skunk-and-dogIf your pet gets involved with a skunk in your neighborhood, it’s not to notice what has occurred.  The odor can linger up to a month. There are some commercial pet stain and odor removers available at pet stores.  Here’s a reliable home solution.

  • One cup of water
  • One half cup of baking soda
  • One teaspoon of liquid dishwashing soap
  • One quart of hydrogen peroxide

Mix together and work this solution deep into your pets coat and then rinse thoroughly. Make sure that you keep the solution out of your pets eyes, nose and mouth. Another problem with your pet getting sprayed by a skunk is that it can throw off your pet’s sense of smell.  This may affect their appetite, especially in cats. Adding water or heating your pets food make increase it’s appeal.
