Wink SKUNKED!! I know I am not alone

Lastnight my dog got skunked! I am not sure he got hit directly but he sure does smell as does my back entry. Anyone have any good solutions?

I've heard the most effective product to use is douche. I do think it takes several baths, though, before the odor is totally gone. Not sure what to do about the back entry?

I have always heard a bath with tomato juice is the best. But have never known how practical that really is to do!!

When our spaniel was a pup, he tried to make friends with a skunk. I used 4 large cans of tomato juice on him, then two washes with dawn dish detergent followed by a final rinse. I did this outside using three galvanized tubs. It removed enough of the smell that he was allowed back in the house after him dried off.

No suggestions... just lots of memories of our dog and skunk various encounters. Hope you find something that works.

​There is a recipe on Google but I think it is 1/2 quart of hydrogen peroxide, 1/8 cup of baking soda and 1 tsp. dish soap. You mix it up, don gloves and work it into the animals coat right to the skin. If you have a long hair dog I think you would need to double the recipe?

I get a bowl,put soda in a gob,add a big squirt of Dawn dish soap,and pour in enough peroxide to make a slurry. I get my doggie all wet,pour and massage this stuff on her fur,rinse, and voila! I hope your beast learns to avoid the skunks. It took about 4 episodes,before she finally connected the dots and now avoids the problem.
