The safest way is with dawn dish soap and you may have to do it two or 3 times to get it out.

Thanks to all who replied so quickly re diesel on my dog. My problem is that you must all be in America..I am in NZ. What is dawn dish soap? Anne

It is just a basic liquid dish soap. Make sure the soap is without additives, like bleach or ammonia. I couldn't find anything in New Zealand to recommend, mostly because Dawn has a "New Zealand Springs" scented soap right now. It is muddying up the search results.


If you go to the pet store and get a basic soap, it will do much the same thing.

Good luck!

Hello, I totally agree with Fuzzy. I have worked for a Veterinarian for over 27 years and that is what we used when there was an oil spill in the San Francisco Bay. We used it on all the sea birds, otters and any other mammals that were affected. You might have to do it a few times. Rinse the dawn off really well as the soap residue can cause a skin rash. Good luck. How did your dog get the fuel on him in the first place?

I was fueling my tractor and he got underneath. The jug was heavy and I missed the spout a couple of times. I'll try the Dawn.

As the wife of a trucker and the owner of 2 very inquisitive dogs, I've "been there, done that"!


Fuzzytufts has it right. 2, 3, or sometimes even 4 baths with Dawn dish soap and as warm water as your dog can handle is the best way. Diesel is much worse than regular gas or even oil. But once you've gotten all the diesel out of the dog's coat, be sure and put some softener (regular people hair conditioner, the kind that is rinsed out) on him/her, let it sit on him/her for about 5 minutes to soak into his/her skin some, then rinse him/her good. This'll help replenish some of the skin oils that were taken out with all the washings.

Be sure and wash around her eyes really well with a soapy wash cloth and rinse good, also in and around her ears and butt too.

Also, be sure it's Dawn, and not another brand. There is something in Dawn that is better than any other brand on cutting through grease and oil, and diesel too.

Yes you should do it with hot water that would not harm skin and you have to do it three times one fater the other regularly with a medium or medium high power detegent soap or shapoo or dish washer but perfectly rubbing each part you can also do it for five tme also but after thar you have to dry your dog

You can give bath your dog by any type medium power detergent or human shampoo or bathing shop or soap used for wash clothes or utensils


But you to do it for at least three time not with warmer water but with hot water that of that temperature that would not harm your skin or dog skin you can do it by touching

I want say that my dog was having insects which are normally or street dog so no medicine was working so i used diesel than they all died

To bhai baat aisi ki garam paani tha nahi pehle shampoo se nehlaya phir kaleeli aur cheechdi maarne ki dawai laga di lekin usse baat pehle bhi nahi bani thi ab bhi nahi bani
Phir maine daal diya uski poori body par deisel ek muggha thoda thoda karke

Ab wo chootna mushkil tha
Phir nehlaya tide sarf se teen baar lekin diesel nahi chhoota
Wo garam paani nahi tha

Ab kutte ki kaleeli to mar gayi lekin ab diesel lage hi soye ga ab kal nehlaunga garam paani se ab shaam ho gyi thi

To baat ye h ki raat me nuksaan na de jae kyuki wo dawai bhi na chooti hogi diesel ki wajah se


To baat ye ki itni gaatha befizool me hi na likhi maine karke dekha h phir mujhe pata chala lekin kisi aur k saath na ho is wajah se apna experice share kar diya

Lekin abhi tak kutta sahi h pehle se aaram me h kyuki kaleeli mar gyi na

To ek baat aur bata du

Deisel se tatyiya hoti h peele rang ki honey bee ki tarah uske chhatee par spray kar ke delhna sab mar jarngi is wajah se diesel use kara tha aur body k har hisse tak pahucha kar achchhi yarah se rub kara tha bhai

Ab itni akal hoti to sab me h ki aisi sitution me kya karna chahiye

Mere papa to farmer h is wajah se mujhe saari cheejo ka experience h

Ab jyada tar angrej hi padhenge

Or ye kisi ko samajh bhi na aayegi

Kyuki apne wale to khud hi dimaak lada te wo search surch na karte google par
