Has your dog eaten Lush soap? Are you worried about the Lush soap making him sick? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. We understand this kind of situation can be scary.
In this article, we’ve put together some information on Lush soap and whether or not it can make your dog sick. Let’s get started!
What is Lush Soap?
Lush soap is produced by a British company, which is headquartered in Poole, UK. Lush started in 1995 and has since spread to 951 stores around the world. The company produces handmade cosmetics, including soap, shower gels, and much more.
The company uses vegetarian recipes for their products. Their ingredients are sourced from cruelty-free companies. This means any ingredients used in the soap and other products have not been animal tested. Ingredients are all-natural and come from fruits, plants, and more.
But can Lush soap make your dog sick?
Lush Soap & Dogs
When researching this article, we found many instances of pet parents’ dogs eating Lush soap. Dogs seem to love Lush soap!
We couldn’t find much information on symptoms, etc. However, a couple of articles suggested that Lush soap is not toxic to dogs. However, we would have to say that it depends on the ingredients used in the soap and how much of the soap your dog has eaten.
Each Lush soap is made of natural ingredients; however, the ingredients so vary depending on the type of soap. One soap we found contained sugar. Eating too much sugar can make a dog sick. There was no note on how much sugar the bar contained. In general, the smaller your dog and the more soap he’s eaten, it’s possible he could become sick. On the other hand, the larger your dog is, and if he ate one bar of soap, he would probably be OK.
Symptoms of Dogs Eating Lush Soap
You may notice these symptoms if your dog has eaten Lush soap:
One article we read, where a dog had eaten Lush soap, said that the dog began to foam from the mouth when it was vomiting. The foam was caused by the soap, nothing else. So, it’s possible your dog could have a similar symptom with a foamy mouth.
If your dog vomits and has diarrhea, this should not last longer than 12-24 hours. However, if it does, or your dog is showing other concerning symptoms, or you’re worried, then it’s time to call the vet.
The good news is that your dog will be OK even after eating this soap!
