Sell it on EBay as "slightly-shunked" & buy a new one.

The alternative is washing it in the bathtub, with the slighly skunky odors forever drifting out in warmer conditions.

Buy a Subaru, grow a thin goatee and start wearing a beanie.

Your new friends will think your pad smells like weed.

Hey Big Mike, I've known people to use tomato juice on their skunked dogs and also people who just use soapy water. Both seem to work. Is tomato juice better? If it's the acid in tomatoes, could you use vinegar instead?

I'm just curious.

my dog got "skunked", nothing mentioned here worked.

you'll have to either wash your pad repeatedly or get a new dog.

Thanks in advance.

tomato juice doesn't work.

H202 and baking soda. you get the redox reaction you're looking for.

The internet says: Hydrogen peroxide - baking soda - soap

Strong oxidizing agent is required. H2O2 will do best. Bleach is very good too, but might ruin your pad!

Lets have a story here? How did this happen?

In the meantime avoid sit-starts.
