What do you do when your dog gets sprayed by a skunk?!?
We all know that awful smell that lingers in your nose and everyone has their own remedy for getting rid of the skunky smell but the best way to ensure the smell doesn't reside on your pet and in your home is
A skunks spray is oil based and the longer that oil sits on your pet
the more it soaks into the hair follicles and skin and the harder it is to get out!
ALL4K9 is available for emergency skunk baths!
We use a professional grade de-skunking spray that
immediately neutralizes odors and then give your K9 a through bathing with an odor eliminating shampoo.

I am not promising that these will work to remove the skunk smell but here are some
popular home remedies said to reduce the smell of skunk spray. Remember time is key!
The longer the spray sits on your dog the harder it is to get off!!!
DON'T USE TOMATO JUICE! IT DOESN'T WORK!
It may stain your pet's coat and the acidity is bad for your pet's skin
***BEFORE APPLYING WATER*** take paper towels and towel off any visably oily/yellow areas to prevent spreading the oil
***NEVER WET YOUR DOG FIRST*** this will only spread the oil, always apply deskunking products directly on dry hair
Use distilled vinegar to sponge the area that is sprayed to "neutralize the odor". Then use dawn dish soap to cut through the oil. Follow with regular shampoo and conditioner or a great smelling aroma therapy shampoo!
Since a dog is usually sprayed in the face: Rinse the eyes under water. Finely mist a 50-50 solution of vinegar-water up the nose
(Take care not to aspirate your dog!!).
