I just started using a stainless steel collar on Loki this weekend and it has started staining her fur. I just ordered one made out of curogan that shouldnt stain. In the mean time, does anyone have any ideas on getting the black stain out of her fur? Its not bad but her fur is so bright white you can notice it. And I'm anal.

Thanks

Thom

Oh, Kogeki, that leather one will probably stain her too, until some of the dye sinks in. Hopefully they can do something, other wise poor loki is going to have a red and black neck for a while, lol :lol:

Just a suggestion, it helped with the tear stains on Zack. Try to put some peroxide on the stains. I have no clue if it will work or not, but won't hurt to try! :?

I would try spraying some Oxyclean on the area (get the powder and add water - that way you can make it as consentrated as you need to) and dabbing with a clean cloth or paper towel to remove the staining. Then rinse with clean water once your done. Oxyclean is non-toxic and wonderful stuff - I used it on my white cat after she rubbed against a table DH was staining. I also use it on carpet stains and when I do laundry.

Otherwise, you can see about using some whitening shampoo or tear stain remover. Not sure how well either of those would work, cuz I have always used the Oxyclean.

Good luck, and I know how you feel - Im very anal about my white critters being clean. I hate it when they are dirty and dingy looking. :wink:

Even the Currogan collars are known to stain. It's really hard to avoid this problem.

You could try bathing Loki using a whitening shampoo. I get pretty good results with that.

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll try some peroxide, the shampoo we have does nothing. Her current leather collar stained her at first but I stayed on top of it and was able to keep her fur clean.

Lisa, is there any whitening shampoo that you recommend?

I know the curogan can stain too, but its less likely.

I went nuts on K9toolbox lastnight :p I got all kinds of cool stuff.

Cool, I'll check that out. So the Herm Sprenger's are less likely to stain even though they are the same metal?

Kogeki get the shampoo that gpes on blue and turns the fur very white! get at your local co op or pet store
Also get Brass fur saver or choker they do not stain white fur. Brass is a bit more expensive but they never stain in my experience

they say (not sure who "they" are tho :scratch: ) that alot depends on the dogs metabolism. some dogs stain worse than others for some reason. the curogan collars are great but if left on all the time they do seem to stain, tho not as badly as the regular chrome plated ones. the two i have i got a million years ago, they are supposedly german steel and they do not stain, ever, even after getting wet and being on forever. no rusting, no staining. let me tell you if i could figure out where rick got em from i could make a mint!
as for the shampoo... let me know when u pick it up, cause izzy needs a bath :laughing5: :laughing5:

Cowboy Magic, has the best whitening shampoo for horses. When you lather it up the whole horse is blue, its really funny, but when you wash it out, WOW :shock: Beautiful White!!!!

I should be good for dogs too, cause the horse I had, had really bad sensitive skin, and it was okay for him.

A second vote for Cowboy Magic!!! My friend has a paint with LOTS of chrome (as they say...) and she's just dazzling after a bath. Until she rolls, of course. :lol: :lol:
