Is This Pet Necessity Causing Cancer in Your Dog?

Your pet shampoo could be a culprit for cancer — especially if it’s a medicated one such as Episoothe, Allergroom, Sebolux, Allermyl or Etiderm from popular manufacturer, Virbac.

These, and other shampoos, contain Diethanolamine (DEA), a chemical that is used for emulsifying or adjusting a products pH (acidity) which is listed on California’s list of Chemicals Known to the State to Cause Cancer or Reproductive Toxicity .

Find a natural alternative by checking labels. I use Life’s Abundance and Chubbs Bars (very easy-to-use and effective vegan shampoo bars with mostly organic ingredients) while the author of this article has a couple of suggestions for you: EarthBath Oatmeal & Aloe Shampoo  and Dr. Mercola’s Organic Pet Shampoos.
