A dog parent recently discovered that her pet’s fur turned green overnight. Now, in a Twitter thread that is going viral, she has explained the reason behind it.

Astrobiologist and Professor Dr. Stephanie Olson found that her dog Olive’s fur turned green after he was fitted with a pet cone. The canine was recovering from surgery and the cone was supposed to collect her saliva.

Olson then came up with a conclusion that the bacteria in Olive’s saliva might have reacted with the low oxygenated environment in the dog’s neck folds, undergoing chemical changes, to give the canine’s neck a green colour.

The Astrobiologist, in a series of tweets, then explained that the process is nothing but similar to what happens when iron rusts, after leaving it unprotected and exposed to air.

While Olson might have come up with a conclusion, she is still unclear on how to remove the stain from Olive’s neck. She even asked her followers for suggestions on how to remove the stain safely.

Many took to the comment section, coming up with solutions to remove the stain. Others simply thanked the astrobiologist for the information she shared on her feed.
