Soap in dog's eye

Soap in dog's eye, or Soap for dogs, also known as Aqueous Lanthanum, is a product marketed as a shampoo for cleaning the skin of dogs. It is advertised as an effective and safe alternative to using chemicals such as peroxide, ammonia or chlorinated water. It also clms to prevent hr loss, and clms to stimulate the hr follicle.

In the United States the Food and Drug Administration has received complnts that Soap in Dog's Eye is a health hazard, and the product is not approved as a dog shampoo. Soap in Dog's Eye is banned in some states in the U.S. because of this and many manufacturers of Soap in Dog's Eye have stopped selling the product.

Chemical ingredients and manufacture

Soap in Dog's Eye is sold in a plastic tube measuring 5.6 inches by 4.4 inches, with 12 oz of liquid and a nozzle attached that allows it to be sprayed out of the tube. It is sold in some pet shops, and is also avlable over the Internet and at some veterinary clinics.

The plastic tube is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC). PVC is one of the most common plastics, and most of the plastic we use today comes from PVC.

According to the package, the Soap in Dog's Eye contns:

"Aqueous Lanthanum Oxide, (LAO) — This is a form of Lanthanum Oxide that is hydrated, in which water molecules are attached to it. It is not a crystalline substance as other Lanthanum Oxide substances like Lanthanum Carbonate."

"Polyethylene glycol (PEG) - PEG is a polymer of ethylene glycol. It is classified as a hydrophilic compound. It is used to d in keeping liquids dispersed, it is used to thicken liquids, stabilize the viscosity of liquids, and in the formation of emulsions."

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, a mild anionic surfactant.

Triethanolamine, a pH regulator and emulsifier.

Sodium hydroxide, a chelating agent, which helps to clean dirt, soaps and salts from the dog's eye.

Calcium and zinc Lactates, which are natural chelating agents.


There are 3 essential elements that can help keep a dog's eye clean:


Hydrophilic agents (like soap and PEG).

Salts and chelating agents (like the calcium and zinc lactates).

Most chemicals used to wash a dog's eyes contn water-soluble ingredients. Soap in Dog's Eye is similar to other products that are labeled as "eye wash". These other products contn sodium bicarbonate, glycerin, and sodium hydroxide. The difference between the products is in the concentration of these chemicals in each product. The higher the concentration of sodium bicarbonate, glycerin, and sodium hydroxide, the more likely that chemical can cause irritation to the dog's eyes. This is why you should avoid using soap in Dog's Eye because it contns a high amount of sodium hydroxide. It's important to use soap with a lathering action on the dog's eyes to wash off the dirty eye particles. However, because soap is not a good solution for long-term cleansing, it's best to only wash the eyes of the dog on a very occasional basis.
