A friend knows someone whose Golden was sprayed in the face( eyes and nose) by a skunk. From what I heard, it is a serious injury. The dog continues to vomit, won't eat. Has anyone heard of any first aid for this. Can a vet do anything? I can't imagine there's any way to clean it out of nostrils or sinuses. Does the mucus just wash it out in time? It must be a serious trauma for the dog.
I'd certainly try the vet.Has anyone heard of any first aid for this. Can a vet do anything?
FWIW, the old tomato juice remedy doesn't work according to most people who've tried it.
"Skunk Off!" (Google it) is effective.
