First, sprinkle shredded paper or torn bits of paper towel around the exposed glue area to prevent further entanglement. Next, gently massage a light coating of vegetable or mineral oil on and around the contact area. Gently and carefully remove the pet from the glue surface. Clean with soap and water. Finally, discard the used glue board or tray in a trash receptacle.
