Default Husky's fur is stained

I'm hoping SOMEONE can help me. My husky, while playing at my neighbors, got into oil or grease, or both, in their garage. Now her front paws and chest are stained black. I washed her twice last night and I can't get the coloring to go away. Does anyone have any suggestions...should I cut the hair or use a special soap?

Ok, I have never tried this stuff, but you an use it on your pets, so it may be worth a shot before you cut her beautiful coat.

also, you may try Dawn dish detergent, but read on it first to make sure it is animal safe. Also you can try baby powder, but I have no idea how well it would work on fur.

By the way, I noticed it was referred to as "bogo" at some spots, and I just want you to know that has nothing to do with my name on this forum. Bogo is the first part of my husband's last name and love is the first part of my maiden last name. So, don't worry, I don't sell the stuff or anything, it just looked like it may be useful.

when I worked at the groomer's we used Dawn on the dogs that came in that got into oil and on cocker spanials' ears. It's the best thing for that kind of heavy oil and it's a lot safer than running the risk of the dog ingesting grease.

Thanks! I'll try what you guys have suggested. I noticed that the staining came right off my pit/bulldog puppy (but he's red so it was a lot harder to notice on him anyway).

yeah, the dawn worked REALLY good. I was afraid I would have to cut her fur to get it to come off. Then I noticed that it would of had to of been shaved completely because the black went all the way down tot the root of the hair basically. She's all better now, nice and clean.

You can try washing your dog with dish washing soap. When yorkies show their dogs they will put oil on their hair to make it shinny so I read it somewhere that they use dish washing soap to remove the grease. Hope this will work

Glad you found the answer. There is also a comercial product available meant for removing grease and oil from pet coats. When I see the bottle again I will write the name down and see where it can be purchased for later reference.
