    Default Trapper has been painting

    Well it's more like he has been using his face as a paint brush - we have been doing some painting at home, and managed to keep Trapper and Bosco away, but somehow Trapper managed to escape and rub his face on our bright red door, so he now looks like he has been gorging himself on a dead animal

    It's gloss paint,so won't wash off. We would normally use something like white spirits to clean the paint off our own skin, but I'm not sure if that would be a good idea for a dog, especially as the paint is on the side of his muzzle between his nose and his mouth.
    Do you think I should just let it wear away naturally, or is there something else I can do -safely- to remove the paint?

    Shelter dogs aren't broken. They've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write. Do not pity a shelter dog. Adopt one.

    Awe...hahaha....Vincent Van Dog-h!!
    I honestly don't know what you could use to remove it "safely". It is so close to his sweet little eyes I would be afraid of anything harsh. Could call the Vet and ask them.

    He obviously decided to go one up on everyone else and become a QUAD COLOUR!!

    It's amazing how they seem to be into all sorts of mischief

    I found this:

    Work salad oil, petroleum jelly, or even peanut butter into the fur with your fingers to break down clumps of paint and then try pulling the paint out with your fingers. Remove excess oil with a paper towel.


    Wash your pet with dog or baby shampoo after removing the paint. This will remove any residue paint and oils from the fur to reduce irritation.


    Repeat as needed. If the paint is difficult to get out, as the fur begins to separate, the paint will loosen, but you will needed to repeat these steps until all paint has been removed to prevent your pet from trying to clean the paint themselves and ingesting it.


    Remove the piece of fur by shaving or trimming it off with scissors if the paint will not come out.


    Contact your veterinarian immediately if your dog has a reaction to the paint, has ingested paint, or if the paint covers sensitive parts of their body such as their eyes or inside their ears.




    ***Never use acetone, paint thinner, paint remover, or other chemicals as they can cause permanent liver and kidney damage and are extremely harmful to animals.***


    Difficult to cut with it being on his face and I think he would remove the peanut butter as fast as you could get it on!! I would go for vegetable oil or similar personally. Afterwards wash with a no tears formula baby shampoo in case it goes in his eyes

    HAHAHA! My dog did the same thing when we were painting our living room. Only he got the paint on his back. We just left it and eventually it came off on its own.

    Thanks for all that info Nicki. Most of the paint has disappeared now without me needing to use anything on it , there's just a touch of red left -enough to make it look like he's bleeding
    But he's ok!!
