The good old question- Can I use Vaseline on my dog?   We answer that question and dig into some alternatives. According to dermatologist Dr. Alan Dattner, the founder of HolisticDermatology.com, the components of oil removed during the making of petroleum jelly are, in some cases, canceer causing.  While Vaseline itself, is highly refined and purified and classified as non-carcinogenic, the same is not known about all other brands. Stay away from any products that you can not determine if it is non-carcinogenic. Always consult your Veterinarian for any skin issues your pup my be having.
