My woman has started using a therapeutic grade essential oil blend with me for my arthritis. It is made by a veterinarian that has used essential oils in her vet practice for years and wrote a book on essential oils and animals.
My people say I don't seem to be as stiff when it gets cold and my woman has been noticing that when I go down the garage steps, I don't always skip my left rear leg over the last step now. Last night I jumped up onto our bed twice instead of waiting to get picked up and put on the bed.
Today I got a massage with a couple of drops of another oil blend for muscles and bones. I have been saying no to the smell but my woman has been putting it on herself and I've decided the smell is pretty nice now. And the smell has pretty much gone away now so I'm happy.
