Dyes that are safe for your pets

Food coloring: There are ways to dye your animal that are non-toxic. Food coloring or even natural dyes from foods (like beets for pink hair) are natural, non-toxic ways to add color to your dog’s hair. Some people even recommend using food coloring to get your pet’s hair the perfect shade.

Dyes for pets: There are also all sorts of semi-permanent dyes on the market specifically made for pets, like these gels that come in all sorts of bright, fun colors.

Pet hair sprays: Just like you used to use at Halloween to get your hair that perfect shade of witch green, now you can get colored hair sprays to use on your pets for special occasions. It’s advertised as completely non-toxic and washes off with soap and water.

Pet fur chalk: PetSmart and other groomers offer a “chalking” option that rubs colored “chalk” onto sections of the pet’s hair to add a little touch of fun color.

But even if there is a safe way to color your pet’s hair, is it a good idea? Probably not. When Alessandra Ambrosio was spotted with her cute Bichon Frise dyed pink and purple a couple years back, the animals rights group PETA was not pleased.

“What most people don’t know is that dyeing a companion animal’s fur can cause the animal stress and can lead to complications or allergic reactions that endanger the animal’s health,” PETA’s statement against dyeing animals. “Our dogs and cats love us regardless of how we look; why not extend the same kindness to them?”

A fair point, to be sure.

Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan also cautions against dyeing your animal’s fur simply because of the added, unnecessary stress it places on it. Your pet doesn’t know what’s going on and can be confused and have a hard time adjusting to its zany new color.
