I would like to add borax to my pool but afraid it might hurt my dog. I have a 2 year old golden retriever and I can't keep her out of the pool without keeping her in a kennel all day. She is always drinking from the pool even though I keep a fresh water bowl out for her. I have also considered adding salt to soften the water, but not sure about it for the same reason. I am currently using bleach as my sanitizer. Does anyone have borax and dogs?
