Human hair dye leaves a dog in nearly died situation

Violet the 5lb Maltese mix after her previous owner tried to dye her purple using hair color meant for humans

A dog suffered a near-fatal allergic reaction after its owners dyed its fur purple using human hair dye.

Pinellas County Animal Services posted the story of Violet, a white Maltese mix, to their Facebook page on Tuesday, alongside several graphic images of the dog's life-threatening burn injuries. The shelter, which named her Violet, said her skin was covered in burns, her eyes were swollen shut and her body was limp. "We gave fluids, pain meds and we gently washed as much of the chemical dye off as we could, we bandaged her up".

"We began the arduous process of shaving off her hair to really measure the damage - to our horror her skin began to slough off".

When owners take it to an extreme and use colored dye intended for humans, it takes it to a whole new level.

"She wasn't out of the woods but she was alert and freely offering kisses", Pinellas County Animal Services posted on Facebook.

In a Facebook post, one of the vets who tended to Violet declared that on the night when she was brought in, she and her colleagues were astounded by the fact that she managed to make it the night.

"We can only assume because we dont know what actually happened or why they did it", Brightwell said. Dogs can't have human hair dye put on them as it causes them great pain and can even kill them.

Staff weren't sure if Violet would make it through the night.

People can be idiots when it comes to their pets.

"And if we ever get an owner identified who did this, then we will work with law enforcement to try and pursue charges", Brightwell said.

"When the final badges came off we breathed a collective sigh of relief – Violet was lovely", the post read.

"Because if she had been taken to another shelter, I think most likely she wouldve been just euthanized", said Anderson, a Tennessee native and Dunedin resident.

Three months later, Violet is doing well and has new owners.

The seriousness of her injuries meant animal rescuers in Florida feared the worst for the dog, especially when she began to shed skin. "Shes really sassy, but shes wonderful".
