Last Sunday at 3am, my dog Sadie woke my wife and I up because she REALLY wanted to go outside. Turns out, it was to play with a skunk, which sprayed her point blank right in the face and mouth! We let her in, unknowing of her being sprayed. She's trained to go right in the kitchen and lay down after being outside so she doesn't track anything all over the house (thank god for this). She was in major distress, shaking her head and pawing at her nose/mouth, and salivating all over the floor, shaking her head. Best I can describe the smell is burnt garlic/rubber smell that was more overpowering than anything I've smelled, ever. It did NOT smell like skunk. I thought that she got sprayed by another animal, or maybe pepper sprayed by someone. I googled "dog sprayed garlic" and found out that yes, it was a skunk. I put her back outside with a bowl of water, turned off the air conditioners, opened the windows, and turned 2 window fans on blowing inward to limit the smell to the kitchen, and hot mopped my house 4 or 5 times with shower spray and then Mr. Clean with febreeze. Thank god I have hardwood floors. I was up from 3am til about 8am, and had looked at Petsmart and Petco's sites to find de-skunking products. I posted on facebook what happened and I had a few friends recommend using the homemade concoction using peroxide, baking soda, and dish soap, so I went to the store to buy this, and treated her when I got home. I let it sit in her fur for about 10 minutes before rinsing it out, and following up with a bath with her Burt's Bees oatmeal colloidal dog shampoo. Everything I'd done seemed to work pretty well. I got most of the smell out of the house, and most off the dog. After a week of febreeze and burning expensive candles we're in good shape, but Sadie smells a bit still but very tolerable. I brushed her with scented grooming spray yesterday. My wallet was in the kitchen when this happened, and that smelled bad of skunk for several days...
