Not exactly what I felt like doing at 10 o'clock on a Wednesday night, but, when is it ever a good time for your dog to get tagged by a skinky mustelid?
Last time one of my dogs got sprayed, it took days of shampooing with so-called "skunk shampoo" from the pet store before she smelled any kind of normal again. Today, after a good scrub down on the porch and a follow-up with his regular coconut shampoo, he's lying in his bed in front of the tv, and you'd never know anything funky had happened.
best part, I had all the stuff in my kitchen cupboard!
Here it is, hope you never have to use it!
Homemade Skunk Rinse For Dogs:
4 cups hydrogen peroxide
1 cup baking soda
squirt of dishwashing liquid
Mix in a pail of warm water, scrub dog down using the whole pail, then rinse.
I followed up with a regular shampoo and rinse, but you might not find that necessary.
