Skunk smell.

FYI, Allie was sprayed by skunk today. The tomatoe juice did not work. So we used peroxide 3% (1 quart), 1/2 box of baking soda, and some dish soap. She smells good. I very gently used it around her snout. Rinsed well with warm water. What a crazy weekend!
P.S , The emergency kit came in handy!

I've heard that this is the only real solution to skunk spray. I've (luckily...knock on wood) never had to use it, but I've been told it works best when applied to a dry coat. If you wet them down first it spreads the oil based skunk spray.
I used that same recipe on a rescue dog who came to us smelling of skunk. Seemed to work well. Warning - it stings.
