How To Hide Pet Odours

Pet Odours

Some pet owners really just live in a stench they’re not aware of. Many dog, and cat, owners take precautions to avoid pet odours, a stinky house, like making sure the dog doesn’t track in mud or hastily brushing the cat hair off of the couch before guests come over.

On the other hand, some of the most important things a pet owner can do to prevent bad smells are done on a nearly constant basis and not right before people come over.

Here are some things one can do to get better control of pet scents, from urine to that oh-so-familiar wet dog smell.

The Secret to Fresh Kitty Litter

Changing the litter frequently is important, but if you’re living in a small apartment where the scent can travel across the whole space, it might not be enough. Buy a covered litter box, one with plenty of room for a cat to move and turn around, to prevent the spread of litter across your floors.

You don’t need to buy a ridiculous technological wonder, just a cover. Also, give your cat a little entryway to wipe off its paws. Don’t forget that the box itself needs to be wiped down and cleaned every once in a while in addition to being freshened with new litter. The box itself should also be replaced at least once a year.

Having a Clean Carpet

The secret of making sure your carpet won’t stink is to not let accidents sit around. Try to get pet messes up as soon as you possibly can. After picking up as much as possible with paper towels, you’ll want to cover up the scent to avoid future accidents there (as pets tend to pee in the same spot after that if you don’t get it up well enough).

Simple Solution Extreme Pet Odour & Stain removal will allow you to blot up stains and get rid of the smell quickly. The next thing to do for set-in stains or major odour problems is to steam clean your carpet and continue to use the Simple Solutions Pet Odour Range.

Getting Rid of Pet Odours in furniture

A favourite trick is to get up pet fur with a squeegee or a damp rubber glove. After getting the hair off, though, the odour often still remains. Take off what you can, like pillow covers and cushions, and wash it with laundry detergent and a quarter-cup of apple cider vinegar.

For the upholstery that you can’t take off and launder, use the simple solutions odour removal.  Now, it will just smell fresh!

Tips for Pet Cleanliness

A veteran pet owner can often spot the difference between a normal pet smell and a strange smell, and a bad odour in your house from your pet might be caused by its poor health.

Make sure your dog is regularly bathed. Check its ears for infection, its teeth for oral hygiene issues, and its skin for any hot spots.

The same goes for cats. Older cats may not be able to clean themselves as well, so a bathing regimen might be necessary. In general, pets should be checked and looked after with the aid of an occasional vet visit.

Some owners have said that even changing their dog’s diet has resulted in a change in their pet odours. You can get all your feed, toys, grooming items, and pest control essentials from Assagay Feeds.

Washing Your Pet’s Toys and Items

The source of the stink might be the thing your pet uses the most, like your dog or cat’s bed, for instance. If your dog has a favourite chew toy, giving it a rinse or a wash might not be the worst idea.

Check their beds, their favourite blankets and towels, their food trays, and also the item that many owners forget about: your pet’s collar. Pet food itself also has a certain aroma, so store that in an airtight tin rather than the loose bag it often comes in.
