Two things work...
But first...the old wives tale of tomato juice is just that, a wives tale. It does NOT work! Trust me, I know! Here's what does work...
1. I would have never thought of this, but a vet told me about it...Massengil feminine douche
Give them several baths in it. Our ACD got nailed right in the face at point blank range. It was soo horrific I completely lost my sense of smell
(seriously). All I could smell was this hint of garlic, so I went to the store at 3:30 AM in the morning smelling to high heaven like a skunk and
bought every bottle of Massengil they had. The sales clerk looked at me like I was crazy! My parting shot was..."Oh yeah, and where are your
extra heavy duty condoms???"
(I saw her visibly wretch!) LOL!
Seriously, the stuff works!
2. Coconut oil
- Pets hate it, but after we washed our ACD down with the Massengil a couple times, we then dried him off and coated him with a
layer of coconut oil (the stuff that's solid like vegetable shortening). Just gobbed it on him and rubbed it in. He was a greasy mess, but the
cocounut oil releases the skunk oils from the skin and hair follicles, then when it wears off, or gets washed off, the stench goes with it.
In my youth I had a dog get sprayed by a skunk. Tried the tomato juice route. That dog smelled like a skunk every time he got wet for the rest of
his life. I wish I'd have known about the coconut oil back then. Our ACD got blasted just last May and you can't smell it at all now, even when
You actually have to leave the coconut oil on for a while for it to work. They'll start licking it off or, in the case of our ACD, rolling around in
the dirt, and straw and cow poop in the corrals. Then he was a ghastly nightmare, but it's amazing how these animals know to clean themselves!
Within a few hours he smelled like he just took a bath! Seriously!
