Calming Spray for Dogs

Poor Miss Molly! Truth be known, all my pups get super anxious with loud noises and when they have to see the vet!

However, I don’t like giving them medication and look for natural solutions. I love essential oils and finally landed on this great all-natural spray using essential oils for pets.

I need to get some essential oil. I notice the dogs getting more excited when we go out of the house and not take them. @tisonlyme143
