dogDogs and cats frequently walk or they are leaned in places with wet paint or oil. Motor oil and wax are other pollutants common of the hair. 
 
Most of the derived products of the petroleum is absorbed by the skin, therefore, besides being horrible, the contamination can cause a dangerous intoxication. 
 
See as helping the animal: 
 
1 – with the use of rubber gloves put a small amount of solvent in a clean cloth and hold it on the paint so that her mollify and it can be removed. Avoid that the animal whips the area. 
 
2 – after the paint to be removed, wash the solvent immediately with soap and water. 
 
3 – other option is the use of flour and vegetable oil, for great polluted areas, but it takes time. Scrub great amount of vegetable oil and later remove with paper towel. Repeat several times until getting to remove the maximum of pollutant. Then the flour can be put to help in the absorption of the substance. 
 
4 – if the pollutant goes wax or paint latex, put ice, he will do with that the wax or the paint are brittle, could be peeled.
