Type 2 skunk spray mostly occurs during mating season which normally commences right after the first relatively warm day in January or early February. This is an objectionable smell and quite offensive. Type 2 Skunk Spray possesses a concentrated smell reminiscent of rotting garlic and rotting cabbage or sauerkraut. It is much more concentrated and can induce vomiting and nausea in many people.
When a dog, which has been sprayed by Type 2 Skunk Spray enters a house, the odor at first is delayed and not recognized. Frequently, people say that they could not at first identify the odor as skunk spray until it decompressed and became more aerated. The odor is thick, pervasive and will spread through a house rapidly.
It is our opinion that Type 2 Skunk Spray occurs because the animal is coming out of dormancy and its oils have started to anaerobically ferment in their bodies. This fermentation seems to concentrate the chemical components of the skunk oil and the odors are much more pronounced.
