My husband let our 2 tiger cats on the freshly sealcoated driveway and their paws are covered.
Is there anything, besides vegetable oil, to take it off?
What to expect if they lick themselves?
Thank you so much.
The vet should be able to clip off the hairy parts gently with clippers.
Most solvents are toxic; however, if you use a pine based solvent and rub gently with a pumice stone, than quickly wash the solvent off with shampoo and rinse completely, the solvent won't be on long enough to be toxic. It may take several washing treatments. Just be as gentle as you would with your own skin.
You may not be able to prevent them from licking, and the small amount that is licked off should not cause any problems. If it does, you will have to bring them to the vets for treatment. The taste may be enough to deter them, though.
