Emu Oil - Canine's
Dr. Greg Drummond, owner of
Village Royale Animal Clinic in Royal Palm Beach, Florida has been using
emu oil in his practice for the past five years.
Drummond mainly applies pure
emu oil on canine skin lacerations and open wounds and relates that he
feels the animals heal faster when the oil is used. "The emu oil
has helped out a good deal, and we have not seen any side effects
associated with it."
The experienced veterinarian
also feels emu oil helps reduce scarring. "I have seen
incision areas smoothed over fairly nicely."
So what is it that impresses
the animal doctor the most about emu oil?
Says Drummond, "Faster
healing of animals. And we don't use much oil. A thin application
is all that is necessary."
Clients are sent home with
some emu oil so that it can continued to be applied to the animal's
wound a couple times a day, as recommended by Drummond, and the response
has been good.
"One client recently
came in who has used it on her Scottie that has a severe skin condition
affecting the nasal area of the face. She believes she sees an
improvement with the condition using the emu oil," says Drummond.
Because "he's seen not
ill effects" from it and feels that emu oil has been "quite a
benefit in a few cases that he's worked with," Drummond plans to
continue to use emu oil in his practice.
