My daughter put her 6 month old dog in her jacuzzi tub. I am worried about this. She plans on ding this again. I don't think this is a good idea. Please help me.

Is it a jacuzzi like a hot tub or a bath tub? If it is just a bath tub then it is fine for baths but she should not be putting her dog in a hot tub! Animals have different sensitivities to temperature and some of the chemicals in hot tubs so this is a very very bad idea!
