Removing burrs, tree sap, gum. You’ll want to wear rubber gloves for this. Work vegetable oil or baby oil into the sticky, tangled areas of your pet’s coat to break up the gunk. This will make it easier to extricate the foreign matter without causing yelps or whimpers.
Cornstarch can also be used to de-gunk your pet. Pour a little on the problem area and patiently work it in, gently pulling the sticky stuff out as it releases from the fur.
Nonstop shedding. If your pet’s shedding seems to be year-round rather than seasonal, work a little lanolin (you can purchase liquid lanolin at Amazon.com) or olive oil into the animal’s coat every day. Within a few weeks, there should be a noticeable difference for the better.
