We were in central Texas this weekend to do some mountain biking. All three of my dogs were sprayed by a skunk. Woolite - yes, freaking Woolite worked magic. The smell was gone after one bath. I couldn't believe it.

Is that safe for dogs? I'd check with a vet first.

Yes, as long as you don't machine-dry them. :lol:

Day 3. All three dogs are perfectly fine - oh and a vet is who recommended it.

Okay ... I'd heard of using tomato paste before, but never woolite.
