Good thing Calvin is small, huh? You and I would have needed a couple buckets worth of that stuff for our furry ones when it happened to us. Maybe because of our dogs thick undercoats it lingers longer because you can't get to it? Yes, that smell returns over and over again, uuuggghhh!
I get the feeling Calvin took basically a spray bath in that lovely spring smell. It's like perfume covering up body odor though. That stench shall return again, and again, and again................lol

Thank God we live right by the store!! I knew it was going to work after about 10 seconds - I couldn't smell the skunk on him anymore. Totally amazing! My friend worked for a vet and she told me that is exactly what they recommend to people. There is an oil in the skunk spray and the dishwashing liquid breaks that up. The baking soda neutralizes the smell while I bet the fizzing of the hydrogen peroxide gets the solution into the coat. If the smell returns, which I suspect that it might once the Febreeze wears off, you now know what to do. But as Spa said, when they get wet, you can still smell it a little. Everything has a lovely "spring breeze" smell Guess I must not have used enough!!
Hey, thanks gang! What a learning tool we have here at JP.com! HRMG, that is quite a formula! Wish I would have had it the night of the incident. Thanks to you too, HB.
Oddly enough, the Febreze worked pretty damn well. Had to give the carpet where the hound rolled around another soak but everything now has this lovely "spring breeze" smell to it. Dog included.
@ Bud. How about I soak YOU in gasoline for one minute, light you on fire and wait until you burn out naturally while Calvin and I watch from the pool. You might not live but I bet you'd be neat to watch. Especially at night. Perhaps kerosene as you'd burn brighter for the camera.
