    Professional groomer can take care of that. Best you can probably do is shampoo. Don't forget the dog is probably miserable too.

    The old tomato sauce/paste routine does actually help cut down the smell pretty well. It's not a cure-all but it's better than nothing. Sorry man skunks stink.

    Your op mix seems to be best . Read more posts on that mix and how to apply . They say to Hurry to not let the oil dry . They say the smell can last up to 2 years !

    I found that tomato juice made it worse, skunk/tomato smell was worse to me than just the skunk smell. just a couple baths with shampoo and some time was the best option when it happened to me.

    not sure what its called, but we have some super dog shampoo that makes the dog smell like a french whorehouse after you wash him with it, and gets rid of the skunks fart from his fur. im not home else id tell you what exactly it is, but it works great. our dog usually gets sprayed once a year or so...

    From what I've run across the solution you posted is about the best you can do. Other than that just have to wait it out. We hit a skunk in my friends truck about two weeks ago. He sprayed all over the wheel well and it still kinda smells.

    yes, keep reading the dishsoap, hydro-peroxide and baking soda is the way to go. gonna run out to the store to get some more. and try to get him into the groomer tomorrow. unfortunately now the house smells too:annoyed: anyway thanks all for your input, it is appreciated.

    Unfortunately not. I own a grooming shop, and from experience I can tell you there really isn't a remedy that cures all. It depends on how badly the dog got sprayed. My dog once got sprayed from about 8" away right between the eyes. He stunk for about 10 months whenever he got wet.

    If it's a wheaten, you could always have it shaved.. That will help.

    Wish I could be of more help, but that's a hardcore chemical your dog messed with.
