Is it safe to dye your dog?

I've seen some pink poodles around the neighborhood. It seems to be really in lately. Is it safe for the dogs?

Absolutely not! There are no hair dyes made specifically for dogs. Any hair dyes used contain toxins that can cause skin problems such as burns, allergic reactions. Dogs lick their fur and will ingest the toxins. The dyeing process can also be upsetting for a dog. Enjoy a dog's natural coat - it's a thing of beauty when properly cared for and nature's colors are just right.
