The Life of TriPod – a natural born tripawd Golden Retriever

Apr 13

Yes even our beloved tripawds can come across the occasional skunk.

I discovered this first hand a couple of months ago. Mr T and his mom, Dakota, decided they would go play with the cute little black and white kitty in the back of our property. Well as you may have guessed….it was not cute and it was not a kitty. Dakota got the worst of it but TriPod was right in the mix.

From past experience I knew the whole tomato juice thing didn’t work very well. So after a Google search we found the same formula as stated in the article below. It DOES work but just be careful to not get it in their eyes or let them swallow any (as stated in the article).

Of course, this was about 10:30 at night and we had to rush to the store before they closed to get what we need to de-skunk them.

Believe it our not once they were dry we were able to smell there coats up close and personal and there was no hint of skunk. We did have to double the recipe as they are larger dogs.

We now keep a “skunk kit” on hand just in case. Better safe than sorry.
