While I have been lucky and not had any of my collies sprayed by a skunk I have had other dogs sprayed in the past and I sure wish I had this homemade concoction to help remove the smell. A wonderful and kind woman I work with gave me this recipe after her dog tangled with a skunk last night and she swears that it worked immediately in removing the smell.
One word of advice, the mixture of these compounds has to be done just before you use it for if you try to store it it will blow a sealed bottle apart for the ingredients do cause a fizzing reaction like a soda pop. So, do not make until you need!
Now remember you have to bathe your dog in this so you will need big bottles of each ingredient which is safe to store separately in your home and in fact you probably already have it on hand;
NINA’S SKUNK REMOVAL AND PET SCENT REMOVAL FORMULA
3/4 of the mixture Peroxide
1/4 of the mixture Baking Soda
1 Bottle Dish Soap (this is to cut the skunk oils so Dawn might be your best bet)
Mix well and bathe your dog in it rubbing it in good. Then thoroughly rinse. Now, this will cut the natural oils in your pet’s hair so I would recommend that you use some sort of oiled brush or comb when you brush them out afterward or you may develop really dry skin temporarily.
I hope this helps and let us know if it works for you too for my friend swears by it and I know if she swears by it it works! Thank you to my friend for telling me about this!
Of course, the best bet is to keep your dog away from a skunk, but that is easier said than done!
