I SPENT AN EVENING WORKING IN MY YARD, AND A 2 DAYS LATER, MY LEFT ARM WAS COVERED WITH A RASH CAUSED BY POISON IVY FROM MY BACK FENCE LINE THAT I WASN'T AWARE WAS THERE TILL IT WAS TOO LATE. UNFORTUNATELY, WHILE I WAS TRIMMING ALL THE HONEY SUCKLE AND WEEDS THAT INCLUDED THE IVY, MY JACK RUSSELL WAS HAVING A BALL, JUMPING UP AND SNATCHING THE CLIPPINGS AND "KILLING THEM. ARE DOGS AND CATS AFFECTED THE SAME WAY HUMANS ARE BY POISON IVY/OAK OR DO THEY JUST CARRY THE OIL, CAUSING REINFECTION FOR THEIR OWNERS?
