How To Deskunk Your Dog


I have lived in The hills above Sunset Junction in the artsy part of Silver Lake for over three years now and I love it! I love the views. I love the birds. I love the junction. I hate the skunks.
If you live up in the hills anywhere in The City of Angels you’re probably familiar with our stinky little pests. Skunks are everywhere! If you have a dog than it’s only just a matter of time before you’ll really need this information.
In the past year and a half my Boxer Bentley has gotten sprayed three times. Twice in front of my same neighbor’s porch. (The one who swears she’s not leaving food out for stray cats). And once now in our own back yard. We found a space under our fence where the little bugger must have squeezed through in the dark.
32 oz. bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 cup Baking Soda
1 Tbs. Liquid Dish Soap (Preferrably Dawn)
Mix together in a large bowl and apply immediately! Leave mixture on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
You can thank me later.
