Skunks

The size of a cat or smaller with long fur and bushy tails, skunks are easily identified by their distinctive black and white coloration. These near-sighted omnivores have a hearty appetite for grubs and insect pests, and have also been known to consume mice and small rats. They are members of the Mustelid family, which also includes weasels, martens, and badgers. Skunks are found throughout North America, with only one species found in Asia.

How long does it take for your OBD2 systems to reset?

It can be almost immediate depending on which monitor. The amount and specific monitors vary between autos. Some monitors will not run if there is a different monitor that fails. Typically, there is a drive cycle that must be performed for all of the monitors to set. This also varies from car to car. In most instances the cooling system and fuel temperature must be ambient or the same before beginning. Unless your car has a fuel temperature sensor, the drive cycle must start from a cold start. This can be a tough operation to perform and complete due to other traffic or speed limits or signals. If you are unable to follow it, all the monitors do not reset.

How do you remove skunk odor on a dog?

My dogs have had their fair share of run-ins with skunks. If you want something that works, try BON-CC-41. This is the only SAFE product I have found that really eliminates the odor the first time it is used. Not only does it eliminate the skunk odor from my dogs, but I can also use it to get rid of the skunk odors around my house, like on furniture, floors and I even use it in my laundry for the towels that had run-ins with the skunked dogs. The method that works the best is to add the BON-CC-41 to some dawn soap and wash the dog with it. The combination works AWESOME! Nothing else can beat it!

My dog use to get sprayed about 2 times a year. I tried the tomato juice, peroxide/baking soda/soap formula, as well as some skunk removal products at the pet stores, Vets and on line all with limited success. I was reading that it is skunk OIL. Well working on cars and needing to clean the grease and OIL my hands what so I have a bar of ....yes Lava Soap. So I tired it today after my dog got it again after a 3 year hiatus. I follow up with cloths detergent and Clorox II mixed together. Well this works for me! Next time I may try hand degreaser/cleaner.

AnswerUsing strong chemicals and cleaners on your dog is likely to cause skin irritations that will like cost lots of money at the vet. If you are desperate to tone down the skunk smell the Secret Formula mentioned below will do pretty well provided you shampoo the sprayed area on the dog with a detergent pet shampoo. Use Joy or Dawn detergent in the hydrogen peroxide mixture.

To get rid of the rest of the odor there is a product that I have used on my dog called Odorxit Concentrate that really gets rid of all the odor. Unfortunately unless you live in Ohio you have to get from the web site.

Answer">AnswerThey use to say tomato juice, but that's an old wive's tale. Phone a vet and they have a formula (you would probably have the ingredients in your home to make it up) and put it on the dog. Only the vet has the secret. LOL

The tomato juice DOES work, you need a lot depending on the size dog, and how bad they got sprayed. rub it all in good and then rinse, wash with some dog shampoo, and then do it all again. Sometimes the dog will still be a little stinky when wet but it will be ok if you do it two or three times - glad there are not as many skunks around here Stream

Answer">AnswerLast time our German Shepherd got sprayed, we thought seriously about what is contained in skunk spray--basically it has an oily base with a bad odor. What safely removes oil and grease? Hand dishwashing detergent. What removes odors? Baking soda. Mix these two together--it may take a few baths, but it cuts the smell considerably. Answer">AnswerSomething that works 10 times better than tomato juice is a mix I got a few years ago recommended by Wildlife Control Technology Magazine. You can not make it up and store it since the chemicals react and can not be bottled. Once you make the up the solution, use all of it. It will foam up on your dog as the chemicals are reacting. Make sure you get every part of the dog otherwise you will smell the parts you missed. Be extra careful not to get in the eyes! Use a sponge to apply, then rinse good. Can be used multiple times, but the peroxide drys out their skin.

Mix in bucket:

1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 tsp liquid soap

The peroxide is the normal everyday home use type and the soap can be dish soap or laundry soap.

Answer">AnswerI believe Petastic has a product out with an enzyme that takes out the skunk smell from both your dog and any thing in your house that might have that smell. There is also an all natural formula that I can not remember the name of. Answer">AnswerPeroxide and tomato juice can be harsh on the dogs skin. The best an inexpensive solution is what the vets use "Doggicleen Skunk Spray" I've used it twice and it works magnificently!

A REAL REMEDY: I'll be honest I tried EVERYTHING. In order, I tried: Tomato juice, dog shampoo, more tomato juice, mouth wash, the peroxide/baking soda/dish soap combo (which by the way only bleached my dogs coat), diet coke, nothing worked. I called my vet and was told to do vinegar for 15 minutes then wash with dawn dishsoap. I didn't do the vinegar part but Dishsoap WORKED! I tried the apple blossom scented soap and it's amazing! So keep Dawn handy in the house in case your pet gets skunked. It does the trick!

Don't Use Tomato Juice or Tomato Paste. While a lot of people think it works, it actually doesn't. It just causes olfactory fatigue where your mind thinks the smell is gone when it's still there. For example, if you go into a stinky bathroom and light a match and then blow it out, the smell is still there but the smoke from the match had a strong enough odor to temporarily trick your mind into thinking the original odor was gone.

What can you use to get rid of an odor that smells like sickness in a house?

I dont know what you mean about ''Sick", but maybe a spray called Febreze could help because it always helps my house even though my house doesn't smell sick. It just gives it a clean smell. Maybe you might not like the smell because it might be to strong for you or you might be allergic to exotic smells like that, but I actually think you should give it a try. vacuum, and mop bathroom and kitchen with bleach and water. wipe surfaces in bathroom and kitchen with bleach and water. wipe surfaces in other rooms with water and lysol in brown bottle. just a tiny bit of this stuff with water. this will clean the place deep down and the odor will be eliminated not just masked, However, if you don't want to do all of this, burn inscense, it always does the trick.
