Ugh. What a nightmare. Last Saturday night LittleDog and Sam went out to potty after dark and got hit by a skunk. It was seriously scary for LittleDog as he has a few (common to Pug) breathing issues. He got a direct hit to the face. When he came in the house he was in full foam and gasping for air. What has followed has been an endless amount of laundry, baths, more laundry, furnace filter changes and more laundry.
If you have dogs and there are any skunks residing in your area please get a supply of Nature's Miracle Skunk Odor Remover and some Fresh Wave. Between these two things I am able to breath for the most part. The faint scent will linger for weeks, I'm sure, but it's not as bad as it was. They got hit late on Saturday evening and I had no idea what I would need to clean them up. The remedy that the emergency vet's receptionist imparted was a bit helpful but only served to get me smelling skunky too.
Do not wash your dog without rubber gloves, do not let your dog stay in the house the night after he's been skunked and do not let your dog get skunked during a time of the year when the heat is on...
You're very welcome from the terrible twosome.
