    Poor skunk,
    Good luck with the smell you can wash and get the worst part off but be prepared to have residuall smell for a LONNNG time. [​IMG]
    You might try boiling mint leaves or essential oils in a big pot of water that will help with the smell inside while you are figureing out how to get rid of the smell on youre person

    Thats what that smell is. [​IMG]

    What we did for our dog is I covered her in tomato juice and left it on her. I mean just leave it. I didn't give her a bath for about a week.It took care of it.

    I tried everyting too but the mistake I ade is I washed it out. I bought 2 bottles of the stuff from the vet to get rid of the smell and washed it out too soon. I was told by the receptionist that what she does is drench her dog or cat in tomato juice and let it dry for a few days. Well, my dog had smelled so bad for way too long so as soon as the weather broke and it warmed up and stayed dry I did it and it worked.

    Poor baby thought she did something wrong becuse nobody wanted to be near her much less pet her. When we got the smell off we all made up for it. After all, she was protecting our flock when it happened. She chased it away. It was trying to dig into the coop.

    Just keep trying things. I had a dog once that bit into a skunk's butt and got sprayed right into the mouth/nose/eyes. She needed to go to the vet because it was a severe eye irritant but they used some commerical skunk stuff and she was tolerable but you could still smell it somewhat.

    ok thanks everybody.I jusst finished washing the truck inside and out and dog crates since we were on a hike when it happened and hadd quite away to travel to get back.My poor dog he hasn't had a that many baths in his whole life and he is 8.I don't think anyone can smell me anymore I did several tx.and showered at least 4xx .Good thing we live in teh country the first shower in soaking then waiting I had to do outside in the hose naked.I will be writing this oon my bblog.I have had a string of bad luck we ran over a dog cable with the tractor and is has hopelessly messed up the blade and we can't get it off.My husband tried to fix abut he just had surgery on his shoulder and now we hope he didn't do bad damage.My egg eater ate another egg today and I don't know who she is!!and my hatch was not good,only 9babies out of 40 at least 8 were developeing but were dead like that last day or so.And 2 of the babies I culled they didn't look good.
