Skunk Information

Getting sprayed by a skunk instructions

Getting sprayed by a skunk happens to curious dogs who stick their noses into places that annoy skunks. It happens to cats, too, just not nearly as often. Unless your pet has been skunked, you may not realize that the odor stuck to your pet is not the same minor one that you smell driving down a road where a skunk has released its scent. The up close and personal smell won’t just make you wrinkle your nose and gag; it’s a bit like the acrid smell of burning rubber or chemical fire that grasps your lungs and hurts your eyes. If people have this reaction from being next to their pet, imagine what pets, with their highly sensitive noses, feel!
