Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and specialist and will do my best to assist you today!
Are you referring to this oil straight on the skin or with this specific shampo?
If the shampoo - what is the name of the product?
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.
Thank you for your reply.
In general, these would not be oils I would use at 100% concentration on the skin.
That can be irritating.
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.
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.
We do not encourage the use of human products.
Thank you for your assistance Regards Annie
