Any-Itis® RTU






Ingredients:  Fractionated Coconut Oil, Essential Oils of Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis), Helichrysum (H. italicum), Peppermint (Mentha piperita)


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.


Specific instructions for...


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.  As of November 23, 2018 - a new version of Any-Itis will be available - Any-Itis LITE!  This version may be a little bit easier for dosing small animals, and contains even less taste than Any-Itis RTU.  Please read more below regarding Any-Itis LITE - but remember - it will not be available for order until November 23, 2018.


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 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 inflammatory 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 as of November 23, 2018 - you will also see Any-Itis LITE available (please see below).  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.  This is a wonderful blend for dogs with achy joints, back, or muscles, or with other chronic issues - and the ideal route is ingestion.  Any-Itis RTU can also be used with massage or Petting Techniques over areas of pain or discomfort - however I do prefer New Mobility RTU when strictly 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.


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.  Please see instructions above.

Inflammation as the Enemy:

Every dis-ease condition in a body will have inflammation associated with it - so it is greatly important that inflammation is addressed.  Whether your dog is a canine athlete, your horse is an aged senior, or your cow has a swollen udder; inflammation is a certain part of the symptoms at hand.  Addressing any "-itis" condition your animal may be experiencing - in a whole and complete manner is very important in promoting holistic health.  This can include diet, nutritional supplements, exercise, massage, acupuncture, essential oils, and more to complete your animal's health picture.


Why is it called Any-Itis NEAT?  NEAT refers to the fact that this blend is created from non-diluted essential oils.  So, there is no carrier oil (Fractionated Coconut Oil) within this blend.  With this fact in mind, this is a stronger essential oil blend, more appropriate for use with dogs, horses, and most "larger" animals.  For cats, birds, exotics, and smaller animals - we have created RTU (Ready To Use) and LITE blends which are more appropriate to use.


It is always important to work with your veterinarian for an accurate diagnosis, and for full health advice.  In Dr. Shelton's veterinary work, she routinely uses Any-Itis for animals who would benefit from improved joint function and movement, are sore due to hunting, competition, or athletic exertion, and so much more!*  Any-Itis (NEAT, RTU, & LITE) has been safely used alongside all veterinary medications and protocols - and can be used long-term when needed.




Although a Any-Itis NEAT can be diffused, it is not generally used for this application.



Specific instructions for...


Birds & Exotics:  We recommend the use of CritterBoost and/or Any-Itis RTU or LITE for these species.


Cats:  We recommend the use of KittyBoost for felines.  All of the oils within Any-Itis are within KittyBoost in the proper concentrations for cats.  When they groom - they will get their ideal dosing.  If they are too sore or sick to groom - topical applications as well as inhalation will still be effective for them!


Dogs:  For most dogs Any-Itis NEAT will be used orally - added to meals twice a day.  For topical use, we recommend Any-Itis RTU or New Mobility RTU.  Any-Itis NEAT is far too strong for topical applications.  In general, when topical applications are desired - New Mobility RTU should be selected.

  • For smaller dogs (under 35 pounds), the use of Any-Itis RTU or LITE (see below) is often preferred for ingestion. When adding Any-Itis NEAT to foods, keep in mind that some dogs may not be fond of the taste.  For every 50 pounds of body weight, 1-3 drops of Any-Itis NEAT 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.  This is a wonderful blend for dogs with joint and back discomfort or other chronic musculoskeletal issues.  The ideal route is ingestion - and you may find that diluting the Any-Itis NEAT within Fish Oils, Raw Coconut Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, or other fatty oils or food mixtures that you add into your dogs' diet - will help dissipate any intense peppermint taste resulting from a single drop landing in your dogs' food. 

Horses, Livestock, & Larger Animals:  

  • Any-Itis NEAT can be used orally by dripping directly into the mouth, or mixed with foods or water.  Most of these animals really like the flavor (Peppermint in nature), and it is not difficult to administer.  For most large animals - approximately 1 drop per 100-200 pounds of body weight twice a day is used.  On average a horse or cow will get 5 drops twice a day and a goat may get 2-3 drops twice a day.  It is always best to start with 1 drop, no matter what size animal you are dealing with, and take a few days to gradually increase the amount.
  • Topical use of Any-Itis NEAT:  As we evolve within Veterinary Aromatic Medicine, we find improvements in all of the ways we do things!  Thankfully - learning never ends.  While we can use Any-Itis NEAT topically for many larger animals - we have actually found that Any-Itis RTU which is within Coconut Oil has a longer action time.  While it may not be as powerful initially - it does seem to hold its beneficial actions longer.  And it is not always necessary to jump to neat (undiluted) applications, just because an animal is very large.  Any-Itis in general is wonderful for many conditions in larger animals; muscle soreness, hoof and joint conditions, almost any uncomfortable condition.  The versions of this blend can be dripped directly onto hooves or massaged onto sites of concern as needed. Often 5 or more drops can be placed into your hands, and after you rub your hands together, massage onto the area of discomfort (sore back, legs, hips, etc...).  Any-Itis NEAT can also be diluted for topical use, in Fractionated Coconut Oil - or the use of Any-Itis RTU is also very effective when used topically - even in larger animals.  When topical applications are desired more routinely, and especially for musculoskeletal concerns - I do prefer to recommend the use of New Mobility RTU for use.

 

Any-Itis® NEAT


Ingredients:  Essential Oils of Copaiba (Copaiba officinalis), Helichrysum (H. italicum), Peppermint (Mentha piperita)


Any-Itis NEAT is an undiluted combination of some of the most powerful and beneficial essential oils available.  Any-Itis NEAT is the strongest version of Any-Itis - and is often used for larger dogs, horses, and large animals.  It is dosed at 1 drop per 50# in general (dogs).  You may often hear Dr. Shelton say - Any-Itis NEAT is like eating an Altoid Mint - strong and "pepperminty"...


Copaiba has research showing its powerful effects - while at the same time it is almost odorless, tasteless, and very mild in nature.  Dr. Shelton has used Copaiba Essential Oil as part of many protocols in her veterinary practice to help soothe achy joints and muscles and to enhance the body's natural healing process; often allowing her patients to avoid the use of chronic medications.*


Combining Copaiba with the amazing oils of Helichrysum (which is regarded for supporting nervous system repair, reduction of discomfort, support of over-all healing, as well as aiding in all sorts of circulation issues) and Peppermint (which also soothes achy joints and muscles, enhances the effects of other oils, and is useful in gastrointestinal conditions)* - Any-Itis NEAT delivers amazing results.

 

Any-Itis® LITE


Ingredients:  Fractionated Coconut Oil, Essential Oils of Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis), Helichrysum (H. italicum), Peppermint (Mentha piperita)


Any-Itis LITE was formulated in response to the many "super tiny" dogs in this world, as well as other smaller

animals or those more sensitive to tastes and smells.  Any-Itis LITE contains all of the same great oils as

Any-Itis NEAT, and Any-Itis RTU with one small variation - Any-Itis LITE contains a mixture of two forms of

Copaiba - both the steam distilled and oleoresin.  The best of all worlds! 


Any-Itis LITE contains far less Peppermint in the ratio of essential oils, making it so much less intense in

taste.  Further dilution, two versions of Copaiba, and re-adjusted essential oil ratios - make Any-Itis LITE the

perfect thing to try for any animal that has shown any sort of aversion to the taste or smell of essential oils. 

Any-Itis LITE can also be used in place of Dog Breath when desired or needed.


Specific instructions for...


Birds & Exotics:  Any-Itis LITE can be added to food for easy oral administration.  Start with 1-5 drops mixed into a Tablespoon of soft moist foods.  Mix well and offer fresh food twice a day.  When indicated, Any-Itis LITE 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 LITE could be massaged into the foot or leg area.  With many birds, fowl, and even other animals - adding Any-Itis LITE to drinking water can be used quite successfully.  Please read fully about adding essential oils to Drinking Water HERE.  In general - Any-Itis LITE can be dosed at approximately 1-3 drops per 2 pounds (1kg) of body weight - and that dose is given twice a day.  


Cats:  As with the other versions of Any-Itis - all of the oils within Any-Itis are contained within KittyBoost.  So while Any-Itis "could" be used with cats, we recommend the use of KittyBoost instead (or our new KittyBoost LITE also coming soon!).  Cats enjoy this application more, and will still achieve ingestion during grooming.  In some cases, the addition of Any-Itis LITE to foods can be considered when additional help with inflammation is desired, and is generally administered at 1-3 drops per 2 pounds (1kg).  For cats who live with dogs, and drink from water, eat the dogs food, or are exposed to oils that are not "intended" for cats - please do not worry.  None of the oils will be harmful - they just are not often as "cat friendly" in nature.  So the fact that a cat would not like their food to taste of peppermint, or their hair-coat is more of a consideration.  We strive to keep cats as happy as possible - so that means that almost all recommendations will consider their unique personality - more so than any other issue!  We want the easiest route of administration, that is still the most effective, for all animals.  So if most cats prefer topical KittyBoost applications for inflammatory support - this will be our primary recommendation for you! 


Dogs:  Any-Itis LITE is a great addition to our line-up - and designed specifically for dogs who are more picky in nature.  My goal is to have things very easy, with details instructions.  So Any-Itis LITE hopefully will remedy the situation of dogs not "liking" Any-Itis RTU or Any-Itis NEAT.  My preferred method to use Any-Itis LITE for dogs is by adding to food twice a day.  For very small dogs - or for those who are particularly sensitive to smells, oils, or flavors - Any-Itis LITE is perfect!   



For every 2 pounds of body weight (1kg), 1-3 drops of Any-Itis LITE 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.  If dosing by every 10

pounds is easier for you - consider approximately 5-15 drops per 10 pounds as average.  Remember - on average there

are about 20 drops in a mL...and in a teaspoon of liquid - there is 5mL.  Therefore - if you are concerned at all about

your dog getting "20 drops of fractionated coconut oil added to the food" - I would like you to rest your worries.  It takes

approximately 100 drops, just to make a teaspoon!


 

This is a wonderful blend for dogs with achy joints, back, or muscles, or with other chronic inflammatory issues - and the ideal route is ingestion.  Any-Itis LITE can be used with massage or Petting Techniques over areas of pain or discomfort - however I do prefer New Mobility RTU when topical relief for musculoskeletal issues are 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 LITE is safe to be given with other medications, anti-inflammatories, and joint supplements.


Horses, Livestock, & Larger Animals:  Any-Itis LITE is mainly not recommended for these animals - Any-Itis RTU is recommended for topical use and Any-Itis NEAT is recommended when oral administration is desired.  Please see instructions above.
