How To Remove The Smell of Fox Poo From The Dog

Your rating: None
It doesn’t matter how big the field, or how small the pile of fox poo – your dog will find it! Those dog owners who’ve tried to get rid of the smell will know that no matter how many shampooing sessions your pet is subjected to, nothing will shift it. Try this:
What you'll need: 
Rubber gloves
Dog shampoo
Tomato ketchup
Shampoo the area thoroughly with dog shampoo and rinse off with warm water.
Apply a liberal amount of tomato ketchup to the area and work well into the fur.
Rinse thoroughly with warm water and dry the dog. Do not re-shampoo.
Remember to treat the collar with ketchup as the canvass or leather will also retain the smell
This treatment works with both long and short-haired dogs, and prevents the need for the dog to spend the night in the shed!
