The dog nailed a baby skunk


Recommended Posts

The dog nailed a baby skunk in a flower bed earlier.  

One minute the dog is by me, the next he has pounced on something in a flower bed.  He bit its head right through the skull killing it instantly.

At first I thought - doesn't smell too bad so maybe only adults can spray - and then it hit me.

Truly noxious - orders of magnitude greater than driving over a dead one with the car.

Had to wash the dog with water and peroxide to rid it from the stench which works actually.

The dog didn't like it but I liked his stench even less so 'bath time' it was.

Definitely sucks!!! My dog got sprayed and made it back into the house to spread that glorious stench. We also did the peroxide, water and dish soap and it helped a lot but the stench lingered for weeks!!

There  is a product called pure ayre. It is 100% natural so it can be sprayed on the face even. And no issues if the dog got it in his mouth.  I have seen it used by groomers on about 50 dogs when I was in the pet industry. That stuff works well. As long as they haven't changed the formulation in the last 5-6 years.

Been in the same situation a few times.  Vinegar bath, then work  baking soda into the hair with a little water to make it a paste.  Let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing and a final bath with dawn followed by a fragrant conditioner.
