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!*

. . . using our finger tips dipped in a very small amount of pure olive oil, rub the fur very gently to remove the poplar buds and pine needles . . .
. . . then wash with pet shampoo and rinse well with clean water.
