Hi, yesterday evening I was sitting in a chair petting my father’s dog, when he told me that she, the dog, had earlier rolled in some flowers that had recently been sprayed to make them grow. I am not sure what kind of spray it was. But I immediately got up and washed my hands before sitting back down next to the dog, but I didn’t pet her again. Is there a danger I might have been affected by whatever was sprayed on the flowers?

You can be absolutely rest assured that such a very-very fleeting contact is not going to cause any systemic absorption of the spray .

It is almost third point of contact and that is not going to affect you in anyway.

Problem comes only with direct spray or inhalation of the chemical compound and not like an indirect contact like this.

Be rest assured!
