For the dog, the old solution was a tomato juice bath. There may be newer products specifically designed for it, but tomato juice was what I was told ages ago.

As for the carpet..... hopefully someone has a "better living through chemistry" solution, 'cause the tomato juice isn't going to work...

Skunked again? This time forget the tomato juice. Try a mixture of 10 parts hydrogen peroxide to 1 part baking soda. Add a dash of degreasing dishwashing soap and pour into a spray bottle. Spray liberally over dry coat and allow to air dry. Avoid eyes. Works on inanimate objects, too!

Bathing the pet in a mixture of one quart 3 percent hydrogen peroxide, 1-cup baking soda and one teaspoon liquid soap. After bathing, rinse with tap water. keep out of eyes and ears

The dog and the carpet got to go.

Or use vinegar to clean them both.
