My dog got nailed by a full frontal attack this morning....I use a combo of hydrogen peroxide....baking soda and Dawn....anybody got anything better.........
Douche... My aunt did it to her dog.. and it worked
Wash the dog in tomato juice!
Happens to my stupid dog once every few months. I use the same combo that you did, but you can't really completely kill the smell. It sticks with them for a while.
I will connect a VT story to this one... Friend was walking back through the cow fields to Fox Ridge after tying one on and ran up on a skunk. Needless to say he got the bad end of the deal. We could smell him before he got to the door....
tomato juice, preferrable canned from the garden and lemon juice.
Happened to my dog a few years back - got sprayed point blank. I let someone else deal with it. Called Petsmart and they took him in and gave him the skunk treatment. Worked pretty well but you will need to give it some time.
Yeah, I've seen the tomato juice thing dismissed as an old wives' tale, but we used it on our dog years ago and it worked like a charm.
The hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and dish soap is the best mix. Don't use water, that just sets the stink. Tomato juice will just turn your dog red, doesn't work on smell (does mask it a little). My dog has been skunked SIX times in the last 6 months (and I live in downtown Redondo Beach), so trust me, I'm an expert.
And yes, I should shoot the dog because I'm not allowed to shoot the skunk. Goldens, great with kids, dumb as rocks.

My father was a Veterinarian. Vets have some chemical dip that they use for this that will almost completely get rid of the oder; however if you don't want to go that route, the other three in this thread with the tomato juice recommendation are correct.
If all else fails try a pint of Old Crow. When you can no longer smell the dog , you can stop drinking.
your dog's reaction to a tomato juice douche

Some good friends of mine had an Irish setter that was always getting sprayed when they would
camp at Claytor lake. they used Head & Shoulders shampoo along with Tomato Juice. It worked everytime.
Have you noticed that douche and touche do not rhyme?
tomato juice, peroxide, baking soda, and dish soap. Unfortunately it'll take 2 or 3 times of washing before the skunk smell subsides. My golden got sprayed 2 years ago and this formula works. Your hands might burn mixing it up so possibly wear rubber gloves if you have any.
