Getting out pine sap?

1171 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Poly
So yesterday I was so proud of my little beast, I had sprained my ankle and wasn't able to do much with her, so she just went out back and took a nap under the pine trees and, so far as I was then aware, wasn't getting into any trouble....

When she came in I realized my mistake. She's covered in pine sap. My boyfriend tried scrubbing her with a rag and warm water and I just gave her a good bath, and she's better but still rather sticky in patches that just won't come out.

Does anyone have any tips for desapping a dog?

(She's in the longer end of short haired, and the sap is all the way to the skin so I'm afraid to try to cut any of it out)

Try olive oil. Oil the sap spots well, and work it off with your fingers.
Ha, I'm glad you were successful with that. Also works for road tar on their paws. And of course, olive oil is perfectly safe for them to ingest so you don't have to worry about them licking it.
