Sprayed by Skunk!
“First, and most important: DO NOT BATHE THE DOG! Or pour tomato juice on him, or any of the other home remedies you’ve heard about… You’ll want to do this as quickly as possible – both because it works best on the fresh, unoxidized compounds in the skunk “spray”, and because you’ll be suffering in the meantime. If the dog has been bathed, or even just rinsed with water, it’s not quite as effective as it would have been with fresh skunk spray.” https://www.whole-dog-journal.com/blog/Deskunking-Your-Dog-20089-1.html
DEODORIZE SKUNK treatment
Neutralize skunk odor
For pets that have been sprayed, bathe the animal in a mixture of:
1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide (from drug store)
1/4 cup of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
and a teaspoon of liquid detergent.
