Is Tea Tree Oil Safe for Pets?

According to PETMD, tea tree oil is extracted from the leaves of a tree native to Australia and in very small concentrations (.1% to 1%) is safe for cats and dogs to apply topically.  But, tea tree oil is toxic in higher concentrations and if eaten by humans and pets.  Tea tree oil should never be ingested or used in and around the mouth. Because of this, I would recommend not using any products that contain tea tree oil on your cat as cats groom themselves and could ingest it.

how does tea tree oil workTea tree oil is a neurotoxin that affects and attacks the nervous system.  There is no known medication that treats tea tree oil poisoning in pets or humans.  Unfortunately, there is no warning on the packages we purchase in the US.  Just because a product is labelled as natural and environmentally friendly does not mean that it is non toxic or not poisonous.  The best advice is to keep concentrated tea tree oil out of reach of children and pets.  

Tea Tree oil poisoning happens more often than you think.  According to poison.org, Tea tree oil poisoning symptoms are:

  • muscle tremors
  • weakness
  • difficulty walking
  • low body temperature
  • excessive salivation

If you suspect a family member or pet has eaten tea tree oil, call poison control right away.

How does Tea Tree Oil Work?

Tea tree oil is a popular alternative way of dealing with skin issues such as burns, insect bites, bruises, eczema and acne.  That is because tea tree oil has chemicals in it that may kill bacteria and fungus and reduces allergic skin reactions.  According to webMD, you can purchase tea tree oil in an gel that you apply topically on your skin.  It is possibly effective on nail fungus and athlete’s foot.  It is also known to also be an insect repellent, so can work on keeping fleas and ticks off of your dogs. 

Espree Dog Shampoo Review

Espree Tea Tree and Aloe Shampoo is a medicated dog shampoo for dogs with itchy skin.  You can also purchase the matching medicated conditioner.  It is safe to use with topical flea treatments and the tea tree oil is a natural flea repellent. 

Espree’s Dog shampoo only contains simple ingredients that are easy to pronounce such as organic aloe vera, coconut based cleansers, jojoba, Vitamins A, D, E and tea tree oil.  Espree only uses human grade ingredients that are from renewable and sustainable botanical, vegetable and mineral resources.  

This medicated dog shampoo doesn’t contain oatmeal, so it could be a good match for you if your dog is allergic to grains, gluten or wheat.  Just remember to do a patch test to ensure your dog is not allergic before giving them a full bath.

To get the most out of this dog shampoo, massage onto your dog making sure to get down to the skin.  Leave on for 3 minutes.  Rinse thoroughly.  Manufacturer recommends that you do NOT use this shampoo on cats.

Compared to other dog shampoos, Espree products are reasonably priced considering a little goes a long way.  Espree makes a ton of products for pets, from shampoo and conditioner to sprays to paw balm.
