Skunk Home Remedy

It’s the middle of summer now and I’m sure everyone has smelled a skunk in the area this season. If you were unfortunate enough you have seen one and creeped back into the house as slowly as possible. Now what if your dog is outside and decides to give a good ole fashioned canine hello to Mr. Black and White? Then you’re probably hitting the Google Search Bar for some helpful tips. This is what we have found to work and what us at Penn Animal Hospital recommend.

Skunk Home Remedy

1. Bathe pet with a mixture of:
-1 quart (4 cups) of Hydrogen Peroxide
-1/4 Baking Soda
-1 Teaspoon Liquid Soap (Dawn)

2. Work mixture into fur (avoiding the eyes) and then rinse

Let us know how it goes! And may the odds be forever in your favor.
