Tami, tomato juice just makes the dog smell like skunk-tomato juice! Tried
it when Pez got skunked. The bond that needs to be broken is a mercaptin
bond. These are like alcohols but instead of oxygen, the atom is sulphur.
Most of the weak acids like lemon or tomato juice don't work well. That
earlier recipee sounded pretty good though! I'll have to find that bottle
and send out the product. The same company also sells another for urine.
They are enzyme based. Man, I'm glad I've never had to work a skunked dog!
Guess everyone whether they could see or not would know I was coming!

Yikes, indeed! Since we came back to eastern Oregon, I have developed a
chronic worry that my guide dog will be skunked when I need to use her
to go somewhere. I always heard of the tomato juice treatment and that
it didn't get the smell out without numerous treatments and a few days.
Sounds like vinegar would be enough to be able to use the guide within a
mile of people. /smile/ I'll remember that one! And hope I don't need
Glad you're still good to go, Tracy! Guess you don't need to be rural to
