Dog got sprayed by a skunk

11 posts in this topic

Well I was out coon hunting last night, and I noticed the dog was doing weird stuff, I started going to her and could smell skunk, I figured she got sprayed, and she did. I have a couple questions, what is the best way to wash it off of her, tomato soup?

Another question, I hunted her for awhile afterwards but she didnt do well, I am assuming after she got sprayed it must have messed up her nose. After washing her will she be back to normal right away?

This recipe works for skunk deodorizer for dogs :

Mix this up and wash dog well , then rinse well and your puppy will be a happy dog again.

Here ya go and by the way tomato products do not work well at all.

First and foremost, never wet your dog down first before using this formula. To make this skunk solution you will need: 1- bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide 3%, ¾ box of Baking soda, 1 cup of dish soap, (Dawn, Palmolive). You will also need an empty dish detergent bottle to mix the ingredient together in, it will also make it easier to apply to your dog. Mix all three ingredients together well. Apply the mixture to your dog liberally. Be careful not to get the mixture into your dog’s eyes or mouth. Baking soda can be harmful if swallowed and peroxide can be dangerous to the eyes. Use a face cloth to apply the mixture to your dogs face. Rub the mixture into your dog’s skin and coat. Make sure to completely saturate your dog in the mixture. Let the mixture sit on your dog for about 5 min. Rinse thoroughly starting with the head and face. Lift your dogs head to make sure the mixture runs away from the eyes and mouth. It is always easier if you have an extra set of hands. Towel dry. This mixture has been proven to work if you follow the instructions.

We use this formula for our hunting dogs and it works better than anything.

You will love this one. I was talking to a hunter a few weeks ago and he said his dog has gotten into fights several times with skunks. He swears by "Summer Breeze" dush, the product for women. He carries bottles of it with him in his truck. He claimed to have used it several times. His only issues is he felt stupid buying it at the store.

Most vet's sell a shampoo called Thiotrol, about 10.00 a bottle but well worth it, Neutralizes odor and can also be used on clothes and bedding. Buy two, one for now and the other one for next time.

That's funny.

I used the mixture on my last dog and it worked well to get rid of the smell. I did notice that when the dog got wet it still had the smell. This was awesome because I had to leave him at my ex's house when I was looking for a new place to live, one more thing for her to whine about.

Anybody else notice this (smell, not the whining).

I can say after washing my dog in this solution, I can still smell it, but it is tolerable.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".

    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
    • I've fished it once about 10yrs ago Ice fishing from fishermans wharf....caught one perch in 3 days.   I was thinking about trying the lake once again with my wheel house..but it looks to be shut down. I talked to a guy from the Mille lacs area last winter at upper red, and he said the lake was great and it was the best he'd had for large fish ever on the lake.   I did did some reading and seen quite a few different views. The one I found most compelling and seemed to make the most sense after reading and looking at data was the view of a walleye population being mismanaged with slots, allowing for way to many large fish that have basicly eaten themselves out of food with the baitfish they prey on. Which in turn turned them into predators of their own young walleye. Hence the collapse of the walleye.
