Are skunks dangerous?
Skunks are relatively small creatures, roughly the size of a cat and they are easily recognizable with their black & white striping.
For the most part, skunks are docile animals except when they feel threatened or under attack. In that sense, yes – skunks can be quite dangerous!
The most natural and common reaction by a frightened skunk is to rely on its key defense mechanism and spray an awful smelling, oil like substance. Not only does skunk spray smell incredibly foul, it burns your eyes much like tear gas, causes gagging and wheezing and in some cases, nausea and vomiting if the spray is swallowed. For people with asthma and respiratory challenges, these reactions can be very extreme and it is recommended that medical attention is sought immediately.
Beyond its tendency to spray, skunks have been known to attack and bite. As known carriers and transmitters of rabies and other viruses, skunk bites can become a health concern for you and your pets. If you or your pet are scratched or bitten by a skunk, you should seek immediate medical attention.
Our pest removal services include
ant extermination, rat removal, mice extermination, cockroach removal, bed bug removal, fly control, pest inspection & treatment and wildlife removal services.
Dog sprayed by a skunk?
Getting skunk spray blasted in the face is a sadly common threat faced by dogs. Be it dogs are generally curious and do not read the warning signs skunks give before spraying (i.e. stomping their feet, raising their tales and facing their back end towards their target), they are routinely victims of skunk spraying.
The direct blast of skunk spray also gets into your dog’s eyes and there will be a burning (like tear gas) sensation. Rinsing your dog’s eyes with cold water should be done immediately.
Rinsing and washing your dog’s coat is needed. To avoid spreading the oily substance on your dog’s coat, try to focus your washing efforts on only the areas that are sprayed. Keep your dog outside while washing to avoid spreading the odour inside your home. Multiple washes may be needed. Tomato juice baths and water & vinegar combinations are reported to be helpful.
In the event your dog starts to vomit or has diarrhea, a vet visit is in order. Research suggests that in high concentrations, skunk spray may damage their internal organs and can be deadly.
As a pet owner, you should be extra cautious when it comes to skunk activity in and around your home. For assistance, please contact Icon Pest & Wildlife Skunk Removal Thornhill at (647) 325 9060
