Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

1) Bathe in regular dog shampoo and rinse well.

2) Bathe in a 50:50 hydrogen peroxide mix - then rinse well.

3) Bathe the dog again with regular dog shampoo again. Rinse well.

It is also important to flush the eyes out very well as they can get a lot of eye irritation from this!
