Got Skunked?

If your dog is a curious one, chances are he/she will have an encounter with a skunk sooner or later. Although very smelly, being sprayed by a skunk is in no way harmful to a dog. It may even cause temporary blindness, but a quick flush of the eyes with water should eliminate that.


Here is a police dog handler's special formula for getting rid of that skunky smell:


1 QRT Hydrogen peroxide (3% solution)

2 TBSP Dawn liquid dish soap

1/4 CUP Baking soda


  • Mix well and use solution to shampoo dog. 

  • Be careful to avoid the eyes.

  • Rinse well.

  • Repeat
