Tomato Juice to the Rescue!~! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

Last night my precious pooch was sprayed by a skunk. (can you say eewwwwwww!!)

Fortunatly we had tomato sauce (but I did not have any tomato juice) which we dilluted & yes it really worked.

I am definately adding tomato juice to my prep list.

I read that white vinegar dilluted with water also works to get rid of that distinct odor. (keep it out of your pets eyes)

Does anyone out there know if this works?

Any other creative alternatives?

There is a better solution to your skunk problem: 1 pint hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1tsp liquid dish detergent. Mix up the stuff and sponge it on the pup. Of course, avoid getting it in his eyes. You will want to rinse him off when you are done, but it works great

Tomato juice will work also, but then your chili has a strange taste. :-)

Tomato juice is the cheap way to go. If you don't use on dog you can drink it. Works just fine, unless your dog is white. If so the pink color will go away, I think.

For white dogs, Crest toothpaste works well. I have a white dog, she met a skunk, I used tomato juice, I had an orange dog, for a long time. Another friend with a white dog used crest, or maybe it was aquafresh very successfully.

By the way, don't forget to store sensitive version of toothpaste for your teeth in case some dental problem comes will help mitigate minor discomforts. Use the regular toothpaste you have already stored on the dog.
