Viewing Wildlife tips
Arizona Dept. of Fish and Game recommendations for wildlife viewing
Sometimes when we visit wildlife areas or even in our backyards, our best friends (dogs) get a warning salvo from a skunk. Working at a Wildlife Area I caught the aroma on many occasions, but it happened to our best friends in our backyard. Skunks cannot climb, but they will make it through any opening in your fence and they love pet food. Although we had no pet food out, that did not help our dogs. What did help were hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and a little Dawn dishwashing soap and this company cares about wildlife. If you activate your donation online, every bottle of Dawn you purchase will create a $1 donation to wildlife rescues (visit their website to learn more; follow them on Facebook ). In case you didn't know, Dawn is also used to help wildlife when they are victims of toxic spills. Petcare.com has several remedies for skunked pets, we recommend option one.
