Removing Tree Sap From Dogs Fur/Coat
Whenever we have a big storm here I lose a lot of pine branches from my trees. My one girl , Miya, always loves to lay out in the sun and ends up on top of these sap filled branches making a mess of her coat
There are a number of suggestions on the internet, most of which require bathing the area after removal of the sap:
Tree sap removal products : be very careful that the product you choose is safe for dogs or cats.
Here’s a better idea and one I have not tried yet, but recommended by a friend who has.
Flour or baby powder: massage into the sap with fingers and work in well to absorb the stickiness. Brush the area with a fine tooth comb.
No bathing needed!
Please post if you try this method and let me know how it works.
