Why You Should Care About Isopropyl Alcohol ?
Isopropyl alcohol is rapidly absorbed through your dog’s skin. It has several negative effects, such as:
- Skin irritation and excessive dryness.
- Delays healing of skin tissue.
- Removes the skin’s naturally occurring moisture barrier.
- Can cause respiratory tract irritation when inhaled.
- Is a neurotoxin (harming the nervous system).
- It contains petroleum-based propene, which makes it unfit to drink … and twice as toxic as ethanol.
- The liver oxidizes isopropyl alcohol into acetone. With prolonged exposure this process can damage the kidneys.
Isopropyl alcohol has a few other names:
- Propyl alcohol
- Isopropyl alcohol
- 2-propyl alcohol
- Dimethyl carbinol
If you prefer to avoid ethyl alcohol, look for these ingredients instead:
- Alcohol-free witch hazel
- Apple cider vinegar
- Floral waters/Hydrosols
- Aloe vera juice
- Vegetable glycerin
- Purified water
