In all the years I have owned a dog I have NEVER had one sprayed by a skunk. Until last night. We heard our BC Connor barking at , what we thought was a cat. Until his bark changed from a "CAT CAT CAT" bark to a "WHAT ARE YOU?" bark. I told my husband to get him in but it was too late. Connor got it in the chest. Luckily not his face. Of course I immediately think 'Tomato" Tell Connor "Tub" and dh brings me Chunky Pasta sauce!! LOL So the dog had veggies in his coat. Let that sit, send dh to computer to look up other remedies. Comes back with Hydrogen Peroxide,dish detergent and baking soda*good thing I bought some the other day for cookies* That seemed to work. But I have to admit it was funny. I felt so bad for Connor. And told him no barking at the black and white cat. It happened at the end of the steps going to the back yard. So. Will skunks kill chickens? I have always knows we have one(2) in the neighborhood. We also have a family of raccoons which my cat is "friendly" with.
