Is it safe to use an oral care gel on my dog that contains alcohol?

Q.I have a dog who has gingivitis. I read about an oral care gel for dogs that contains alcohol and grape seed extract, which are both known to be toxic to dogs. My veterinarian informed me that products with any amount of alcohol should not be given to dogs. Do you think it is safe to use this product?


A.For decades, I have been using homeopathic and herbal formulations in alcohol tinctures, some rather strong, to successfully treat many thousands of animals. This even includes cats and dogs with liver disease. If the product you reference is on the market, I’m certain the proper trials have been performed before release. If you’re still in doubt, you might want to contact the company with your question.
