Lavender Essential Oil: Applications and the Evidence for its Effect on Animal Behavior

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    In the continuum of whole pet health care there is a great demand by pet guardians to include products derived from natural sources. Unfortunately, the research or evidence to support the use and/or safety of various complementery or alternative care modalities is generally lacking in the veterinary literature.

    In this Specialty Update, we review the evidence to support the use of lavender as part of the management of behavioral health in animals.  Discussion includes:

    - Lavender and its chemical constituents
    - Publications in the veterinary literature supporting the use of lavender in the management of animal behavioral health

    Running time: 22 mins
