Just as there is a growing acceptance to alternative medical treatments for humans, some veterinary offices are offering alternative treatment options for pets. The clinic owned by Dr. Mary Hess utilizes traditional and alternative treatment options in her veterinary office, MariLa Veterinary Clinic, located in Wisconsin. One unique treatment option is the use of Therapeutic Essential Oils to treat a number of conditions. Within the office there is a consultation business M&M Aromapet. For a long distance consultation, owner’s need to provide appropriate records prior to the consultation. There will be no therapeutic essential oil treatment protocol designed for your dog without first submitting the dog’s correct history and records.
Shared on the M&M Aromapet website is background information and history of the use of essential oils of therapeutic grade. It is noted that essential oils are derived from plants through the method of steam distillation. After extracted the oils are graded using the standards of International Standards for essential Oils. Only the essential oils passing this test are used for therapeutic applications. Therapeutic Essential Oils have been around since the time of the Egyptians and were used during Biblical times. As “modern” medicine evolved, the uses of the oils were forgotten. However, as noted, problems in the use of modern medicine, the toxic effect of too many chemicals in the environment and the public’s desire to seek alternative and natural solutions for both human and pet health problems rejuvenated the use of essential oils and other non-traditional medical treatment options.

The rates are:
$65.-First conversation and history

Just as conventional medication and treatments are often better served seeking alternative care, dog’s systems and overall health may be better treated by the use of essential treatment oils, Reiki, or other alternative forms of care. The MariLa Veterinary clinic’s desire to consult with clients worldwide is an option dog and pet owners should pursue.
