On the one hand, it might not really have aloe in it. Saponin isn’t good for dogs, either. On the other hand, if the maker thought that aloe would be a selling point for dog or cat owners, then they probably can’t be trusted to select pet safe ingredients in general.
Does anyone have a dog roller like me? If you’ve had dogs, you know it’s pretty cut and dry. Either your dog rolls in the foulest things on earth, or they don’t. My dogs are Treeing Walker Coonhounds, and the breed is the most hyper of all the coonhounds. Google it. My female, Hazel, can track a scent as well as her grandfather --he won the UKC Coonhound World Championship I believe in 2004–but instead of finding a raccoon in a tree and barking at it until the hunter comes, Hazel’s specialty is hurling her body down on ANY decaying animal in one second, or less. She is also as fond of any age of any species of mammalian poop; she’s not picky! She’s the one who sleeps in my bed. Will these wipes be used? You bet! When she has to get in my car to return home from a state park walk, there aren’t many bathing options. These wipes will help greatly.
So, roller or no? I am curious how many people have one?
@ZooDoctor I’ve never had a dog that liked to lay on her back like I see all the time in videos. Maybe because of that, I almost never had one roll in nasty stuff. Off the top of my head, I can think of one time over the course of three dogs.
@ZooDoctor Yup, our boxer/greyhound mix rolled on a dead decaying sneck before I could stop her.
It was very difficult to neutralize that smell, although it was nothing like as difficult as skunk spritz, but still.
Be careful taking dogs to State Parks. My friend had one dog that almost died from Kidney Failure and the other dog was in Vet Hospital for about a week. They pick up the disease from wild animal urine, and Humans can contract it as well. There is a vaccine for it, but not always effective. The vaccinated dogs can continue to shed the bacteria in urine. BTW, my BF dogs like to roll in Deer Poop or any stinky things they can find. Big Pair of Basset Hound Boys… The disease is Leptospirosis. Beware and hopefully no one else’s dogs will contract. Doggy Dialysis was estimated at 10K a treatment… That’s Just Crazy Bob!
@Mandamm Ours are both Lepto Vaxxed, but if I can keep them from any poop at all I do.
That said, we have deer, and every other NE-USA wildlife living in the yard with them/us, so it’;s hard to know what they might be exposed to exactly. I do know that our retriever[?]-mix boyo has played with an opossum [alive, but playing dead] and a woodchuck [actually dead], but the vet said no special treatment was needed.
Can I ask: why did you single out State Parks?
