I have a 10 year old long hair miniature daschund . Last night he got into it with something g in the back yard my family member said it was a toad , he's had this skunk like / sulfur smell stinking up
The entire house but it's not a skunk spray it's something else even the vet had no answer . It has stunk up
The entire house . We gabe him a bath but it's still on his breath and in the air

And then for an encore today he was at a friends house and ripped the leg off a dead rotting baby rabbit that was beating eaten by maggots I got him
To drop the leg but he smells absolutely
Disgusting from both events and have no idea what to do

Fox pee smells like skunk spray but less strong.

Ditto for skunk cabbage.

What wild animals frequent your area? There are other animals with musk glands.

Maybe try bathing him in Simple Solution or another enzyme-based cleaner. It does well at removing stains and smells from the three Ps and blood. Worth trying.

We have a fenced in yard in a residential neighborhood with not much woods.

But we have a very humid climate , so lots of insects , frogs . I haven't seen fox . Bht we have possum , coy dogs , skunk , fisher cats .


My family
Members just assumes it was a frog but the odor is smelling up
The house and it seems to be only
Comming from
His mouth or head area .

And should I be concerned with him eating rotted rabbit ?

Also how would a fox urinate on my dog ? Or is it strong enough to be rolled in

Oh, fox pee is strong alright. I once left some watersport shoes outside on the ground so they could dry out in the sun.

Next time I used them, I noticed a very strong muskiness coming from them. Didn't take a genius to figure out a fox had marked them, since I had seen red fox around fairly often.

The scent required multiple washings and many weeks before it went away. And yes, getting it on my hands and feet made them smell, too. The stuff is more oily than watery. Or maybe it is a direct discharge from musk glands rather than mixed with pee. That I don't know.

I didn't think frogs had musk. But fisher cats might. Aren't they related to weasels, mustelids? OK, I gotta Google that now...

OK, fishers do indeed have "strong-smelling anal glands" according to Wikipedia.

That's probably the culprit, unless the smell is extremely powerful, which most likely is skunk.

I have no idea if your dog will get sick from eating rotten rabbit meat. It should be obvious if it happens. But parasitic infestations might not be obvious at first. Maybe your vet can help.

My dog rolled in some kind of animal urine I think - ew! I have apple cider vinegar. Anyone know at what concentration to mix it with water and spray on her? And maybe that would also help OP?

Try this to de-skunk a dog:

Mix 1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide (found at any pharmacy), 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 teaspoon dish washing detergent Dawn works well. Don't get it in the dogs eyes & don't let it sit too long as it may bleach the dog's fur. Rinse well & shampoo again with regular dog shampoo. Towel dry. Dog should be smelling sweet & fresh after all this.

If you get the skunk stink on your cloth wash with 1/2 cup baking soda with regular laundry detergent. Hope this helps!

From experience of living in the country this works.
