If your dog gets sprayed by a skunk

Skunk spray can make your nostrils very angry, especially when it is sprayed onto your dog's coat! Throughout my years doing obedience training I have come across a few clients that had this problem. Here are a few tips to help you overcome this nuisance:

 

-First And Foremost Check to make sure that your dog isn't injured. If he is get him professional help at your vet's immediately and worry about the stink later.

 

-Skunk Spray Has An Oil Base

 

If you just douse your pooch in water chances are that the smell will spread all over him as opposed to the concentrated area that it was sprayed.

 

-Be Careful Around Your Dog's Eyes And Nose (These spots are tender as it is, so take care in not getting mixtures or commercial cleaners in the dog's eyes, etc.)

 

- Try Things You Have Handy To Remedy The Smell. Some swear by tomato juice. Some have told me that it just made their dog smell like skunky tomatoes. You can try it if you have it, but better yet, try this:

-ONE QUART OF 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

-1/4 CUP OF BAKING SODA

-1 TEASPOON OF GOOD DISH SOAP

Mix the mixture in a wash bucket so it doesn't overflow. It WILL fizz and build pressure, so don't put it in a spray bottle or any other closed container. Wash accordingly using a cloth to wash around eyes and nose. Rinse and repeat if desired.

 

COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS

If you have the time, you may try some of the commercial odor removing products on the market such as Natures Miracle - Earth Friendly.

 

Good luck and drop us a line if you find a new mixture that works so that we can share it with all of our visitors.
