Moderators: I wasn't sure where to place this, but I thought since I was asking about a safe "remedy" to my problem it might go here. If not, please accept my apologies and move it where it needs to be Our landlady recently built a huge gorgeous pine deck in the back of our building and we love it. However, the carpenters used untreated wood that is now oozing sap everywhere. Normally Hurricane stays away from the sap but today he went tearing up the stairs and around the corner right into a big puddle of it. One paw is covered completely on the bottom, its in between his toes, and he has since somehow managed get some one his shoulder. What is safe to use to get this nasty, sticky stuff out of his fur? I have tried just warm water and a towel, which didn't work at all. Soap doesn't seem to be affecting it at all either. Is Goo Gone safe to use on a dog? Any natural ideas? Thanks in advance!
