    Fuck. Help. Have no tomato juice, no chance of getting any. Does tomato soup work?? I know the baking soda cure, but no peroxide to mix it with. One dog hit, one escaped. Going to die from the stench. Fuck. Ideas?? Can I just fling him into the storm and hope he gets clean?

    Did the Screaming Flying Woot Monkeys set him/her up?

    You know, lead the dog to where the skunk was, dive bomb the skunk and let the dog take the blowback.

    They screamed EFFIN IRENE before the Woot choppers took off. Fucking monkeys, you know they're in bed with the skunks.

    And the poor dog? It's the breed used by Navy SEALs. A malinois. They can take apart a refrigerator and turn it into a motorscooter in under four minutes, but can't spot a skunk in the bushes. Unbelievable.

    I don't know about the tomato soup, but it seems to me it should work and might even work better because you rub it in. I wouldn't dilute it with water. Just open the can and rub it into the hair real good.

    My boxer got nailed once and it went in his mouth and everywhere. The tomato juice killed the smell on him, but I started force feeding him those breathe strips that dissolve.

    Expect the smell to linger for a day or two. My dog growing up got hit a couple of times and the tomato cure only diminishes the smell, doesn't get rid of it entirely.

    Forgot to mention, Malinois' are waterproof. Whatever you pour on them just rolls off. Dog runs into a lake, comes out dry. Impervious to everything but skunk gas, I guess.

    A little too late, but smell aside, the first trick is to get the sting off your dog, especially if it took it in the grille. Always keep a few big cans of tomato juice in the pantry for this. The acidic content in tomato juice neutralizes the acidic content in the skunk spray and calms your dog down so the pooch doesn't rub its nose in all the furniture and such trying to stop the stinging sensations. If that happens, it's time to crop dust your pad with Febreze.

    The worst.
    No real cure except time.
    Tomato juice and other remedies only reduce the smell. Skunk spray is like Jordan. You can't stop it; you can only hope to contain it.
    Keep dog outside as much as possible.
