I'm putting this out as a by-product of another post. In the other post a poster has used 'Savlon' on their dogs skin, savlon is designed & manufactured for human skin not dogs. Human skin is a part of their biological exhaust system, it releases heat & fluids, it 'breaths' is a common word used. Canine skin is totally different, there are no pores or fluid release mechanisms, a dogs exhaust system is through its mouth in the form of panting savlon, its skin cannot breath. Any creams designed for human skin, in all its attributes, should not be used on dogs without first consulting a vet to get the OK or otherwise, same applies to human food all of which is 'processed' in some way.
