My little dog got sprayed right in the mouth, around his muzzle and eyes tonight by a baby skunk that’s been hanging around! I tried all the suggestions I found on here before remembering someone had told me to use Listerine mouth wash a long time ago. All I had here was kids Listerine so I used a toothbrush to apply and work it in. I left it in for about ten minutes then used a paper towel to soak up any excess but did not rinse it off. It works really well but now he has skunk breath! I even tried brushing his teeth! Any Ideas on how to get the smell out of his mouth? Every time he breaths on us all you smell is skunk! Poor guy! Any suggestions would be great! TIA
