De-Skunking a dog
dog got sprayed by a skunk? here is a good recipe: 1 qt hydrogen peroxide 1/4 cup baking soda 2 teaspoons liquid soap combine ingredients in a plastic container. needs to be used right away. do not store. if the dog was sprayed in the face place some mineral oil or an eye lubricant as this solution will sting eyes, nose & mouth. the sooner you bathe your pup the better the outcome. massage into the DRY coat not wet and leave on for 5-10 min. i ve never heard of this completely working the first time as skunkys are funky and their oily spray contains sulfur, so you prob will need to repeat. again be careful of the eyes when washing the face and rinse well ..
