Canine perfume sprays can be found in the grooming department of most pet supply stores. It may seem like an extravagance, but spritzing Fritzi with a squirt of perfume can serve more than the purpose of freshening her scent. Colognes made with essential oils can have a calming effect to reduce stress or help fend off parasites. With some essential oils, water and a spray bottle you can custom make perfume for Fritzi that is natural and pet-friendly.
