Skunks!

Skunk with aerosal can

     Dr. Sara Orvick, who retired when Dr. Rachel Orvick and Dr. Jim Stevenson purchased the OVC, had a pet skunk she rescued as a baby.  She named her Peaches, and said the only problem with her was finding someone willing to de-scent her.

     If your pet has a run in with any of Peaches' relatives you can de-scent him or her with Skunk Off!!, which we carry, or you can make your own.  A popular recipe on the internet and in veterinary materials is as follows:

Homemade Anti-Skunk Solution:
Wear eye protection and pour 1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, cup baking soda and 1 teaspoon of hand safe dishwashing liquid in a plastic bucket.  Stir briefly (it will fizz).  Scrub the pet with the solution using a soft brush.  Rinse with tap water.  Discard any unused solution.
