No Skunks Allowed - Home Remedy Dog Deskunk Recipe

Beautiful Spring has arrived and how are dogs love to play outdoors in the fresh air and on the getting-to-be green grass. In all that playing around it is quite possible that your dog will run into a few little creatures enjoying the weather too. Such as rabbits, raccoons, squirrels, opossums and skunks. Even if you live in a more urban area these guys are all possible visitors.

Pierre and Mr. Houla happen to live in suburban neighborhoods, bordering farm land and open fields. We see these creatures out and about quite often. However, Daisy and Angel live in a more urban neighborhood and they have on more than one account dealt with opossums in their backyard.

Skunks mate during the early spring (March) and have their babies in May and June. So they are on the prowl now, a lot. And a Skunk is the only one who can make your dog smell worse than an open dump on a 100 degree humid day. Recently, I came across a recipe made from ingredients found at home and thought I would post it. In case of a stinky meet and greet between Mr. or Mrs. Skunk and your beloved dog.

Destink/Deskunk Your Dog Recipe

Mix together:

1 quart of hydrogen peroxide

1/4 cup baking soda

1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap

Wipe down your dogs fur with this mixture, rinse and shampoo with your regular dog shampoo.

Might have to repeat one time depending on the stink level!
