In recent weeks, several customers contacted us because their dog had been sprayed by a skunk. In this kind of situation, the pet owner is often at a loss and does not know what to do next. Wash the dog with a regular soap? Wash the dog with tomato juice or a mixture of peroxide? These solutions do not always work, and the skunk smell often remains impregnated in the coat of the animal. To effectively eliminate the bad smell, we advise our customers to use the Magic Odour and Magic Shampoo duo. These products completely eliminate the skunk smell; they are easy to use and safe for the animal.
Here are the steps to follow if your dog has been sprayed by a skunk
Before you begin, it is important to leave your pet outside of the house or garage, otherwise, there is a good chance the smell will spread throughout the interior.
First, you need to quickly remove the yellow liquid that remains on your dog. This liquid is very corrosive and if the animal tries to lick it, it could cause serious burns to its tongue, palate and throat. To do this, simply use a clean cloth to wipe away the excess yellow liquid. Once this step is completed, spray Magic Odour everywhere on your dog, taking care to avoid the mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth), and let it work for five minutes. It is very important to treat your pet’s head as it is often at this point that it was most severely sprayed. This step allows to stop the skunk smell right away, allowing you to wash your dog thoroughly inside your home or garage.
Afterwards, you can use the Magic Shampoo to wash your pet, taking care to lather thoroughly. Allow the product to work by leaving it on your pet for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. During the treatment, it is also important to clean your animal’s head and ears for the reasons mentioned above. If you had to remove yellow liquid from your pet’s coat, we suggest letting the Magic Shampoo product work for an additional 10 minutes.
Note that the steps are the same in the case of your cat getting sprayed by a skunk.
If the skunk smell is outside the house…
We recently met with a client struggling with a strong odor of skunk in his backyard. Indeed, the skunk had sprayed the balcony, made of concrete and with aluminum ramps. Traces of yellow liquid could still be seen where the skunk had sprayed, on the concrete and the white ramps.
The smell was so strong that the customer did not know what to do. If you have the same problem, here are the steps to follow.
If the odor comes from the grass, shrubs or flowers, simply spray D-500 over the affected area, adhering to the dilution factor indicated on the label. Note that a second application may be necessary. If this is the case, allow a 4-hour interval between each treatment.
If the odor actually comes from the concrete or wood balcony, simply spray D-500 over the affected area by diluting 45 ml of product for 1 liter of warm water, and let the product work. In the case of our client, the concrete was stained by the yellow liquid sprayed by the skunk. Indeed, the concrete had absorbed all the liquid from the skunk, and it took several applications of the product before the odor disappeared; this is because the smell of skunk is one of the most difficult to resolve when absorbed into a porous material such as concrete.
