Get Skunk Smell off Your Pet, So You can Cuddle with Them Again!
Is your pet banished to the outdoors until you can find a way to remove that horrible skunk smell?
It’s inevitable that your furry friend will have a run-in (and you know he/she will be on the losing side of it!) with a skunk. It happens all the time.
For your sake and the sake of your pet, you want to quickly remove the odor. It’s unpleasant for both of you.
If your pet is like most, getting him or her to site still while you apply a homemade solution isn’t going to be easy or fun for either of you.
If you want to go the homemade route and see if you can get it to work for you, here are the details:
First, you’ll need to mix a liquid solution to apply onto your pet. This solution can drip while it’s being applied so be sure to protect your pet first. Place cotton balls in their ears so that the solution doesn’t get in, which could cause some damage. Also, drop some baby oil or olive oil into your pet’s eyes. This will also protect the sensitive and delicate tissue in there from becoming damaged. Then, protect yourself. Getting rid of skunk smell on your pet can take some time, and during that time, the skunk smell may become absorbed by your hands – which will then smell like skunk if you don’t protect them.
The solution is: 4 cups of hydrogen peroxide; 4 tablespoons of baking soda; and 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid. Then it’s best to take your pet outside. Not only can cleaning smell skunk off a pet be messy and take some time, but the smell is extremely potent and can easily creep into every crevice of your home, so it’s outdoors for the furry friend until you are done the cleaning process.
Start at the head, and rub the cleansing solution into your pet’s fur and skin. Continue to work your way down their body, making sure you get every piece of fur and skin that you can. Knead and rub the cleaning mixture with the animal’s coat to make sure that you get it as clean as possible. Then just rinse your pet off with cool water and they should smell clean and fresh! If they don’t, just repeat the process again until your beloved pet no longer smells like skunk. Please note while this product is totally safe for your dog, if your dog has sensitive skin, it could potentially cause dry skin.
