Tea Tree Oil has pain numbing properties and can be used topically for sprains, arthritis, and eczema. DILUTE with carrier oil or shampoo since the pure essential oil would be irritating to sensitive areas. To treat eczema, mange, flea and tick bites mix 5 to 10 drops of tea tree oil in with the lather when you wash your pet and leave on for a few minutes before rinsing.
Tea Tree Oil is also an excellent antifungal and can be employed as a pet medication of yeast infections, fungus and ringworm. For ringworm apply tea tree oil with almond oil to the affected area, or add a few drops of essential tea tree oil to the bath water.

 It is very important to read all product instructions carefully before administering to you pet. Frequently it is used on cats and small dogs without complications by some pet owners but it is strongly suggested that you refrain from using this oil on your small dog or cat. Due to their weak liver function there have been many cases of smaller pets becoming severely ill, suffering permanent side effects, and in some cases loss of life.
Please consult your veterinarian before treating you pets with any concentration of Tea Tree oil.
