Dog Specialist: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Mix a cup of vanilla extract in a gallon of water to get rid of skunk odor. Let your dog soak in the solution for about 10 minutes before applying dog shampoo and rinsing. That should help get rid of the skunk odor and you can do this today and repeat tomorrow until scent is gone....Make sure your dog is vaccinated for Rabies.....hope that helps. DRB
