Forget tomato juice, expensive pet store skunk wash! Here’s an easy formula for a fast-acting and effective de-skunking wash.
You will be able to find pretty much all of the ingredients in the home. The last thing you want to do when you have a skunked dog is to have to drive out and hunt for a wash.
This mix does create a big fizz fast so work quickly. Best to have your dog in the tub and mix the ingredients right near where you intend to wash the dog. The mix’s power is the oxygen – neutralizing the yucky, yucky smell.
1 quart (2 cups) of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 cup of Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Liquid Soap
Mix the ingredients and apply it onto the skunked pet immediately.
Rinse thoroughly with water
Smell the difference? Aaaah.
