My dog got sprayed by a skunk last night. My wife and I found the Peroxide-baking soda-dish soap recipe online and it worked very well. Less than 24 hrs later and he is back in the house and stink free.

I bought the "deskunk smell" shampoo made by Remington at Fleet farm, fairly cheap and did the job very well.

Mint mouth wash will knock it down about 90%.

Forget the tomato juice, you just get a red dog. Get the douche and a spray bottle, soak the dog down, this will kill the smell. It will not take it off of their collar. Then use the mixture below. I received that one from Tri Tronix and a DNR warden. If you live in the country or hunt your dogs a lot you might want to keep a supply of douche around. One of my dogs stays away from skunks the other looks for them. Good Luck

I've herd that vinegar douche works. Its a little embarrassing when you go to buy but just tell the cashier not to ask any questions.

Have'nt tryed it, if you have a car wash with a pet wash the de-skunk wash is suppose to work.

that works good. despite the fast reply's I was working in the tomato juice, let that soak for 4-5 minutes, and shampoo'd with flea /tick. . a fair improvement, but still, skunk is skunk. . Then I looked at reply's (thank you) Had the stuff, so back out in the sweltering heat all over again. and today misty blue's in the A/C with me.

I agree but it has to be dawn dish soap, I have tried 4-5 other brands and nothing works like dawn. Good luck

I've never had to deal with this issue, but I've heard tomato juice doesn't work.

I stole this from another site, and it had unanimous support. Others did mention it can dry out the dog's skin, so be conscious of that:

1 Qt 3% hydrogen peroxide 1/4 cup baking soda 1 tsp. liquid soap

All you need to do is wet down the dog with a hose, mix the ingredients together in a container, and then slowly pour the mixture over the dog while rubbing it into the fur. After the dog has been bathed in this solution rinse it down with the hose and the dog will be odor free. My dog weighed 90 lbs so I doubled the amounts shown above, but if you have a small to medium size animal, the recipe listed should do just fine.

Although the ingredients are not dangerous, care should obviously be taken to keep the solution out of your dog's eyes, ears and mouth. Also remember that hydrogen peroxide can bleach clothing and hair, however, my dog's fur never changed color or even faded.
