The KittyBoost is a fundamental for all cats.
While there is a lot of controversy over the use of essential oils in cats, newer studies demonstrate safe use is dependent upon the quality and amounts of the oils used.
The essential oils in KittyBoost are specially selected for a wide variety of feline needs. Expertly blended, and properly diluted, this formulation has been safely used by thousands of cats for years.
How to use KittyBoost™:
It is easiest to apply while your cat is eating and later let them lick the oils off their bodies while grooming.
While your kitty is happily munching, drip a couple drops (1-3 for a cat new to essential oils) of KittyBoost on their spine. It doesn't matter where you drip it and don't try to rub it in.
You can also apply the drops to your own hands and pet them on your cat.
If the cat is feral, start with a few days of prep work before trying to drip the oils onto them. Carry the bottle of oils with you and show it to them lifting it above them to get used to the bottle and the motion of unscrewing the bottle and lifing it over them - establishing the routine. Cats are food motivated. If they are hungry and the human camps out near the food respectfully - they eventually will stay close and eat. After a while, you can "sneak" a topical application to these cats.
You may need to work your way up to allowing your cat to accept the oils. You can start standing near them while they are eating. Then touch their back and eventually get to the place where you can drip the oils on their back.
How Often Should I Apply KittyBoost?
This really can vary with what you are attempting to do for your animal. For general health and well being, try to apply a KittyBoost at least monthly.
As part of a flea and tick prevention / treatment or with illness situations, you can use the KittyBoost daily, and in some cases twice a day! Usually every 3-7 days, is adequate for most conditions that require more than maintenance.
In general, apply the KittyBoost once, then see how your animal responds. You will be able to judge if the results you see last 1 day, 3 days, or maybe a week.
