Any-Itis RTU contains the same great oils as Any-Itis NEAT, however properly diluted, is much less intense in taste, and is a great alternative for finicky animals or smaller animals. It can also be used in place of Dog Breath when desired or needed.
Fractionated Coconut Oil, Essential Oils of Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis), Helichrysum (H. italicum), Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
Instructions for Use
Cats: Although Any-Itis RTU “could” be used with cats, all of the oils that are within Any-Itis are contained within the KittyBoost – and cats enjoy the application of the KittyBoost so much more – we recommend using it instead. Ingestion or more appropriately mucosal absorption, is still achieved with use of KittyBoost during grooming – and is usually more than adequate for our feline friends. In some cases, the addition of Any-Itis RTU or LITE to foods can be considered when additional help with inflammation is desired, and is generally administered in the same doses recommended for Exotic Animals above. For cats who live with dogs, occasionally a cat will drink from water containing essential oils, or even sneak a bite or two (or more in the case of my Bengal) of foods containing Any-Itis. We have never found this to be an issue, and for the most part, we tend to not add essential oils to cat food or water – due more to the fact that cats are a bit (or a lot) more picky and opinionated! However, we at animalEO believe that you should use the easiest route of administration, that is still the most effective, for all animals. So if most cats prefer topical KittyBoost applications for support – this will be our primary recommendation for you!
Dogs: My preferred method to use Any-Itis for dogs, is certainly by adding to food twice a day. For dogs smaller than 35 pounds – or for those who are particularly sensitive to smells, oils, or flavors – Any-Itis RTU is often perfect! However, we still found some dogs were not fond of any taste within their foods. So Any-Itis LITE is also available. When adding Any-Itis RTU to foods, keep in mind that some dogs may not be fond of the taste.
For every 10 pounds of body weight, 1-3 drops of Any-Itis RTU can be added to foods (we recommend softened and wet foods) and fed twice a day. Start with small amounts, and gradually build up to the desired amount. Long term use can be utilized when needed – and many dogs have been utilizing this blend twice a day for years. The ideal route is ingestion. Any-Itis RTU can also be used with massage or Petting Techniques over areas of discomfort – however I do prefer New Mobility RTU when topical application is desired. Just place several drops (3-5 or more is fine) into your hands, rub them together lightly to distribute oils over your hands, and pet over the area of concern. This can be repeated as needed, usually 1-3 times a day, depending on need. When needed, both oral administration and topical administration can be used. Any-Itis RTU is safe to be given with other medications, anti-inflammatories, and joint supplements.
Birds & Exotics: Any-Itis RTU can be added to food for easy oral administration. Start with 1 drop mixed into a Tablespoon of soft moist foods. Mix well and offer fresh food twice a day. When indicated, Any-Itis RTU can also be used with Petting Techniques to areas of concern. For example, if a chicken has a sore joint or foot, 1-3 drops of Any-Itis RTU could be massaged into the foot or leg area. With some birds or fowl – adding Any-Itis to drinking water has been used quite successfully. Please read fully about adding essential oils to Drinking Water HERE. Any-Itis LITE is also available, and may be a little bit easier for dosing small animals, and contains even less taste than Any-Itis RTU.
Horses, Livestock, & Larger Animals: Any-Itis RTU is mainly used in topical applications for these animals – follow the instructions for dogs for topical use. Any-Itis NEAT is recommended when oral administration is desired.
