Essential Oils toxic for Cats

Post by dalefelton450 » Tue Oct 08, 2019 6:41 am

Many essential oils that we use are very dangerous for cats:

These include:
Peppermint, Lemon Oil, Lavender Oil, Melaleuca Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Cinnamon Bark Oil, pennyroyal, hyssop, thyme, eucalyptus, tea tree, wormwood, camphor, sage, rosemary and tansy.

Even having the oils on our hands then petting the cat can be dangerous, as they will ingest them when they lick their fur.
