Guys my dog dog just got hit with a skunk and she is covered! What can I do to get rid of this, dose the tomato juice really work? Any help is appreciated!
I did this and it worked wonders! And thy for your help! And thanks 2 every 1 for their responses I'm going to to the Summers Eve tomorrow just for the hell of it lol and hopefully get rid of the rest of the odor!i'd got with this( i heard it can bleach fur dont know for sure never had a problem with a skunk but the fiancee has)
"1 gallon water
1 quart hydrogen peroxide ~3% solution
1 cup baking soda
1 good squirt of hand or dish soap (preferably dawn dish soap)"
same as your just up the baking soda a little bit. baking soda works wonders for any smell...
"The mixture will fizz. Use a sponge and lather it into the fur/skin taking care to avoid the ears and eyes. Let it sit for 10 minutes, rinse and repeat.You need to repeat this a few times but remember to let the dog do its thing for about 20 min break mainly for the skin and for the doggies that don't like baths.
I used this on Keesha and the smell after one bath was actually quite tolerable then after 3 baths you could barely smell it after you get to the point where you can barely smell it go ahead and give the dog one last bath with its normal shampoo and this time if you don't use conditioner use it trust me the fur and skin will need the hydration.Use about a hand full wait 5 minutes the wash most of it off leave just a little bit on the fur it will give added smell good stuff to help mask the possible odor still on the dog plus it will hydrate the skin and full because baking soda and hydrogen peroxide can leave it dry and it could possibly cause dandruff."

some people say orange baths and soda baths but its hear say
