Can dogs have Cade oil?

can dogs have cade oilNo



Cade oil can be toxic for dogs if ingested. It's a potent oil extracted from the wood of the juniper trees that's used topically to treat skin conditions in dogs due to its anti-parasitic and antiseptic properties. It can also be used in canine aromatherapy to boost mood and alleviate lethargy.


  • When used topically in the correct method, cade oil has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects that can help treat various skin conditions in dogs, including dry skin, hot spots, flea allergies, and dermatitis, when applied to dogs' skin.
  • When used in aromatherapy, cade oil can help energize lethargic dogs.


  • When taken orally, fully processed cade oil can potentially irritate the lining of the dog's mouth, which can cause serious health issues, including breathing problems. In severe cases, it can lead to seizures, organ failure, and coma.
  • Cade oil may cause poisoning when ingested or applied to the skin in large amounts. The oil contains chemical components that can be toxic to dogs. As such, cade oil should not be used for puppies and pregnant dogs.
  • Some formulations of cade oil may contain cancer-causing compounds, which make it unsafe for dogs when taken orally or applied to the skin.


  • Due to its potency and concentration, cade oil must be diluted before topical use. Mix a few drops of cade oil with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, in a 1:10 ratio (1 drop of cade oil with 10 drops of carrier oil).
  • Test the diluted cade oil on a small patch of skin. If redness or irritation develops, don't use it. If the oil does not cause any irritation, you can apply a thin layer to the affected area on your dog's skin, being careful to avoid the eyes and nose.
  • Diluted cade oil can also be used in aromatherapy for dogs. Diffuse the cade oil in a well-ventilated area for not more than 10 minutes.
