    Default Removing ointment gooey ick?

    Last week, Willie got his leg through a wire fence, resulting in gnarly wire cuts down his back legs. A week later, after antibiotics and such, they're starting to look better. However, the ointment (Corona) has icked up his leg. He's not thrilled about me doing anything to it, either, so I can't really scrub on it. Suggestions on how to get rid of it?

    I've had decent success with liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Gently rub the detergent into the ointment areas, leave on a few minutes, then rinse. Really gooey areas might take two or three rounds.
