Can Argan Oil or an Argan oil shampoo be used on dogs

CriticalCareVet :

Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and specialist and will do my best to assist you today!

CriticalCareVet :

Are you referring to this oil straight on the skin or with this specific shampo?

CriticalCareVet :

If the shampoo - what is the name of the product?

Customer:

I am not aware of the specific name of the shampoo, all I know is that it is usually used on human hair, not a dog shampoo.

CriticalCareVet :

Thank you for your reply.

CriticalCareVet :

In general, these would not be oils I would use at 100% concentration on the skin.

CriticalCareVet :

That can be irritating.

CriticalCareVet :

With that said, there are many common shampoo products which have this ingredient and it is completely safe to do so in mixtures such as this.

Customer:

What about as a human hair shampoo with this oil in it I do not now the ratio of oil my advice to her was human shampoo should not be used at all on animals and I am aware that many oils could be dangerous to animals. I have no experience with this particular product. I have been an animal groomer for over 22 years experience with master training. In my opinion her dog really needed to seek Vet advice I am not a Vet but her current treatment of this particular product seemed wrong.

CriticalCareVet :

We do not encourage the use of human products.

Customer:

Thank you for your assistance Regards Annie

CriticalCareVet :

You are very welcome Annie
