    This past weekend my dog was sprayed by a skunk Do any of you know how to get the smell off our dog? It has been 3 days and she still smells bad. We did tomatoe sauce and the baking soda,dish soap and peroxide solution. Will the smell wear off on its own? Thanks, Lisa

    What has worked for us here in NJ is equal parts of
    Baking soda, white vinegar and club soda. Then wash dog with doggie shampoo.Good luck

    Our dog got sprayed a couple of years ago although it wasn't close contact she smelled bad!!

    I used Avons bubble bath and it took the odor away.

    It's also good to use as a general household cleaner.

    Good luck

    No Tomato Juice!!!
    No Lysol!!!

    First, isolate the sprayed area...Usually between the eyes, top of head or shoulder areas...You must find the exact area sprayed, it's never that large...

    DAWN dish liquid first to break down the 'oil'...Then you could use a fresh smelling scented douche OR a mixture of vinegar and water (but that doesn't smell very good)

    Rinse well...

    Once you believe you have taken the proper steps to deodorize, you must DRY completely or the scent will remain.

    Depending on the access of the area, if it can be gotten to without harming the eyes, two washings should do it...

    As a groomer, all of my dogs were done well enough to control the odor on the first cleaning but as soon as they got wet while swimming or in the rain, the smell returns (less potent each time tho)

    If he/she was wearing a collar, examine that carefully, could be in there too...Nylon and leather will not wash completely clean so might as well get a new one...

    But please don't use tomato juice (myth) and no lysol ever.
    The root of the smell is in the oil and needs to be dealt with properly...Try the above and let me know how you do.

    Good Luck

    Tomatoe Juice is what I've always been told.
    I hope shes a little dog or that could cost a pretty penny
  12. Try massengil douche, bathe the dog and then rinse him off well and the final rinse should be the douche. Best of luck.
