My next door neighbor had a snow white, fluffy dog who was sprayed by a skunk. Someone told him to use tomato juice to get rid of the smell. He ended up with a PINK dog for almost a month! (Oh, and it still smelled like skunk!)
Ah, Tomato Juice… When I worked in the Emergency Room, we kept several gallons of tomato juice (no, not for making Bloody Mary’s) for the sole purpose of giving tomato juice baths to persons that had the unfortunate encounter with Pepe Le Pew, the skunk. Also, had on hand several pounds of yellow cornmeal for them to roll in. The only side effect to this bazaar treatment was that the patient had a slightly reddish tint, after rinsing off the tomato-cornmeal mush.
I think that if your neighbor had used the cornmeal on the dog, he would have had better results. -ake
Yeah, the dog would have probably come out pastel pink instead of carnation pink!
But why is it pets usually get “nailed” by skunks just as you go to bring them in for the night, or when they ask to go out in the middle of the night?
