My dog had stepped in a big pile of sap/pitch and it covered her whole left back foot. I read somewhere where butter would help. I tried a stick of butter and it was working but not as quickly as I would have like. I then tried olive oil and I rubbed it in her paw between the pads and it literally melted away. She had sticks and rocks embedded in between her pads. Poor girl.

I have used butter in the past, but decided to try spray cooking oil. It is less of a mess. Just spray on the paws and wipe off with a paper towel. Not only less mess but less licking :)

My dog stepped in pine tree sap. It's stuck in the fur between his toes. The area is too small to cut with a scissors. How can I remove the sap safely?

I just had the lower branches of my 2 pine trees removed and while they look great, the sap from the trees is causing havoc. My little Shih-Poo, Yogi now loves to sit under the trees but has sap on his back, the pads of his feet, and his tail. He just had a haircut, so I can't cut the sap off of his fur.
