I know what you are going through. My dog has also been sprayed a couple of times. I have tried many different techniques, and a solution of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda worked best on my dog and was much better and less messy then washing him in tomato juice. This solution was developed by a chemist and chemically neutralizes skunk odor. The ingredients should be mixed in an open container and used immediately. Wash your dog with the solution and leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing. You may need to wash more than once. Our dog was sprayed in the mouth and there was nothing we could do about the skunk breath which lasted for over a week!

Recipe for skunk odor removal solution

  • 1 quart (.95 L) 3% hydrogen peroxide (fresh bottle)
  • 1/4 cup (70 g) baking sodium bicarbonate)
  • 1-2 teaspoon (5-10 ml) liquid dish soap

Mix together in an open container and use immediately
