Dog with Skunk Breath?

June 18, 2005

My dog got skunked last night and I used the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and liquid soap method that worked very well on his coat. The problem now is that when the dog got sprayed by the skunk, he was barking and apparently got a mouthful of the spray also. He still has that awful smell coming from his mouth and nose. Any other helpful hints would be appreciated.


Thank you,

I lived on a farm, and we always kept tomato juice around to wash dogs that tangled with skunks. It works, and they tend to lick it off. See if he will drink some tomato juice. It works for me. ARDIS

I have four dogs, we live in Kodiak alaska. It's a US Coast Guard post and a major fishing town. We take our dogs to the beach to run sometimes. Sometimes ther is approx. thousands of dead salmon that wash to shore. It's a natural occurance. Okay- Here is the only way I was able to get the most vile stench of dead fish times a thousand. DOUCHE. You bathe then best you can then open bottle of summers eve or whatever and rub it into the fur all over and make sure it stays on them for 5 minutes and it works.


Much cleaner than getting tomatoe juice all over the bathroom.
I know i looked strange to the cashier when I bought 10 double boxes of douche but it was worth it because it was the only THING TO WORK,

My dog has been sprayed twice now and nothing has worked for her breath. But the peroxide and baking soda works good for the fur.

We recently had our Pitt bull get sprayed twice in a week from an adult skunk.
The bath treatment with baking soda and peroxide works great for for her coat, but this last time she had the skunk by the rear, and received the full treatment in her mouth. we tried the greenie snacks from the pet store, there expensive, but they work! The smell was gone in a day!


Now we keep a handful in the cabinet if this happens again. Hope this helps!

Garlic is extremely harmful for dogs. It's on the same level as feeding your dog chocolate.

I make my own dog toothpaste using 1 cup of melted coconut oil, 1/4 cup baking soda, few drops of peppermint oil. Mix well let harden and use finger toothbrush. My dogs love getting their teeth brushed and has helped when they killed a skunk and carried it to the back door for me.


I used the peroxide solution for the fur that worked well too.

Recently one of my dogs got sprayed in her face by a skunk. Her breath was horrible, even after we repeatedly rinsed her mouth and face. Finally, I discovered that after feeding her raw carrots and potato chunks, the smell disappeared.
