If your pet gets sprayed by a skunk, wash him with Dawn dish detergent. Just as Dawn cuts grease on dirty dishes, it will cut the oil in the skunk spray. I would ask your vet about treating the mouth.

Seriously, according to Mythbusters, a baking soda bath works better than Tomato Juice.

Easy tomato-juice bath, then I take my dog to a regular bath.

If you want your dog to smell like tomato juice and skunk spray, give it a tomato juice bath. If you want to get rid of the skunk smell quick, mix 1 quart hydrogen peroxide with a quarter cup of baking soda and a squirt of dog shampoo in a plastic bucket. Add a cup of water and mix thoroughly. Put on some rubber gloves and get the dog in the grass and apply mixture with sponge or wash rag. Let it sit for 15 minutes and give it a regular bath. The odor will be neutralized and you won't have a pink dog. I have 2 labs and live in the country and they get hit at list twice a year. This works. Don't premix the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and store in the cabinet as the solution is highly unstable; e.g. kaboom....

I tried peroxide, tomato juice and baking soda. All it does is spreads the skunk oil and the smell. Dog shampoos masks the odor temporarily. Veterinarians use Doggicleen Skunk Spray. It works!

What if a dog won't eat or drink after being sprayed by a skunk?

It probably got skunk spray in its mouth, which can make it hard to taste anything but it. Best way to deal with it is to wash the poor dog's mouth with tomato juice or some other skunk removing substance that's non-toxic. I'd see your vet.

This morning my cat was sprayed by a skunk. Now he is foaming at the mouth an hour later. Is it Rabies?

The cat is foaming from being exposed to the gaseous spray from the skunk (sort of like if you had been sprayed in the face with mustard gas), foaming and drooling from the mouth, as well as watery eyes and nose are some side affects a sprayed victim is going to exhibit. This is how the body naturally responds in trying to get rid of/wash away the skunk spray. If an animal or person had been infected by rabies they would not instantly show symptoms of the infection (this only happens in movies such as, "Twenty Eight Days Later"). It usually takes 20 to 60 days for the infected victim to show the classic rabies symptoms; such as violent behavior, foaming of the mouth (due to painful swallowing and the inability to drink water), excessive physical sensitivity (sight, sound, touch), etc... In order for the victim to have the rabies virus it would have had to have been bitten by the infected animal or been sprayed in the eyes, mouth, or open wound by the virus infested saliva. Of corse two of the main urban area carries of rabies are usually skunks and raccoons, so unless you live on a rabies free island it would be best to make sure that all of your outdoor pets are up to date on all of their shots (even a cow can become infected with rabies).
