Are You Having Trouble with Cat and Dog Odor?

Are You Having Trouble with Cat and Dog Odor?

By Clifford Woods

If you are like most pet owners, you probably consider your pets as members of the family. They share your home, provide you with wholehearted love, and they will always be ready to greet you with a meow or a tail wag whenever you are in sight. 

Even though their unconditional affection will often make them far more charming than the human members of your family, cats and dogs come with their own personal set of problems. The most typical concern is the odor caused by animals.

Cat Odors Cats generally cause two main indoor odor-related challenges: urine in the litter box and outside of it. For your cat's litter box, picking the appropriate litter is very important, as is scooping and changing out the litter regularly. When a cat urinates outside of the litter box, it can be more bothersome. If you do not eliminate the odor immediately, the cat is much more likely to do it again in the exact same area. 

Unfortunately, you might not notice the smell until it has had the chance to seep into the rug or furnishings.
Once it has seeped in and the germs that cause the ammonia odor have had time to flourish, it can be a bit challenging to get rid of the smell. Cats may also create some odor troubles outdoors as well. If there are other cats in the community that check out your backyard, for instance, you may find yourself in a situation where every single cat in the neighborhood, along with yours, marks and remark the same spot in your yard. 

Cats love to mark their territories. Also, the cats may start to make use of a particular area of your yard as a litter box. As soon as one cat notices the scent of a different cat's excrement, it will attempt to cover it up with its own. In no time, you will have a major odor problem on your hand.

Dog Odors A pretty much identical set of problems give dog owners trouble as well. Dogs, at times, have ‘accidents’ inside your home which could result in a domino effect if you have no good odor eliminator. A dog can also have the inclination to return to the exact same spot for a second and third time. Similar to cats, dogs that do their business in the yard normally do it again in the same are. This could affect your landscape in a bad way. 

For those who have a kennel run, on warm days the smells can travel into your house which can present quite a challenge.

Solution for Pet Odors What is the best way to help reduce pet-related odors?
In most cases, you will need a solution that does not hide your pet's smells but gets rid of them completely. Preferably, the product should be without scent in order to make sure that your pet does not desire to "re-mark" his or her territory. On top of that, a solution that eliminate pet smells completely rather than hide it can, help stop your pet from re-visiting the restricted areas of your home and go where they are supposed to go.

When you are looking for an all-natural odor remover, find a product that is completely organic and specifically mentions that it is safe for pets. Make sure the solution you choose is natural and organic and is made with beneficial microorganisms. This will remove odors through microbial digestion of ammonia and hydrogen sulfide along with minimizing odor-causing substances and your pets will be healthier for it.

Our pets will always be considered close family members, and the correct odor remover can make sure that their smell does not become or remain a problem to the rest of the family.
