      What should you do if your dog has been sprayed by a skunk? First off it's important to act as quickly as you can to get the oil off the fur. If possible keep your dog outdoors to avoid having that offensive skunk oil tracked through your home. Give us a call,  we will do our best to make ourselves available to help or you can do it yourself by following these steps. Put on some old clothing and a pair of latex or dish washing gloves. Do not wash your dog at this time! It will only spread the oil out making matters worse. Start by inspecting your dog, it should be quite obvious where the bulk of the oily spray has made contact. Blot the affected area with a generous amount of paper towel or an absorbent sponge to soak up as much of the oil as possible.  Next spot treat all effected areas by saturating fur with a solution of...
1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup of baking soda, 1 tsp. liquid dish soap.  CAUTION!   Do not get in eyes, nose , mouth, or open wounds.
Allow  solution to stand on coat for no more than 5 minutes before thoroughly rinsing with fresh water. If necessary repeat process before towelling dry. Next if possible spray on an enzyme based  de-skunking product to neutralize the residual odour. Wash the area with a de-skunking shampoo, (liquid dish soap will do in a pinch) and rinse. Finally bathe the entire dog with de-skunking shampoo and rinse thoroughly. If your dog was sprayed in the eyes you may need to flush them out with a sterile saline eye wash solution to prevent further irritation. Contact your Veterinarian if signs of irritation persist.

     Ticks can transmit some harmful and potentially fatal diseases to pets so it's important for us all to understand how to prevent tick bites as well as how to safely remove them if need be. Ticks tend to hide out in tall grass and wooded areas, so its particularly important to inspect dogs for any unwanted passengers following a camping trip or a walk in the woods. Many options exist to help deter ticks from biting. Your Veterinarian can prescribe a number of different treatments that are highly effective. You can purchase a flea and tick collar over the counter, and several essential oils such as Rose Geranium oil are an effective yet natural tick deterrent option, though they must be applied daily.  Whatever option you choose it's always  a good idea to inspect your dogs coat following any excursion where the risk exists.
     If you discover a tick on your dog it should be removed as soon as possible. Special tick tweezers are available that facilitate the removal process . The tweezers should be placed facing the head as close to the skin as possible. Apply enough pressure to firmly grasp the tick but take care not to crush it. Gently pull straight back maintaining a constant pressure and wait for the tick to release it's bite. Place the tick into a zip-lock bag and keep it to show your Veterinarian should the need arise. Disinfect and apply an ointment such as Bactin or Polysporin to the bite to help prevent infection.
