Recommended emergency skunk relief if your pet gets sprayed

First the formula works very well, but only if you use it before any other therapies.


  • 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide (the one in the brown bottle)
  • 1/4 of a cup of baking soda
  • Couple of teapoons of pet shampoo or Dawn dishsoap

Shake ingredients well, wet your pet, and then apply mixture to your pet.

Massage in well and then rinse very well.  DO NOT GET IN EYES.  This mixture is flammable.  Do not store near open flame.

If your pet is still smelling like skunk, you can repeat the process immediately.
