It's officially SKUNK SEASON! "I smell a skunk. Where is BLake? Oh, nooooo!"
Skunk, happens. Recently, Dan Wolfe, news anchor at KBJR, posted on social media that his dog, Louis was sprayed by a skunk yesterday! Dan Wolfe KBJR 6 "It finally happened. Louie got skunked. He’d avoided the stinky wrath for 6 years. Hydrogen peroxide rinse time."
Here are some ideas to deter skunks and a recipe if your pooch gets sprayed.
Bright Lights, Motion Sensor Flood Light
Citrus Fruit Peel & Moth Balls
Ammonia Soaked Cotton Balls
Peppermint Essental Oil
Scatter Coffee Grounds
Dog Urine Helps TOO!
Recipe for Skunk Shampoo:
Mix in a Bucket:
1/4 Cup of Baking Soda
1-2 Tsp of Mild Dishwashing Detergent
(we have found that Dawn works the best)
1 Quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
Work the foaming mix well into the coat.
Leave on for 5 minutes.
Rinse with warm water.
Follow with your regular shampoo if desired.
We hope you make it thru the season without being skunked!
