Poison ivy/oak

Severity scale:

We all know the song "Poison Ivy" or "You're gonna need an ocean of calamine lotion" right?! Summer time would not be complete without at least one family member getting Poison Ivy. Our dogs and cats are lucky though! They are not susceptible to the itchy, red rash that people are. What you have to be careful of is that, while they may not show signs of concern, they can pass the oil on to their human family members. Watch out! If you have been hiking, or camping, or out in the woods with your dog and think they may have rubbed up against Poison Ivy. Give them a good bath (with gloves on) so that they do not pass the oil on to you!
