Skunk smell remover

To the backyard chicken-keeper, skunks are pests, disease-carriers, feed-thieves and killers. As we all know, they also boast a
unique defense mechanism that has the ability to continue to offend its victims for days or weeks: the stink factor. My neighbor, "Miss Sarah," as my daughters call her, has a beautiful Akbash farm dog named Peanut, who recently had the misfortune of meeting the south-bound end of a north-bound skunk- face first.

The mention of this skunk encounter on my Facebook page prompted the sharing of a 'recipe' for a de-skunking solution by Shelly W. Several others, seasoned dog groomers included, vouched for its effectiveness and contributed tips that I now invite you to keep handy in the event you should ever need it.

Yikes, talk about upping the ante! Glad to know it worked and you could get back to your card game. :)

I use to buy a shampoo for dogs that was a green apple scent and one time my dogs were sprayed by a skunk and came in the house before we knew it during a friendly poker game...LOL. The shampoo worked. I also know that tomato juice would work too. They both have a citrus acid in them and get rid of odors.

We keep gallons of tomato juice on hand as this works well for de-skunking an animal or human.

Jone, the dog in this blog post was sprayed directly in the face. :(

This really does work, but be careful to NOT get it in the dogs eyes or mouth. Use a washcloth or rag to gently wipe these areas down.
