My dog got sprayed by a skunk and I was wondering what people use to get rid of the stink. I tried the hydrogen peroxide, baking powder and dish soap recipe but some odor is still present. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I have never had the pleasure of dealing with this problem but I have had friends who have and this seems to be the best way to clean the dog of the smell: Make a slurry of baking soda and Dawn dish soap (you'll need a lot of both, soda and soap), the soda absorbs the smell and dawn dish soap brakes down the oils in the spray, so the soda can than pick it up.

Time is the most helpful, 10 days most should be gone. Yes, give a few baths along the way.

While at it, use your 17 HMR on that skunk.

The mixture you tried is the only one I have used. May have to do it over. Mine got it point blank first time and she was in the house that night with no issues.

A couple quarts of lemon juice worked great on my golden retriever. I tried a commercial skunk scent remover with no results. I'm not sure if it made a difference but I took him to a lake, had him swim for a bit, soaked him with one qt of lemon juice, had him swim again, soaked him with the second qt and had him swim again. Smell was gone and stayed gone.
