I have a yellow lab that constantly gets tree sap in her hair. I can usually get the big chunks out with a comb, but there's always a residue that is left behind and collects dirt. She has sensitive skin. What can I use to remove it? Anyone?

Hi, use butter to bring it down. Gently try to comb it out or if necessary cut out what can't be combed out. My baby gets pitch in her feet hairs and is a real pain. I only use butter when it is time for her bath again. I will do the butter earlier in the day so I have time to work the pitch out and so that it is still early enough to bath her before the sun goes down. Hope this helps.

I was told by a groomer to use WD40, that it works wonderful just be sure you wash it off when finished so the dog won't lick it off.

I read the suggestions, grabbed my dog, olive oil & a comb. The dried sap was out in about 8 seconds! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I realize this is an old thread, but I want to thank you for your post. I read it and did just the same. I also had a bowl of warm water and Fairy - that is the equivalent of Dawn in Greece- ready to go along with some old rags which served as washing and drying cloths. My dog took his cleaning like he was having his weekly massage and is "all better" now!

Many thanks!

I built a cat run under pine trees that ooze sap after pruning. How can I get the sap out of the fur without having to shave the cats? Will the sap stop after a time?

Peanut butter is your best bet. Rub it all in the sap covered fur, then wash that out with Dawn dish soap. The fur should then be clean and soft, with no sap and no grease. Good luck!

I used a little bit of olive oil and rubbed it into the sap. It dissolved the sap in about a minute, and the vet said olive oil isn't toxic. Use a little warm water and Dawn dish detergent to clean it off.
