WoofPost.Com - Dogs And Poison Ivy

Laguna Niguel, CA - With summer here and poison ivy everywhere, even growing in urban and suburban environments, here’s what dog owners need to know about this poisonous plant and their dogs.


Poison ivy, identified by its “leaves of three” contains an oil called urushiol, which causes most humans to break out in an unbearably itchy oozing red rash. The bad news is yes dogs can get poison ivy.

But the good news is that it doesn’t happen very often.

For most dogs, the skin is protected by their fur from oil. But, if owners have a dog with very thin fur, or a short coat, the oil may be able to penetrate all the way to the skin and cause irritation.
