Dog Allergies to Laundry Detergent

Allergies to the components of your laundry detergent can cause your dog to have itchy and irritated skin as well as encouraging chronic skin and ear infections.

Allergies to laundry detergent are caused by the inappropriately aggressive response of the immune system to a protein within that specific detergent. These allergies can be just as unsightly, uncomfortable, and difficult to diagnose for our canine companions as they are for us.

There are many types of laundry detergent, and if one variety of detergent is causing distress to your pet, switching to another variety may alleviate the problem.

Many allergies in dogs have similar symptoms, and your veterinarian’s guidance should be sought for a definitive diagnosis and treatment plan.

Skin reactions are often concentrated around the face, groin, under the front legs, or between the toes. Allergic reactions to laundry detergent can be caused by contact with laundered bedding, dog backpacks or clothing, or by contact with clothing worn by you.

Introducing a Golden Swag Co product and the ONLY of its kind in the Australian Market… SWAG WASH.



Golden Swag’s Premium Laundry Detergent is a dramatic departure from traditional salt-based detergents that use artificial foam builders, dyes, whiteners, softeners, fragrances & thickeners that can irritate sensitive skin and damage the environment.

The 100% plant-based formula cleans without damaging delicate fabrics or reducing your Pup’s swag! While the touch of natural Australian eucalyptus oil leaves toys and bedding clean and fresh, the Tea Tree Oil will help prevent fleas hanging out in your dogs bed!

It is also 100% safe for hoomans… our whole family, including skin-babies, have been using this formula for years!
