My Golden/Lab mix spent the weekend playing with a 10 month old English Bulldog. Normally his neck is just wet from them play biting, but this time he has a weird patch of hair. It looks like there is hair gel in it and when it is dry, it is hard like hair gel, but when it is wet, it is almost slimy and does't want to come out. I gave him a bath with an oatmeal based shampoo but that didn't seem to do much. I'm thinking I should just cut the patch of hair off. Any hear of anything like this and have any results in removing it? Thank you!
