Kai was sprayed by a skunk for the twelfth-thousandth time last night (it’s chill. it’s part of his job to keep wildlife away from my livestock and gardens)
after some experimenting i finally got the stink removal process down to a science. no smell at all today!
don’t allow the dog inside til they’re dry. and you gotta get started as fast as possible. first, you dab off all the oil you can with paper towels. then DRENCH the stinky spots in a hydrogen peroxide, water, baking soda mix. like, so much more than you think you need. really scrub it in there. leave that on for at least 15 minutes, rinse off, then work in some heavy-duty dish detergent. again. use a ton. let that sit for 15+ minutes too and rinse again. repeat both steps if there’s still a smell. voila. stinkless dog.
your nose is gonna be so traumatized you might not be able to tell which parts of the dog are smelliest, so it helps to have someone be a sniff-tester
