it's stuck to his fur and skin, covered in gravel an rock solid. god knows how he's managed that... he's small enogh to fit in the freezer but i don't think he would like it there;) any ideas please as i don't fancy a trip to the vet again.
Does rubbing mayonnaise work? I think that was in the Simpsons. Poor wee doggy.
My dog stepped on chewing gum and then on some stones. I had to pull the fur away from his skin and cut it off a little at a time. Could you try rubbing an ice cube on it and break bits of the chewing gum off as it freezes?
Ds has told me it is peanut butter that they use on the Simpsons, mayo is for nits!
Can you not get scissors between the hair and skin? Don't try and close them, just use the blade to try and cut the hair
Mayonnaise OR peanut butter will work, it's the oil content. Baby oil also works.
thanks for the help. he would eat peanutbutter faster than i could rub it in. will try ice cubes but don't want to pull too much as it's on his tummy
can't use scissors as it's actually stuck to his skin as well as his hair.
Try warm (ideally hot, but you don't want to scald the dog) vinegar and an old toothbrush. It works a treat on fabric even for fairly ground-in gum and I can't see why it wouldn't work on the dog.
Poor dog being covered in condiments and snack food. I hate chewing gum.
he's used to beeing covered in food, we have a 2 yr old DD... quite enjoys a late night snack as well
Maybe you can put some food on his leg for him to lick while you work on the chewing gum area?
