    Dogs Sprayed by a Skunk


    Funny story, actually, not so funny!

    So, this morning, I get up with my wife to send her off on a four day trip.
    She got up about 4 and got ready, I got up about 4:30 to see her off.
    I helped her grab a few items around the house and she was headed for the door.
    I went to hold the door open and thought it would be a good idea to let the dogs out.
    As soon as the dogs hit the doorway, they caught a scent and were off running and barking for the corner of the fenced yard.
    This is not an unusual event.
    As soon as I turn around to go inside, I catch a wiff of the horrible odor.
    It was the strongest onion smell ever.
    The next thing I know, I have two dogs rubbing their eyes and super stinky.


    I guess I found out what skunk smells like at ground zero, didn't smell like skunk, it smelled like a potent onion.



    I threw the dogs in the garage and went down to Walgreens (thank gawd for 24 hrs).
    I checked online and called a 24 hours vet hospital, all came up with the same solution/concoction:

    One quart of hydrogen peroxide
    1/4 cup of baking soda
    two tablespoons of dish soap.

    I came home mixed it up in a bucket.
    It works as a shampoo.
    I also found a good idea online to use a sponge to apply it.
    I took the sponge and bucket out to the back yard and applied the solution to the dogs.
    I let it soak in while I got the hose.
    I came back and sprayed them down with the cold water.
    I wish it would have been warmer.
    They didn't like any of it.
    What a horrible morning for the poor dogs!

    Just from having the back door open when it happened, the house reeks.

    It is now 2.5 hours later, I am going to go back to sleep.

    The dogs don't smell like skunk anymore, or at the very least, they reek less than the house does.
    I dowsed the house with Frebreeze and it helped out some.

    I hope this is somewhat educational if this ever happens to you.
    Anyone have an experience like this?
    Please share!

    Used to happen to my grandpas dogs all the time in southern Missouri. That is the solution he used. It smells god awful doesnt it?! I got sprayed myself when I was a 16, walking to the Black River from my gramps house, I had a hard time convincing him to let me in to take a shower.....

    What a terrible morning for the dogs and for you.

    Efficient work you did there though, I'm impressed by the effort.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    LOL, the smell probably didn't go away, you are probably just used to it.

    The bath mixture works well.

    16 hrs later, the house still smells.
    I wouldn't have thought the house would smell worse than the dogs.
    The dogs are fine after their bath.
    The are a couple spots on the dogs that have a bit of a skunk smell to them.
    The house is worse.
    They never even got in the house to rub it onto anything.
    It just wafted in through the windows and the door.

    I know better next time I guess.

    This recipe works like a charm! We have a group of hunters from WI that hunt up here on out land every year. For 3-4 years in a row their dogs got sprayed, and it worked every time! We keep a good supply of the ingredients on stock, needless to say, haha. That sucks that your day had to start out like that, SIA! Glad you shared the instructions for others though.

    I was at the lake once, and my friends dog got hit. It was horrible. It happened right as we got there too. I think we tomato sauced him. He had to sleep outside that night.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I know one of the sites I found the recipe on said not to store it.
    I don't know why exactly but I thought I would throw that out there.

    They are getting stinky again,
    I think I have to redo the bath.
    I need to mix up another batch.
