Yes. Black pepper oil is safe to administer to dogs orally and topically. It treats a wide range of health issues such as joint pains and sore muscles. Only give dogs small amounts of black pepper oil to prevent digestive upset.


  • Although black pepper oil is known for having a positive effect on alleviating digestive issues in dogs, no specific research has been done on the appropriate dosage specifically for dogs.
  • Black pepper oil has anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial for dogs with arthritis and joint pains when applied topically.
  • It is one of the best oils for soothing sore muscles and treating bruised skin when used topically.
  • Black pepper oil can also warm a dog's body after being outside in the cold.
  • Black pepper oil is known to help a dog reduce anxiety after surgeries when used as a diffuser.


  • Black pepper oil has a warming effect; always mix it with a dog-friendly currier oil. Over-concentrated black pepper oil can cause skin irritation.


  • Black pepper oil must be diluted before use for canines. To dilute the black pepper oil, mix it with carrier oil, such as coconut oil or olive oil. The recommended dilution ratio is 1 to 2 drops of essential oil per 50 drops of carrier oil.
  • You can add 1-2 drops of black pepper oil to a homemade broth, which you can give to your dog to keep him warm in the winter.
  • For topical use: Gently warm a few drops of the diluted black pepper oil in your palms before applying it to the dog’s skin. Apply the oil to the affected area using gentle, circular motions.
  • When diffusing black pepper oil, add 1 drop to your diffuser first and see if the dog likes it. Then, run the diffuser intermittently when used as a pet aid, 10 minutes at a time, and give it 30 minutes to allow the air to clear afterward. Do not leave it on for extended periods.
