SKUNKED again. Last night I let Brooks out before bed (he uses an e-collar to confine his roaming to 1/2 acre of our property). Our windows were open and about 10 min later my husband says "I smell skunk" and at that same moment we heard Brooks barking ferociously.
I called him in immediately, but it was too late. I don't think he got a direct hit (as there wasn't anything wet on him) but he smells to high heaven of skunk.
I decided not to use the hydrogen peroxide/baking soda treatment I used last time as he shook it off and it took the finish off our wood floors, so instead used Orginal Scope mouthwash, followed by a white vinegar and water bath (I just made that up myself, no idea if it neutralizes skunk odor). Then he got to sleep out in the mudroom. Today I sprayed him with OdoBan. He is tolerable but slightly skunky.
BTW, I thought the odor DETERRED animals---I had Brooks outside with me in my yard and he immediately went to the place where the skunk had sprayed again!! Huh?

Oh NO! That really stinks (excuse the pun) I have washed many a skunked pup but thankfully neither Caue or Oak have been skunked. (Knocking furiously on wood right now)

My husband just went over to sit on the sofa and said "OMG, Brooks must have gotten up here this morning after you let him in"
Great. It's a leather sofa and I used a leather cleaner, but don't want to try anything else on it. Hope it doesn't retain that smell.....

Ain't country life grand!?! I should try to find the picture I have of Brandy after she had a bar room brawl with a racoon. The vet said it was the first time she had seen a dog with a black eye. (You should have seen the racoon, it had two black eyes)!

I know what you can use is armor all wipes for leather car seats, some have power of orange cleaner in them and different ones


also a bowl with baking soda in it helps in room
good luck
