Is witch hazel harmful to dogs?
What are you using it on the dog for? Here is a snippet from cuteness.com about how to use witch hazel on dogs. It is safe:
To apply witch hazel, place some on a cotton pad or cotton ball and lightly blot the affected area of your dog's skin. It may sting at first if the skin is particularly irritated, but it evaporates within seconds. Alternately, you can place some in a spray bottle and lightly mist it on the hot spot.
Avoid applying it too often, since its astringent properties may cause drying. If you notice any unusual swelling or irritation after putting witch hazel on your pup, discontinue use immediately and contact your veterinarian.
Looks like you can! Each dog would vary, so I would use a small amount first and see your dogs reaction.
You can use it very sparingly only on the itchy area
Make sure the dog can't lick it off.
