To remove tar use mayonnaise or dawn dish soap.
Bathe them in selsun blue shampoo.
I hope they feel better very soon.
Best wishes for them

no, they don't have tar on them, neutrogena makes a shampoo called t/gel with has tar in it but it treats dermatitis and i was wondering if that was ok to use or if it would be toxic if they licked their skin after i bathed them with it.
Expert:  Terri Riba replied 6 years ago.
Yes you can use that shampoo safely. Just rinse well. I am so glad they do not have tar on them!

Best wishes for them,
Terri
