Mike is working in the garage rebuilding his classic car. There are car parts and tools lying all over the place. Muffin, his daughter's snow white, very furry, American Eskimo dog, decides to investigate what's happening in the garage, and no one notices as she brushes up against several greasy engine parts. Now Muffin is covered in grease! This can be dangerous, because if Muffin tries to lick off the grease she could get very sick from toxic substances and grease may be flammable, making a grease and fur covered dog a walking fire hazard.
Dogs can get into all kinds of trouble and get covered in all kinds of noxious substances present in their environment, including being covered in grease. Whether your dog picks up grease in your home or on an excursion somewhere, you will want to get it off fast. Not only is it unsightly, and your dog can transfer it to you and your property such as vehicle upholstery or household furniture, but it can present a health hazard. Fortunately, there are several ways of de-greasing your furry friend.
Stayed with a friend for 2 weeks. got skin engrined with dirt by rubbing his bottom along the ground and also has black blobs around his anus and penis. Not sure what to use to get him clean.. He rolls around on dirty carpets too. So often gets grubby. he was adopted by us 3 years ago and is normal weight now but his hair is thin and we do give him hair vitamins etc. in his meals.
Hello Prof. Van Coops, your little Henry loves to roll - as most dogs do! First, you need to attend to the black blobs you describe on his hind end. Carefully cut the blobs off with scissors and then use a gentle veterinarian approved shampoo in the area, rinsing well. If Henry does not cooperate, I suggest enlisting the aid of a groomer who is used to working with small dogs. It sounds as though Henry may be the type of dog who needs a bath every few weeks so be sure to use a mild dog shampoo each time. And reward him with treats afterward for being a good boy!
