We all know that sometimes dogs get into things they shouldn’t and more often than we like it also involves an angry/threatened skunk.
Our tried and true recommendation in that scenario is to use Krebaum’s Formula.
You can also get the shortcut to it on our webpage here: http://www.lakesveterinaryhospital.com/frequent-questions.html
Otherwise it is here:
1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (Make sure it is not expired)
1/4 Cup Baking Soda
1 teaspoon liquid dishsoap (Dawn works the best)
Mix in a bucket and sponge over entire area taking care NOT to get in/near eyes/nose or mouth. Leave on for 10 minutes. Follow with a thorough tap water rinse. May need to repeat.
In addition to bathing your pet with this recipe we also really like:
Lisa taught me something years ago when my pet was sprayed by a skunk at close range (I nearly lost my morning coffee and did lose my breath it was so bad). Take a dish of vanilla and set it in your home, car wherever the horrendous smell has infiltrated to help take it away. When our dog was sprayed it was near our garage and it made it’s way into the garage and our vehicles. Not pleasant. We used her trick and within about 24 hours I could drive my car without suffocating on the angry skunk odor.
As always thank you for reading!
