Poison Ivy

So, I have just recently learned that you  can get poison ivy from your dog!!

This is from a short blurb in Family Circle Magazine, June 2010 issue, page 128.

Apparently, most pets don't actually get a rash after coming in contact with the poison ivy plant.  They can, however, give YOU the poison ivy by rubbing on you.  Who knew?!?!

They suggest giving your pets a warm soapy bath if they have been outside in areas with low bushes or vines.  And wear rubber gloves when bathing them.

I don't really know what poison ivy looks like.....will have to look into that.  

Well, have a rash free summer.....

Enjoy the day♥♥
