Help!! Skunk smell

I know the list has talked about this but couldn't find it. We are leaving on vacation with the dog on Sat. If I had the money I could kennel him, but don't. Staying with him on vacation was only $25 more so that was worth it (since last kennelling ran close to $300). I don't want the place to

    Default Help!! Skunk smell

    I know the list has talked about this but couldn't find it.

    We are leaving on vacation with the dog on Sat. If I had the money I could kennel him, but don't. Staying with him on vacation was only $25 more so that was worth it (since last kennelling ran close to $300). I don't want the place to smell like skunk when we leave and the thought of being in car locked in with it for over 2 1/2 hours is not cool either.

    Did tomato & dog detergent late last night.

    Found this info on a vet website, hope it helps.....


    Either use a treatment specifically formulated for use on skunk odors like Skunk Kleen or Skunk-Off, or use the following formula:

    1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
    1/4 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
    1 teaspoon liquid soap
    This recipe can be doubled for bigger breeds.

    Wet your pet down and work the mixture through the pet's hair. Leave it on for three to four minutes and rinse. This will generally need to be repeated several times. Be sure to throw away any excess mixture. Do NOT get any of the mixture in the eyes; as a precaution, place protective ophthalmic ointment in the eyes.

    Note that the above mixture may bleach the hair color temporarily until the animal sheds and new hair grows in. Common antidotes like tomato juice, vinegar, or regular shampoos will not be as effective.

    never had that problem, but baking soda usually works for us for things like htat.

    We used tomato juice and that didn't work. What we found that worked best was vinegar, but the smell still lingers for a while. Good luck!
