Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

Latex paint is most often non-toxic to people and to pets. That said, it would be wise to keep him from ingesting it. If you are able, wash it off with soap and water from the areas that have paint on them. You can do this with a wet wash cloth with soap and spot cleaning, if he doesn't have many soiled areas.

Please let me know if I can help further.
