UPDATED: removing sticky gooey stuff from pet fur

in

our previous post

for removing sticky, gooey stuff

(think of the stuff from poplar, fir or pine trees)

from pet fur we recently asked several veterinarian clinics for advice and updated the information.

notable additions include NOT USING isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer and peanut butter because if your dog licks this stuff it may cause problems.*

*ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR VETERINARIAN FIRST!*
