When I was with my grandmother, she always used sage, and I didn’t know how healthy it’s for the dog. But one of my friends who knows about sage, he said it’s good or bad for the dogs. Sage also is known as salvia, and it’s a herb and leaf using for medicine. Burning sage gives you lots of benefits like improve your mood, boost up the energy level, and treat minor illnesses. But those things are for the peoples, and you don’t know burning sage toxic to dogs.
How it’s affecting the Dogs?
Sage is non-toxic when it is food. But dogs sense of smell more than humans, and it’s 100 million greater than humans. It’s means burning sage could damage the sense of smell, and you probably need to protect their lounges. Also, Sage smoke could cause ear infection too. If your lovely pet has furry or big flappy ears, smoke can trap on their ears. Every dog is unique from other dogs, likely humans. Some dogs are enjoying it and chasing the smoke. Others become nervous and may fear for it. So carefully watch their reactions.

Like my grandmother, we can’t stop using sage because they didn’t allow us to do that and with lots of problems. So you can try different ways to solve that problem.
