Exhale will offer support. Regular diffusion of Exhale within shelters, veterinary clinics, boarding facilities, training facilities, and anywhere that dogs will co-mingle - could help to stop the spread of contagions - along with providing a very pleasant smell for the area.
How To Use Exhale™
For normal use and to just make your house smell great, we recommend 1-3 drops in 100 mL in a water based diffuser.
In acute respiratory situations, you may want to diffuse in a small room or next do your dog. You will want to diffuse for at least 20 minutes - but can diffuse longer if they seem to have more comfort from longer diffusion.
Of course, in acute respiratory situations, monitor carefully and do not overwhelm your dog.
You can diffuse between 1-3 times a day.
Note: This blend is for water-based diffusion and is not recommended topically or in a mist.
