You can't keep them on hand because it goes bad but then rub that into the areas on the hair where the skunk has sprayed the dog and leave that on for five to ten minutes and then rinse thoroughly. A couple cautions, skunk spray can also cause conjunctivitis in dogs and irritate their eyes so if that is occurring, get your veterinarian to check that out.
