My Dog Got Sprayed By A Skunk! What Do I Do?
The Worst of the Smelly Disasters…Your Dog Got Skunked
What Is That SMELL?
Tip you will thank me for…before bathing your skunked dog, change your clothes into something you can throw away without regrets, just in case!
IT'S SCIENCE SKUNK! RECIPE
- 1⁄4 cup of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of liquid soap (DAWN Dishwashing Liquid is our preferred soap)
- Quart of hydrogen peroxide.
- Work the solution into your dog’s coat well and rinse.
- Repeat as needed.
- Follow with a bath using DIRTY DIRRRTTY SHAMPOO or SOAP
DOUCHE DOG RECIPE
There is an alternate De-Skunking method, which uses any women's douche product. Massengill has been around forever, you can't go wrong with that one.
For dogs under 50 pounds mix two ounces of douche into one gallon of water. For dogs over 50 pounds use four ounces of douche in two gallons of water. Pour the concoction over your dog and saturate their coat thoroughly. Leave it on them for 15 minutes then rinse. Bathe in DIRTY DIRRRTTY DOG SHAMPOO or SOAP.
TIP: to keep your dog from shaking and saturating you with douchey-skunk-water hold onto their head. They have to shake their head to shake their body and this gives you a chance of not getting skunked by association.
