Pet Odors: How to Control Foul Smells in Your House and on Your Dog & Cat
While eliminating odors at their source should always be your first priority, we recommend keeping a variety of odor eliminators near problem areas as a second line of defense against raised eyebrows from guests and family.
A variety of odor-eliminating solutions are available, including absorbents, deodorizers and disinfectants.
Trap lingering odors
Great for odor "hot spots" near the litter pan or garbage can, absorbents work like the box of baking soda in your fridge. The convenience of absorbents is you set them out and forget about it – they keep working while you're away.
Freshen your home
What's more welcoming than the smell of citrus, honeysuckle, peach blossoms, or a spring rain? There's a wide variety of aerosols, as well as scented decorative candles to match
Kill germs that cause odors
When you have multiple pets sharing the same kennel area, you need to tackle pet odors at their source: the germs that thrive on what our pets leave behind. Disinfectants use enzymes to "eat away" odors from hard surfaces like concrete floors and the insides of garbage containers. Better yet, by killing the germs, you're also reducing the risk of illness for you and your pets.
Of course, you can also reduce pet odors in your home by frequently grooming and bathing your pets, changing litter often, and quickly cleaning up the occasional accident. With so many odor-busting solutions available, it's easy to get a handle on offensive smells so that "You'd never know you have a pet!"
