TUSTIN, CALIFORNIA -- PET OWNERS AND ANIMAL LOVERS BEWARE!!

BAD INFORMATION FROM A SPROUTS SALES ASSOCIATE ALMOST KILLED MY DOG!!!!!!!!!!

A sales associate recommended using Tea Tree Oil on my dog for itching. She claimed she uses it on her dog. After one day my dog became extremely ill and was treated for poisoning. He now shows signs of liver damage.

Sprouts store does not believe they are liable. Sprouts does not stand behind their product nor do they take responsibility for their sales associates.

NO MORE SPROUTS FOR ME, MY FAMILY, AND FRIENDS.

WHOLE FOODS AND WILD OATS FROM NOW ON.

Sounds to me like the SA was just telling you something that she uses on her pet, and not an official endorsement of the product.

You didn't actually feed your dog tea tree oil did you? I believe it's meant to be used topically.

It is nice that you care about your dog.

Desert Essence Relief Spray appears to be a product for human use. Perhaps the OP's dog licked it off after it was applied, which made the dog sick. This product is not produced by Sprouts, and I agree with both of the above replies.

tea tree oil is actually recommended for skin issues since it is a great topical treatment for skin issues in dogs including itching and dandruff. However, there is a small percentage of pets that are extremely allergic to it. One of my dogs is deathly allergic to it, however I have seen tea tree oil based shampoos help so many pets. Oh, and I am a professional groomer:)
