The best de-skunk-ification recipe( quoted form the dancing woofs newsletter) In a plastic bucket, mix 1 quart (or two pints) of 3% hydrogen peroxide with 1/4 cup of baking soda, and one or two teaspoons of a liquid detergent, like Dawn or Ivory. For bigger dogs, you can add some warm water to increase the batch volume. Mix the ingredients; it will fizz up. With rubber gloves, rub this solution on the dry dog and wait for five minutes, then rinse. Repeat if the stink won’t quit. Be sure to dispose of the solution afterwards, otherwise it releases oxygen gas that could cause a sealed container to explode. This remedy might bleach your dog’s hair a little, but that’s the price of a clean coat. Now give your dog a treat—and open one for yourself.
COPROPHAGIA (POOP - EATING)
Lucky, my sweet little border collie mix puppy is a connoisseur of poop. I finally got tired of it - and began researching it extensively. I ended up ordering "Potty Mouth" a supplement that makes Poop taste disgusting to her and that I am giving her in a concentrated form to evoke aversion. Till now it has worked. 5 days without her eating a piece of poop is momentous. I thought I would pass these tips on to you :-)
When Dogs that eat poop are in special danger of worm infections and should be dewormed monthly. Contrary to the assumption that dogs eat poop because they have a nutritional deficiency , some dogs eat poop for instinctual reasons.
I has been found that wild dogs in Africa had poop as 25% of their diet . They are scavengers and keep areas clean around villages and kills. A mother dog typically eats the poop of very young pups and it is quite common for pups up to 6 months to eat poop. Older that 6-8 month a pup should not be interested in poop anymore. If he is , it is strongly advised to put him nutritional medication , that makes poop taste disgusting to him - after 2 weeks of this the young dog normally develops an aversion to poop and needs to only be treated occasionally when the desire returns.
The older a dog is , the harder it becomes to cure them from this .
IS YOUR DOG'S STOMACH SICK ?
Here is how we treat Stomach sicknesses at the Kindred Spirit Ranch:
Don’t give dogs kibble if they have diarrhea or vomit until 12 hours after the problem has really cleared up. Rice and Canned food only. Kibble is hard to digest, says Dr. Maas, and might prompt relapse.
Mild Stomach disturbance: Give only soft food and 1 Pepto bismol!
Vomit : Pedialyte, Pepto Bismol for 12-24 hs ,no food for 12 hrs
Diarrhea- Anti- Diarrhea pill, RICE, Canned food. Monitor that the dog drinks water, if not give Pedialyte ...
