Can a Dog get Rabies from Skunk Spray?

No, a dog cannot get rabies from skunk spray and the reason for this is that for the dog to get rabies the dog must be bitten to somehow have to be in contact with the saliva that has to enter the dog’s face.

Make sure to wear gloves while doing this. Make sure to rub this formula thoroughly.
