    reposted for those wanting the recipe.

    My lab got mixed up with a SKUNK while training. I searched the web for a
    skunk wash and found this one.
    1 qt hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup of baking soda, 2 teaspoons dish soap DAWN, 1 qt apple cider vinegar, 1 qt of warm water.

    Worked so well I washed all the dogs with the stuff. left their fur soft, left no odor what so ever,
    and there wasn't hair falling out like with some of the shampoo.

    it erupts a little when you mix it.

    If you discover the cause of the odor, let us know.

    EARS! Whatever else you try, check the ears. An ear infection can stink, it can be very painful, it can make a dog deaf. Look, smell. Even take a piece of tissue and wipe around in there (don't let it get stuck!)--if there's anything on the tissue, go to the vet and have them show you how to take care of it.

    Once had a puppy that whenever he got close I could smell something that I couldn't detect what it was. Checked his ears, pads and finally his mouth Nothing or so I thought. He jumped up on the couch and I began to scratch his belly. He opened his mouth and sure enough there it was. He has bit a stick into and it had wedged between his molars and didn't come out. I had to pry it out from between those teeth but boy did he smell better.

    Perhaps she could have some kind of bacterial or fungal infection in her skin?

    I have a holistic animal foods shop. We see many stinky dogs. Put her on a grain free diet. The smell won't go away until the allergens from the grain are out of her system? Are her ears stinky or itchy? Also a sign of a grain allergy. My dogs had stinky breath which is due to the carbs in the diet as opposed to dirty teeth. I put them on grain free (ie..Fromm, Dr Tim's, Calfornia Naturals...all good stuff) and added raw diet (ie..Answers, Tuckers or Primal) and their breath does not smell nor do their bodies. It's okay to shampoo a dog once a week. Make sure to use a gentle all natural "dog" shampoo. People shampoos or soaps have a different PH than human products. Hope this helps.
