Sprayed by Skunk
If your Australian was sprayed by a skunk PLEASE help!
Our Aussie got sprayed by a skunk a few nights ago. That morning we bathed her with Odormute. The smell is no longer overpowering, but still noticeable. Mom searched online, and today we washed her again with a mixture of equal parts dish soap, vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide, warm rinse. We didn't get the head, for fear of leaking mixture into eyes.
She still smells. We have washed other breeds sprayed by a skunk with the Odormute and it worked. We verified with a friend who is a Vet Tech regarding hydrogen peroxide/dish soap/vinegar wash, this how they tell their clients to solve the problem.
I feel maybe the reason we are not fully removing this smell is due to the unique type of coat of the Aussie. I don't know what else to do.
