Got Skunked? from your Pet Groomer at Wash & Wag Grooming

Posted September 22nd, 2010 by groomer

Oh how those furry little black and white creatures can wreak so much havoc!

Should you ever experience a skunking (and I hope you don’t) STAY AWAY FROM WATER – DO NOT BATHE!  Skunks emit an oily substance and bathing without properly neutralizing the stench first will only make matters worse; it will spread the oil into the skin.

The old remedies of tomato juice, lemon juice, and vinegar just don’t work.  Contact your Groomer or Vet right away for instructions on what to do next, you’ll be glad you did.
