Deskunk Your Pet! PSA Audio File & Script

Welcome to Ark Animals Answers!

Today’s Critter Chat concerns: Tips for deskunking your pet!

Did you know that skunk spray contains a repellent compound also found in decomposing meat and feces? A skunk can blast their target from ten to fifteen feet away and the oily musk is like sap or glue.

Effective products for deskunking include:
·Skunk Kleen or Skunk Odor Eliminator.
·A good shampoo and twenty minute soak in tomato juice or paste.
·AND believe it or not the Massengil brand douche works fabulously. Just soak the pet for fifteen to twenty minutes and follow with a shampoo.
·Finally, another home remedy is to mix one quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide, with a quarter cup of baking soda, and one teaspoon pet shampoo. Soak the pet for up to five minutes and rinse.

Getting your pet to clean up its act isn’t always easy but you can certainly help!
