Be prepared and organized for the next time your pet is sprayed by a skunk
Our dog Cleo has been sprayed by a skunk numerous times. She obviously isn’t catching on to the whole avoidance thing. If you have had a skunk spray your pet you know it’s extremely nasty.
Thank goodness my sister shared an effective recipe for a skunk odor removal concoction before Cleo was sprayed the first time. I immediately purchased the ingredients.
We were organized and ready for a skunk “incident.” It sure beats frantically searching our house or shopping for the ingredients, late at night, while one of us holds the end of a leash strapped to our smelly dog. I think I would be the one volunteering to go to the store!
My kit contains the following:
Dawn dish soap
Directions: Fill a small bucket with warm water. Add a ½ box of baking soda, ½ bottle of hydrogen peroxide, and a squirt of Dawn. Mix together, wet your dog with the garden hose (avoid bringing the dog into your house), pour solution over dog, rub it in and rinse well. **Avoid the dogs eyes.
You may need more than one application.
You may also use this solution to wash the collar and leash.
I use the bucket as a container for all the ingredients and store it in a closet. Everyone in our family knows where to find it.
It’s amazing how well this simple solution works. Don’t wait until the day your dog is sprayed, put together a skunk kit ASAP.
If you have a dog, has it ever been sprayed by a skunk?
