Tea Tree oil can be toxic to dogs, but this is most commonly found with application of the direct oil to the skin, and more concerning - ingestion of the oil. Most notably in low concentrations in shampoo products, it is not found to have side effects.
No - did you see the information I listed above?
If concerned, was again with a dawn dishwashing soap as a shampoo.
But in these combination shampoo products, we do not typically get concerned about toxicity.
Are you still typing?
I have answered above.
This would not be a concern.
Typically - no.
But because they are different in their composition of their skin vs ours - they are not preferred.
Often - dry skin.
Flaking, scratching, and infections.
Dogs rarely need regular shampoo
If they do - best to use a safe, gentle shampoo - such as an oatmeal based.
Unless they have a specific skin condition or get dirty.
An oatmeal based shampoo is common as listed above.
I understand your concern - but as compared to direct application of oil - this is not considered toxic and I have never seen a toxin case from a shampoo with a history such as yours.
There is no other specific therapy, that should be fine.
How long ago did you actually use the other shampoo?
Yes, Dawn would then help remove any other residue.
No - as I listed above - it is not expected to be a danger.
But if you are concerned, that is the way to remove remaining residue after your other washes.
From experience - it should be fine without any other therapy.
But as you appear quite nervous - if you wanted the extra step, Dawn would be that step.
You are very welcome.
