Dealing with the unexpected…smell

At some point, your dog will likely get sprayed by a skunk. (Some dogs are repeat offenders.)

The next time you visit Bathe R Doggie, buy a bottle of Nature’s Miracle Skunk Odor Remover and keep it on hand. It removes skunk odor from dogs, cats, people, clothing, carpets and other contaminated surfaces. Read more about this product on the Nature’s Miracle website.

But what if it’s 2 a.m. and your pet’s been sprayed…and you just don’t have that bottle of Nature’s Miracle? Search online for “deskunking a dog” and you’ll find a variety of recipes using hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and liquid soap. These DIY remedies can work, but you need to follow the instructions carefully and bathe your smelly dog outside!

After-hours medical help

If your pet becomes ill or gets injured when your regular vet’s office is closed, these medical facilities may be able to help. Do call first to make sure they are open.
