My sister called me one day after her Golden Retriever mix (Bella) got sprayed right in the face by a skunk. Unfortunately they had let Bella indoors before realizing what had happened. Here’s a great de-skunking recipe for all those pets that get into trouble like Bella!
1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon (or a little more) liquid dishwashing soap (Dawn works great)
Add a drop of lavender or roman chamomile Essential Oil (optional)
Be sure to wear gloves. Soak the animal with the mixture and rinse off thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.
DO NOT GET IN THE ANIMAL’S EYES.
Do not store or save any leftover mixture, use immediately.
