Skunk

15 posts in this topic

My Brittany got sprayed Saturday morning. Cabin and dog reeked!!! Used a recipe I heard on KFAN Outdoors. A bottle of hydrogin paroxide, liquid dish soap and baking powder and a pair of rubber gloves. I had this in a kit and it sure came in handy. Worked like a charm. Only bad things can happen when you let a dog out in the dark.

I always have a bottle of "Nature's Miracle Skunk Odor Remover" with after going through that sevral times over the years. It costs about $9 a bottle at Petco. It also works on other odors dog get from rolling in dead things and so on that these critters always seem to find.

Do you use the products in that order seperately or do you apply all of them to the dog at the same time?

Or do you mix them together and then put them on the dog?

You mix it all together just before you put it on the dog.

How much dish soap and baking powder do you use?

This odor remover is made from simple household ingredients:

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide

1/4 cup of baking soda

1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap.

Mix the three ingredients together and use immediately. The chemical reaction produced from these ingredients lasts only a limited time.

If you use this formula to remove skunk odor from your pet, be sure to rinse offhim off with water. Do not let the solution soak for more than a few minutes.

Couple more things about this recipe, don't store it once it's mixed, in a sealed container. It creates a gas that will expand and "explode" if left in a container with a lid. Could be nasty if put in a glass container and just plain messy if in a plastic one. The Peroxide is a bleaching agent so be careful what you put it on. Also, the solution is good only for a few hours at most so don't premix it thinking you'll have it handy for emergencies. I've used it, unfortunately, and found it to work great on most things. Leather boots aren't one of them.

To add... Try to keep it out of your dogs eyes. I put a few drops of olive oil in their eyes to help.

Newman got hit by a skunk tonight...I was in the house and could smell it right away...I IMMEDIATELY went to find him outside and sure enough as soon as i opened the basement slider I knew what I was in for...Holey skunk!!!!

I grabbed him immediately to keep him from running inside and wouldnt you know it my hand went right into the spray. DAAAAAAAAAMN

Unfortunately I have winterized my outdoors and moved my hoses and stuff into the basement. I had to rinse him the best I could with a few buckets of soapy water and carried him into the shower where I gave him 3 baths. He's pretty clean now, the only place I can smell any skunk is if I stick my nostrils right on his snout. The baking soda/hydrogen peroxide was my choice of deoderizers.

The only thing that is left smelling horrible now is my hands!!! Madge I soaked them! Still cant get the stink out!!

What a mess.

My dog was sprayed six different times by skunks. Four times in her first year of hunting. The recipe works!

I had my dogs get sprayed by a skunk and used some skunk away stuff, worked great. A couple of weeks later they rolled in dead rotten (in the water) raccoon. I tried the skunk away, nothing. I used a custom blend of dish soap, vinegar, and herbal essences. That worked, course they were unhappy they didn't reek any longer and smelled really fruity....

I had to use the recipe a couple weeks ago myself after the dog had a slight encounter with a skunk. She wasn't real bad, but you could definitely smell it on her. I had my sister call a vet to see if they had any of that over the counter skunk spray on hand, but instead the vet recommended the peroxide recipe as a much more effective way of removing the smell. It seemed to do the job!

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
