Steps to Get Rid of and Remove Skunk Smell from Your Dog or Other Pet

Introduction:This is a great list of steps to get rid of and remove that horrid skunk smell from your dog or other pet.

  • 01

    Eyes

    When your precious dog or other pet has been sprayed by a stinky, smelly skunk, you may be bewildered and not know just what to do or even where to start. All you know is that you need to get rid of and remove that greasy, grimy skunk junk as soon as possible.

    A good idea would be to start by using a contact solution to rinse out your dog's eyes. A dog or other pet that has been sprayed by a skunk has most likely been sprayed in their eyes. If this has happened, their eyes will surely be bothering them.

    You will probably see redness and swelling in your dog or other pet's eyes. Your pet will be trying to clean their eyes on their own, but this is a simple solution for you to use to help them out.

  • 02

    Veterinarian

    You can call your pet's veterinarian to find out how to get rid of and remove that horrible skunk smell from your dog, cat, or other pet. You really do not need to call your vet if you know how to remove this greasy, grimy skunk scum from your dog or other pet.

    Many pet owners have more faith in their veterinarians advice, but this is the newest way to remove that horrible skunk smell.

    Do not rely on that old wives' tale about using tomato juice. Tomato juice simply does not help with the removal of all that awful oil and grease that is on your pet, and it does not work good.

  • 03

    3% Peroxide

    After rinsing out your pet's eyes and repeating if necessary, you will need to get rid of and remove that horrible smell and skunk scum that is still all over your pet. The sooner that you do this, the better.

    The three items that you will be needing to get rid of that skunk smell from your pet are all simple household items that are found in most homes. These three items will be used to make a simple mixture that you can easily make to clean your pet off and have them smelling good again very quickly.

    The first item you will need is one quart of Hydrogen Peroxide.

  • 04

    Baking Soda

    When your wonderful, loving pet has been sprayed by a skunk and you need to get rid of that skunk smell in a hurry, this can be a horrible time for you. The skunk smell is not only quite disgusting, but even the residue from the skunk spray that is left on your pet is a horrible thing to deal with. This skunk junk that is on your pet is very oily, greasy, and grimy.

    The second ingredient that you will need to clean your stinky pet is another simple household item which is also found in most homes.

    The second item you will need is one cup of baking soda.

  • 05

    Dish Soap

    The third, and last item that you will need to mix together to quickly and easily get rid of and remove that horrid smell from your dog or other pet that has been sprayed by a skunk is one of the most common household ingredients ever.

    You may need to go out to the store and buy either the one quart of hydrogen peroxide or the one cup of baking soda. If you do not have these two ingredients on hand, you can easily get started removing this horrible skunk smell from your pet with this last simple, household item.

    The last ingredient needed for getting rid of this horrible skunk smell is one teaspoon of any kind of grease cutting dish soap. You can use just the dish soap to get started even though it is highly recommended to mix all three items together. This entire mixture works the best.

    Wash your pet, and repeat as necessary.

    My neighbor's dog had a run in with a skunk last summer. it was pretty bad. They tried everything mentionable to try to get rid of the smell which helped a lot but you would still smell it in her all summer long. Fortunately neither one of my dogs have been skunked. It is an aweful smell that lingers for a long time. Nice way of getting the skunk smell out of dogs. Well written list.

    I was in my late forties before I ever smelled a skunk and someone else identified it for me (it was one that had been hit by a car) and it really did STINK! I have six dogs, but thankfully none have ever encountered a skunk. I'm glad to have this list though, as a "just in case" measure. Thank you!
