these treatments.
Your local holistic veterinarian can help you with essential oil treatments to treat your dog’s viral and other infections.
