Sap Removal


Recommended Posts

Any suggestions as to the best way to remove tree sap from doggy fur? My boy is a sticky mess - I even had a difficult time getting the stuff off of my own hands. I recall using baby oil once to remove tar that got on my feet at the beach, but wonder if it is safe to use on dogs.

Anything oily will help cut the goo. You can use olive oil, cooking oil, etc., and they'll all be safe for your boy. Apply a bit of oil, rub it in to a section of fur, then rub the fur between your fingers cushioned with a paper towel to get oil and goo off.

 

Good luck.

Baby oil should be fine.

All good suggestions - and greatly appreciated!
