My dog takes her guard dog duties seriously, so when she found a skunk raiding the garbage cans, she had to give chase and "Bwoof" it off the property. The dog had never encountered a skunk before and no amount of yelling at her to stand down had any effect. When she finally came back to the house , she looked pretty pleased with herself for having run the skunk off... uh-huh and failed to understand why I wasn't appreciative of her heroic efforts. She seemed less pleased when the bath started and when I started pouring on the tomato juice, she became very unhappy. Hmmmmm.... apparently the dog thinks tomato juice is worse than being sprayed in the face by a skunk. I wasn't too happy about the tomato juice bath either and hadn't had to do one in about 45 years. I had forgotten how hard it was to get the skunk stench off and it takes a lot of soap and shampoo to get the tomato juice off as well.
Biscuit (my dog) does like the liquid peppermint soap though. Where she spits the tomato juice out(as evidenced in the photo), the peppermint soap she happily tries to lick off which results in foaming at the mouth(missed a photo-op there)

So folks I can confirm the tomato juice bath works on the skunk smell... but it takes another good smelling shampoo to get rid of the tomato juice and it's smell.

Here's a better recipe if your animal gets skunked. Add 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide (any drugstore), 1/4 cup of baking soda, 2 tbsp of dish detergent (not dishwasher soap) and mix in large bowl because it will start to foam. Scrub animal with this while it is foaming (the mixture, hopeully not the animal). I've tried this method and it works much better than tomato juice. If you live in the country it will beheave you to keep these supplies on hand. Word of caution. Do not pre mix ingrediants and put in an enclosed container because it will blow up.
