My two dogs go swimming almost every day in our chlorinated pool. Is this ok?


Chlorine, and other chemicals commonly used in pools, can irritate some dogs’ skin, eyes, and coats. After your dogs go swimming in the pool, it is best if you can rinse them off with fresh, clean water. Also, if you notice your dogs are scratching or developing skin issues, you should keep them out of the pool.
