Citrus Oil Extracts / Essential Oils

1
Irritant

Citrus oil extracts and other essential oils should not be applied onto cats or dogs. Cats are more sensitive to poisoning from essential oils, and develop severe signs such as drooling, vomiting, difficulty breathing, skin lesions, and even organ damage from essential oils. Dogs can develop vomiting, inability to walk, depression, and even liver damage from it.
