Dyed Dogs

A pink poodle?!? A blue Bichon? A red Rat Terrier?!? Dying your pets’ fur is the latest trend in pet grooming? But is it safe? Like all other topical products, if it designed for pets’ skin and used as directed, its probably ok. There is a line of gel-type dyes made specifically for dogs, with the dye being certified safe by the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association. But does that mean its ok for YOUR dog? Maybe not…Every dog can react differently to topical products. The dye must also sit for 15 minutes and lasts 4-6 washes “if applied appropriately”. At my house, its enough of an ordeal to bathe 3 dogs with shampoo, much less have them sit still for 15 minutes to be dyed… My vote? Leave it to the professional groomers at Grooming Shows!
