Social Distancing While Taking Your Dog Out Of The House in the Age of Covid-19.

The Febreze(TM) Controversy

Febreze(TM) is a household product from Procter & Gamble that eliminates odors on fabrics. There has apparently been some controversy in the safety of this product around pets. We have not had any personal experience with this product, but have seen several recent TV commercials for this product. Below we have listed the product manufacturers website, the poison control centers website and websites with letters from pet owners.

Letters from our Viewers

"Just wanted to give some feedback on Febreeze. My dog (a Black Lab/Gordon Setter mix) started itching the first day I slightly
spayed my car and carpets with Febreeze. The itching continued until her hair was falling out by the handfull. The reaction was so bad she ended up taking cortisone, which led to an almost life-threatening condition. (Fortunately, I stopped the cortisone just in time.) I have talked with several other dog owners who have had the same experience." JT 6/18/00
