Tips and Tricks from

Hall of Fame Mobile Grooming

 

OH MY!!!    Has your dog been Skunked?

 

DON'T - Do NOT bathe your dog with home remedies such as tomato juice, vinegar, etc.  - this will NOT work. Skunks are common in suburban areas. Frequent encounters with dogs and other domestic animals, and the release of the odor when a skunk is run over, have led to many myths about the removal of the skunk odor. Skunk spray is very oily and contains sulfur. Due to the chemical composition of the skunk spray, most of these household remedies are ineffective.

 

DO - As soon as you realize your dog has been sprayed by a skunk, put on some rubber or latex gloves and old clothes and look your dog over for bites or scratches. Also check its' eyes for redness or discharge. If any injuries are found, you should contact your veterinarian immediately.

 

Call Hall of Fame Mobile Grooming! The longer you wait - the more embedded the odor becomes in your dog's coat. We use a special mix of products that has a proven track record of effectiveness. 

 

To help avoid future meetings between skunks and your dog, try to prevent skunks from becoming attracted to your property. Do not leave food outside, including bird seed and fallen fruit from trees. Make sure garbage cans are well-secured. Placing moth balls and ammonia-soaked rags around your property might deter skunks from approaching. When doing so use caution not to place these items within your dog's ability to reach them. In addition, keep your dog within eye shot and keep her from running into wooded areas unattended.
