She got tar on her paws. I stupidly tried to clean it with mineral spirits. I immediately put her in the tub with Dawn and sensetive dog shampoo. I washed her in the tub. Now she's acting funny. She's always acts crazy when she gets out of the bath but this is more so

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb.

I recently came online and see that your question about Deuce hasn't been answered. I'm so sorry that you've had to wait for a response, but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.

I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. Can you look at her feet and tell me if they look red or irritated?

2. Can you describe in more detail how she's behaving?

Since it looks as if you are currently offline, there may be a delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you and I may be offline at the time you respond. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can since I'm on the computer some part of every day.
Thanks for your patience. Deb
