Skunk Odor: Direct Contact
Identifying the Odor
The Worst odor on your skin or on your pets skin has to be skunk odor! Agree?
Do not apply these processes to open wounds, eyes, nostrils, inner ear area, or any other sensitive open area of the body.
- If the skunk odor on the pet needs to be taken care of quickly and has a thick covering of hair which makes it hard to apply tomato paste to the actual skin. Then the hair needs to be all shaved off or at least shaved to a point where the tomato paste is able to totally cover the skin. Otherwise the process of shampooing and an unknown amount of time out doors or in a separate confined space will allow the skunk odor to disappear due to the pets body emitting oils on a consistent basis.
- Apply the tomato paste in a thick layered form over the entire body excluding open and very sensitive parts, using your own common sense (human or pet).
- Agitate the tomato paste into the skin of the entire body, always keeping the tomato paste moist.
- Attempt to keep the pet in a position, that prevents the animal from self cleaning itself.
- Make sure the paste covering stays moist for up to a couple of hours.
- Give soap or shampoo bath to clean off tomato paste covering.
- Dry off and evaluate the severity of the situation before attempting to repeat the process or before attempting the next process.
- The Following is an Alternative Process as a spray:
- 1 teaspoon liquid soap
- 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
- 1/4 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
- Do not use ozone to deodorize pet or human skin.
