Episode 9    Animal General Podcast | Q and A (Dog Anxiety, Incessant Barking, Skunks and more...)

about this episode

In this episode, Dr. Mike answers more questions from listeners, read by his youngest son, Slade. Questions addressed by Dr. Mike include: How to treat a dog with separation anxiety (medication vs. behavior training)? What's the best way to stop a dog from incessantly barking? If a pet is sprayed by a skunk, what's the best way to get rid of the odor? What can be done to treat hip dysplasia in dogs (weight loss, lasers, surgery, stem cells)? Can stem cells treat Wobbler's Disease and other degenerative myelopathy conditions? Dr. Mike answers these questions and more.


Mix 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide + 1/4 cup of baking soda + 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap (Dawn dish soap works well). Mix the ingredients and use immediately. The chemical reaction produced from these ingredients lasts only a limited time. Do NOT wet the dog first!!!

Pour the solution over your pet, rub it in thoroughly (remember to wear gloves so you don't smell like the skunk)! Then let the pet soak for a few minutes. RINSE off. Do not leave the solution on your pet. Repeat if necessary.
