A Stinky Solution

As we enter hunting season, we thought some of you may need a helpful home remedy for those pooches who come nose to nose with Pepe Le Pew!

This Skunk Odor Removal Recipe is exerpted from the Pet Emergency Care Guide by the Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center

Put on goggles or other eye protection.
In a bucket, mix:
   *1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
   *1/4 cup baking soda
   *1 tsp. of hand-safe dishwashing liquid

Stir ingredients briefly.  The solution will fizz as the hydrogen peroxide decomposes and releases bubbles of oxygen. Have a friend hold the smelly pet in a washtub while you scrub in the solution with a soft brush.  Rinse the pet with tap water.  (you may need to repeat the treatment on your friend ;)
