Not sure if anyone has seen this - I came across it on Staffy Central - very worrying.

'A member in Scotland has just come upon a case of a dog dying, apparently after licking its owner's leg not long after the owner had applied a cream to her leg.

The problem appears to be an ingredient called Calcipotriol which is a vitamin D analogue. It is used in ointments for eczema and psoriasis. This case suggests that it may be fatal to dogs in minute doses - even just one lick.

Until we hear any more, please pass this on as an alert for dog owners who have skin problems to check the ingredients of any creams they use.'

I have just checked too, I only use Nivea and Savlon, neither of which have it in, but Buddy is a sod for trying to lick my legs when I have put cream on.
