It’s the middle of the night and you let your dog out for a pee break. Next thing you know, the smell of skunk has filled the backyard. Your dog comes running back to you with eau-de-skunk all over him. You will wish you were prepared before hand because all of the stores are closed. Check out the tool kit below and be sure to have these items in ready supply. Even better, keep them stored in a bucket so you can grab and go!
Following is a miracle skunk remedy to get that skunk spray out of your dog’s fur.
Skunk Spray Remedy Tool Kit
- 1 liter of hydrogen peroxide
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1 tsp liquid dish soap
- rubber gloves
- dog shampoo
DO NOT PRE-MIX the ingredients
I highly recommend having these items on hand in a bucket. That’s a much better plan than driving around town at 3am looking for these magical ingredients.
Lather and Rinse
- Mix the hydrogen, baking soda and dish soap into a paste
- Wearing gloves, lather this onto your dog (DO NOT GET SOLUTION INTO THEIR EYES), paying attention to where you dog has been sprayed.
- Wash with dog shampoo
- Towel dry
I have used this solution and it is magical. I have scooped the details for this page from the Human Society. For more details visit: https://www.humanesociety.org/resources/de-skunking-your-dog
