Skunk Spray Antidote

Here is a Skunk Spray Antidote I got from Paul Krebaum

   In a plastic bucket, mix well the following ingredients:
   1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
   1/4 cup of baking soda
   1 to 2 teaspoons liquid soap

   for very large pets one quart of tepid tap water may be added to enable complete coverage.

   Wash pet promptly and thoroughly, work the solution deep into the fur. Let your nose guide you, leave the solution on about 5 minutes or until the odor is gone. Some heavily oiled areas may require a “rinse and repeat” washing.

  We’ve always used tomato juice… with just chihuahuas that need it, we don’t require but a small can. Tomato juice works pretty well… although just like someone hurting your feelings… there is still some lingering reminder even after you do all you can to remove the offense.


   Here’s some photos of our skunk on the porch… another skunk on the wall to remind the outdoors skunk to be nice…. and our Chihuahua Whitey in his tomato bath… he’s not too happy.
