Chemicals that Cause Dog Itchy Skin

Sometimes it’s easy to forget the products and chemicals that we use to beautify and protect ourselves and our homes can be dangerous — even deadly — to our dogs.

Make a conscious effort to purchase organic, natural and safe sprays for your home. If a product is questionable, don’t use it! And if you just must…then keep your dog far away.

The following is a list of potentially harmful sprays and chemicals that you might have lying around your house.
