Skunk got your pet?
(Albion - NY)
How's the water?
Try 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide, 1/2 cup baking soda, and a little shampoo.
This mixture breaks down the skunk oils so it can be shampooed away! We did it for our cat Tazz..who wasn't so lucky prowling one night..he actually didn't mind a bath..seen here..thinking about a swim.
Editor's note: Denise, thanks for sharing this great recipe for de-skunking a cat. Love that photo of Tazz getting ready to take a plunge into the swimming pool as well!
