Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: Dog got skunked
LOL Tomato juice. Really works. It doesn't clean the smell off, it just smells stronger than the skunk, kind of over powers it on the skin kind of thing. Nothing but time really gets rid of it.

We have skunks and fox (who smell like skunks) pass by here often. I can sleep through most of them but get whammed by the smell as soon as I take the mask off. Then my CPAP stinks for several days. Why didn't it bother me when I slept? I dunno. I'm just weird.

Just out of curiosity, how is your dog now? Do you think he 'learned' his lesson to stay away from those "striped kitty kats"?

RE: Dog got skunked
He still has a faint odor of skunk... his bath was somewhat deficient as he gets extreme anxiety when you try to bathe him (rescue mutt with issues!) This was his second skunking and he did not actually chase this one - he happened upon it in the blackberry bushes between my house and the neighbors. There are tons of skunks around this year in the neighborhood, too much construction in the area, I think!

After the first skunking he would sniff the air before venturing off the back porch. He was very cautious for a while. There has been no test of the skunk caution though - they seem to be avoiding the back yard(where he got nailed the first time) and this happened in the front. I just dont take him out front after dark now Big Grin

My son almost got himself skunked in the front yard as well Shock

I cannot verify the accuracy of this suggestion, but a online friend from across the 'pond' said that placing moth balls around bushes and flowers will discourage skunks from hanging around the area. We placed the moth balls around the perimeter of our garden this summer and it seemed to work. Only problem is that once it rains, you have to replace the moth balls too.

So you buy stock in the moth ball company ???

We live out in the country and there are lots of stinky critters in our area. We've found that once we placed the moth balls down, it took about 3 rainfalls before we could no longer smell them - thus assuming they were no longer functional. Out here if a car happens to hit a skunk two miles down the road, you can still smell the aroma two weeks later.....ugh !!!
