I use tea tree oil, diluted with olive oil when my dog gets a yeasty patch from not drying fully during the summer. Always worked great! My vet has never so much batted an eye at the idea and even said it was a good idea. I know not to let him eat it, and diluting it is very important. Straight tea tree oil is not good! Nor is tea tree oil good for cats. But diluted with a carrier oil, like olive oil, it can be used for many things.

The website you linked even says

As little as 7 drops of 100% oil has resulted in severe poisoning, and applications of 10-20 mls of 100% oil have resulted in poisoning and death in both dogs and cats
It has to be diluted with a carrier oil.
