Thank you. I sent this link to a friend of mine who sometimes has the ears of her dogs dyed. (Like green or red at Christmas time.)

I don't enjoy seeing dogs "dressed up" let alone having their fur dyed !!

What happened to "dignity" ??

It was quite the thing in the 60's to dye poodles in pastel colors. Looked cute but not a good thing to do. They also experimented with coloring goldfish, painting the backs of turtles, gluing jewels on bugs which then were chained to a pin and you could wear them like jewelry. I was just a kid but I remember walking into a jewelry store with a jeweled beetle that my friend loaned me and the jeweler started to touch it thinking it was actual jewelry. When it moved he panicked and yelled at me to leave the store NOW. Awwww. After that I decided animals should be in nature's colors and not adorned with anything. Poor doggie with the purple dye!


WARNING! This person is extremely blonde...please type SLOWLY.

I have to think this was an allergic reaction.
How else would this hair dye have passed inspection for use on humans?
It's not just a matter of the dog licking itself and ingesting the dye because they say the skin was burned.

My guess is it was an allergy to paraphenylenediamine such as this woman had
http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/03/21...o-hair-dye.html

Even though the "strand test" was negative, she had a life-threatening allergic reaction to a hair dye she thought was "natural" and free of paraphenylenediamine.

paraphenylenediamine (PPD) used to be banned in many European countries, but is now allowed by the EU and US. I have to wonder why.

A lot of things are safe for a human, like chocolate, but can be deadly for dogs.

I've known dogs that eat anything they can fit in their mouths, including chocolate someone left on the counter, and are none the worse for eating it. Clearly not all dogs are bothered by chocolate, though since they're carnivores it's not their natural food.

People have had to go to the hospital for PPD allergies and there is even the death of a 17-year-old girl suspected to be from a severe allergic reaction to PPD in hair dye.

I seem to remember my grandparents feeding their dog chocolate too without any apparent problems.

The size of the dog will have an impact on how they handle foods and other items that they normally wouldn't ingest. A smaller dog will naturally have a much smaller liver and kidneys. As a result, ingredients that we take for granted as being a food or spice can be dangerous because they simply don't have the capacity to process the concentration of certain ingredients. Something approved for humans could very well be toxic for a dog, because there are acceptable concentrations of toxins allowed by the FDA that we have the capacity to process through our systems.

Smallish dog, back is about knee high when standing, eats anything, including chocolate, including half an unguarded chocolate cake and the paper plate it was sitting on, including candy bars someone left on the counter, etc. It will eat all kinds of vegetables too. It's not picky at all. Anything it sees being eaten, anything that smells like something it's seen being eaten, the dog thinks it's food.

There are certainly dogs that aren't harmed by chocolate. Enough people have told me their dogs have eaten chocolate with no ill effects that I wonder what percentage really are harmed by it. Not that I'd advocate deliberately feeding chocolate to a dog, but I wouldn't advocate feeding a paper plate to one either.

I don't think diminishing the importance of PPD allergies in humans or denying a possible PPD allergy in a dog is helpful. People can be allergic to peanuts, and there are usually warnings on food that contains peanuts. There are no such warnings about PPD on packages of hair dye.

Is a concentration "acceptable" because over 99% of people aren't killed by anaphylactic shock after being exposed to it, and reactions are usually non-lethal? Is it not worth labelling something with that potential?
