How Do You Stop White Fur Going Yellow

HI

my border collie's white fur keeps getting a yellow tinge, even if I bath him. Can anyone explain why this happens?

depends where the staining is.

saliva staining can be a result of feeding and the ph of the saliva (sometimes a change of diet can make a big difference)

I was talkign to a samoyed owner/groomer the other day, and she told me of something they use routinely on sammy coats which seems to help - I am blowed if I can remember what she said it was - someone here might know (you can get it at shows). I will email a friend who was with me at the time - her memory is better than mine!

You can make up a weak boric acid solution to clean the affected area - powdered Boric acid is obtainable from old fashioned chemists.

hth a bit.

We used to use something on the horse's coats and legs to get rid of this but I can't remember what it was called - sorry! Maybe visit a horsey site and see what there is there? It's very safe too.

I use cowboy magic (detangler) on my fields' - if they are working one day and showing the next, it stops the burrs and things sticking....brilliant stuff.

They do have a product for 'white' too - but again my memory isnt what it was!

i use "white on white" shampoo but not all the time, it is purple/blue in the tube so dont be alarmed, also use bicarb of soda concentrated on beards,
if its the face making sure a fresh supply of water is always on hand it helps clean their beards

does your collie lay on straw at all?, thats notorious for staining white fur. Two pups I bought had pretty bad straw staining when they came here. My one white husky always seems to be immaculatly white no matter how filthy she gets working the day before. Self-cleaning dog I think

I recall using chalk powder a long time ago to keep a horses feathers white for shows. But I don't know how safe this would be around dogs.
