Paint; disease of dogs (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

distemper

This clue is a double definition.

'paint' is the first definition.
(I know that distemper is a type of paint)

'disease of dogs' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

(Other definitions for distemper that I've seen before include "Paint - disease of animals" , "Kind of paint" , "Water-based paint" , "problem with dogs" , "bad state, being old" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
