Subject: BS: It wasn't a skunk...
From: SINSULL
Date: 05 Oct 07 - 08:38 PM

Seamus is visiting. He got all excited about something he saw in the back yard. I foolishly let him out thinking it was a local dog who comes to visit. He chased somethin all over the yard. I caught sight of something white and the size of a cat but it wasn't.
Then came the smell - sort of garlic and grass. Seamus rolled and rolled in the grass. I got him on the porch and came him and his face a going over with a wet cloth.
He stinks but not of skunk. Garlic. grass. I don't know.
Anyone know what he upset? What do I do about the stink?

When you get a heavy dose of skunk that's exactly what it smells like. You will eventually notice it less and less as your olfactory receptors become saturated, but it will still be around for quite a while.

Did you try this?

    Paul Krebaum, a chemist, invented a new more effective formula for de-skunking a dog. Mix in an open bucket or bowl:

    1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
    ¼ cup baking soda
    1 teaspoon of strong liquid soap such as dishwashing detergent.

    Mix the ingredients in an open bucket or bowl. The mixture will fizz. Wet your dog and thoroughly massage the solution into the coat. Be sure to keep the mixture out of the dogs eyes, nose and mouth. If it is necessary to apply it to the dogs face, very carefully use a washcloth or a sponge. After applying the mixture to all parts of your dog that may have been sprayed, rinse the dog thoroughly.

    *Warning*

    This mixture can be explosive, as it will fizz and creates pressure if it is enclosed in a seal tight container. Never store unused portion, always discard. Be sure to only mix in an open container and do not try to store or cover it in any way. Do not get the mixture into the dog's eyes, nose or mouth.

I know I'm bein' a pain in the arse. Dogs ain't too bright. And he won't think twice about chasing the skunk again, either. I had a dog that took a dislike to porcupines. I pulled quills out of him on four different occasions. I swore I'd shoot him if it happened a fifth time. It didn't. Nothin' to do with telling the dog I'd shoot it, which I would have. Just that we moved to the city shortly after that and there ain't too many porcupines in the city. Stupidest sonuvabitch I ever met in my whole life.

Before you pull out porcupine quills, cut off the end of the quill. This deflates the quill and makes it easier and less painful to remove.

The tomato juice Rx is a wives tale. I've used it on several occasions and all it pretty much does is create a new odoriferous compound which is a combination of onion, garlic and tomato - something like pasta sauce - come to think of it. The peroxide, baking soda, detergent formula is supposed to be the most effective neutralizer, from all accounts that I've heard, and what I will use if ever the occasion presents itself.

Bobad's formula was vetted and deemed effective by the Mythbusters.

The nice thing about nasty smells (did I just say that?) is that you sense of smell is the only sense that actually doesn't register smells that remain the same for a while. The problem is that Seamus would probably move, or you would, thus intensifying the smell.

I think you are all nuts about that.

It just smells like SKUNK.

Get some Natures Miracle De Skunk or whatever it is, or live with it for a few weeks and a few baths with nice smelling shampoo.

Just Google Natures Miracle, there are several different de smell things from it.

After the third or fourth bath formula attempted, punctuated by banishments, Seamus will get the idea that for some weird reason, you just like to freeze him and then send him out cold and wet again. He will learn to run from baths because it will amount to aversion therapy.

Clearly this calls for a houseparty where each person brings their own idea of what might work, plus treats, and takes a turn washing the dog. If enough alcohol is involved you will even be able to seem like you're having fun with it, at least. :~)

Can dogs be Febrezed?


After a housefire they run a huge ionizing machine to take the horrible smoke smells out of the air. Do skunky dogs do well incarcerated with same? You could call your local fire-cleaner-upper-afterer and ask if they deskunk.

New definition of friend: someone who lets a friend's dog skunk your hosue, try to clean the dog, and keep the dog until claimed.

The fire crew can at least de-skunk your house when the dog goes home.

They say an onion smells up the air less if you peel it under running water. I guess you can't just park the dog under a running hose at this time of year. But can he have a good long swim somewhere?

A neighbor told me the best cure was Massengill Douche. She had some in the house & volunteered to do the job as I had to go to work. When I came home my Lady was fine. Took a day with AC on to rid the house of the skunk smell though.

Since the smell is probably concentrated in the dog's fur, why not shave him bald and then give him a nice bath? Kendall would be surprised to have a Maine Hairless when he returns, and Seamus could wear nice jackets until his hair grows out again. You could even trap the skunk and make it into a cute little hat for Seamus to wear for a while, sort of a Davy Crockett kind of thing (it will help immensely it the skunk is dead when you do this).

Why, I'll betcha that just the look on Kendall's face when he saw his bald dog with a skunk cap would be worth all the trouble!

Mary I found this. It may help, De-skunking your house and it gives you something practical to do, It makes sense from a chemical point of view since it sounds like there is a fair amount of Phosphine in Skunk smell and the volatile Acetic acid in the boiling vinegar should neutralise it.

I was nine months pregnant, ready to go into labor any time.
It was 11 pm at night and my collie Mandy wanted to go out
the back door. She got sprayed by a skunk.

I called a friend to help me who showed up with
a large can of tomato juice. I don't remember if
that helped at all.

My advice- open the yellow pages and look under
pet grooming. Call a professional. They will know
how to best get the smell out as much as possible.

Good luck.

I don't think he got it straight in the face. But he was so fascinated by the smell that he rolled in it. Peroxide/baking soda concoction seems to have worked but he is still a bit gamy.
I left all the windows open and all the fans on last night. By now I may be immune to the smell but I think the place is OK.
Apples and cinnamon boiling on the stove. His bed is outside airing. And the damn fool is still trying to find the skunk.
No beach trip in my car.
Funny how happy he is to stink.

Dogs and strong stinks are much like some people and loud music. (I was gonna say 'teenagers' but many aren't and I've been known to crank up the odd tune.) If it's big, whether it's sound or smell, it's good. Dogs smell any anuses they can, they sniff shit, they'll just snort rotten, drippy, putrescent dead things. Seamus probably thinks a skunk smells like the Glade ™ of the outdoors.

Friends of mine live in Hyannis and their dog chased a skunk one December night. They phoned the dog groomers, who (amazingly) were not keen on taking in a skunked Goldie on the kind of night that discouraged window opening. The groomers suggested tomato juice or better still, douche.
In the mean time dog and husband, who had also been skunked, were sent down the beach for a swim, to try and get rid of some of the smell.
So, cold, wet, salty AND skunky, all at the same time, they were not a happy pair of bunnies.
I seen to remember the douch was the most effective.
