    NO!!!! It is very very toxic, both if swallowed, gets on his skin, and especially in his eyes, mouth, nose, ears. Its as strong as acid. Clorox is used in a very diluted mixture with water for inanimate surfaces, it is NEVER used on living things. Put that bottle down!

    No! Clorox is toxic to humans if we breathe it in too much and is bad for your skin. Imagine what it could do to a dog! It would at the very least give it a horrible rash that would need medical attention. Most likely it would kill it. If you are going to give your dog a bath many pet stores sell dog shampoo or you can use a mild human shampoo like head and shoulders. Also downy (?) Dish soap or ivory liquid soap are okay just make sure you wash out all the suds or it can cause irritation. Mane n tail shampoo also works. Also oatmeal shampoo is good for dogs. If you are trying to kill ticks there are many shampoos at pet stores that get rid of them. For fungus or dandruff try a bath with iodine (one part iodine mixed with two parts soap and two parts water make sure you rinse it all out and be careful as it will stain)

    No you can not give a dog a bath in Clorox. It is a harmful chemical and if ingested at all could kill them such as licking at the water or at there chemical coated fur.

    You try it first. If it doesn't hurt you, then no, you still can't do it to your dog.
