Haru: Essential Oil and Supplements

HARU1Haru is a young female sable ferret (Approx 2 years old), Fed a complete and balanced home made raw diet with wholeprey since she was a kit. This little girl has cataracts which forms before she was barely even 1 year of age. She is somewhat dainty and is definitely my heart ferret. Originally from a Back Yard Breeder, she came home with me, and another ferret called Yuuki.

Haru had so much improvement when I switched her to a balanced raw diet. She originally had on and off issues with her muscles but after much stress and patience, her little body began to fill out as it should. I was very ecstatic, not only was she visibly healthier, but she seemed emotionally and mentally healthier too.

This year, Haru was having some issues with her coat. Her tail was losing some hair, likely due to shedding. However not only that, her physical appearance was a bit dull and her energy went down a bit more than I thought it would. The seasons changed so I was expecting some change in behaviour, but not to this extent.

She was getting 1-2 drops when I started, approx every three days using a petting technique.  CritterBoost is an RTU blend of Essential Oils. This means it is Ready To Use. Already pre-diluted so I did not need to worry about safe dilution rates for my animals.
For more information on the benefits of CritterBoost, I recommend you read this.


A couple of weeks ago, I randomly tested her as part of practice for my studies. I then found out that Haru had a BG reading was 46 mg/dL (2.6 mmol/L.) I eventually increased the CritterBoost to approx 3-4 drops and within 3 days, I saw some improvement, she had a reading of 58 mg/dL (3.2 mmol/L.) I again decided to increase drops to 5-6 and within 3 days, she had another great result of 70 mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L.)

I then ordered in some SugarBalance, and Standard Process Feline Whole Body Support.

To learn more about SugarBalance, Read this.

I have started using just the SugarBalance, 1-2 drops once this week, using petting technique. So far she has only had one application of the SugarBalance, along with 1 tablet of the Supplement once daily, crushed into her food. She now currently has a BG reading of 106 mg/dL (5.9 mmol/L.)

I’m incredibly impressed and super ecstatic that Haru has been improving. At this stage, she will NOT be placed on Pred! Go Haru!
