    Default Skunked Pet Smell Preparation

    I just came across this article about de-stinking your skunk sprayed pet, and thought folks might like to read it. Then get the needed ingredients on hand for a "maybe" problem as we move on into Spring.

    Locally, we are still kind of cold, so the skunks are not moving much yet. Other places further south have already seen the skunks wake up from hibernation and start being visible.

    Hope no one NEEDS this recipe!

    Yup, I always try and keep all that stuff on hand. Dawn works best for the soap, really breaks up the oils from the skunk spray.

    Also, don't be lulled into thinking it is safe even if it is still colder out. One of my dogs got skunked in February just 3 days after the blizzard that dumped 3 feet of snow on us!!

    One of my dogs came in the other night and had just been freshly skunked. It doesn't take long for skunk to deaden your sense of smell. I'm going to have to throw out the old quilt that she slept on.

    She's a pit. Most dogs learn after one skunking. Not pits.

    I have a golden who has been porcupined twice. I was like, really? Twenty-six stab wounds in your face didn't do it the first time?
