Read more details to find out how unsafe it is to colour dye your pet’s fur and why this latest Instagram trend is extremely unhealthy for dogs and cats.
It’s strange how quirky fashion trends can be very demanding when applied on animals. One latest not so welcomed fashion trend trotting in animal kingdom is dying the pet’s fur. The internet is flooded with photos of pink colored Pomeranians and Chow-Chows closely resembling a Panda bear.
French model Lia Catreux is a proud owner of Fluffy, a Pomeranian with a huge fan following on Instagram. And this four legged wannabe model made its debut at a Paris (Fall/Winter collection) Fashion show, walking the runway for our very own Manish Arora. So far so good! But the one thing that drew flak from animal activists and lovers is the unnatural colored coat of Fluffy- the Doggy.
Sadly social media trends are being blindly followed as the new role model in today’s day and age. Poor dogs are being succumbed to hair dying by the not so discerning pet owners all across the globe.
Animal activist Amrita Phool Gujral talks about the growing trend of colored canines participating in pet shows. She is of the opinion that a pet is a member of the family and not an object of ostentation! Natural coat of dogs is beautiful in itself, their natural hair color ranges from white, chocolate, golden, auburn, black and similar shades & tints.
Delhi based veterinarian Dr. Vijay Kumar is strictly against the use of colors on pets. Another vet Dr. Rita Goyle stresses on the hazardous nature of even the herbal dyes and the damage they can cause on the coat and skin of the animal over a period of time.
Therefore we can conclude that there is nothing known as an organic/dog friendly hair dye. Even Herbal dyes are not 100% safe.
The CEO of PETA India Poorva Joshipura expresses her take on the subject, “Dying an animal’s fur can cause the animal stress and can lead to complications or allergic reactions that may put the animal’s health in danger. Dogs and cats love their human companions, regardless of how we look. Why not extend the same kindness to them? Animals are gorgeous as they are”.
Let’s take a look at a few reasons why dyeing animal hair/fur is a torture not worth subjecting your pet to:
Potato, Bean and Sweet-corn a chow-chow trio owned by a Singapore national Meng Jiang are followed by more than two thousand Instagram users simply because they look like pandas and not dogs. This is nothing more than another foolish attempt by the owner to use toxic hair dyes on the mute four legged beings.
Just because these pets can’t voice the discomfort caused, doesn’t validate such an act. Join hands with Petsworld to express displeasure and spread awareness on the negatives of dying animal hair. #Sparethedogcampaign #Perceivepetsasnatureintendedthemtobe
