This one is something that effects all of us pet owners out there. Skunk Aid, came about because one of the girls dogs “Bella” got skunked. We all know how awful that smell is, imagine how bad it is for our fury little friends.

By packaging the solution with instructions and all the necessary items, Skunk Aid eliminates the worry of what to do next to rid your pet of the smell. The slogan: Easy, Safe, and Hassle Free couldn’t be more true.
