We all love our pets but I don't think we need worry about them being harmed by polly or whatever. Our homes are full of that stuff - can't get away from it. As for refinishing it... I don't think you'll get it clean because oak has that open deep pores and that stain is stuck down inside those open pores. In my experience, polly does not work well with oak. I'm sure somebody has a better or more technical explanation then I do, but I think it's the tannin in the oak that tends to peel it after a while. I'm thinking a spar varnish might be better.

That's my 2 cents and I'm willing to bet someone has better info then I do.
