    Get Rid of Pet Smells

    Cat pee on the carpet? Wet dog smell on the couch? We love our pets, but let's face it, they don't always smell good. Here are our favorite tips for ridding your home of animal odor, so you can enjoy your furry friends a little more.

     

    Stop Doggy Breath

    If your dog has bad breath, try adding some parsley, yogurt, or raw carrots to his meal. A hard, clean, chew toy (avoid using a real bone because it may result in splinters) can also reduce plaque and gingivitis that may be causing bad breath. If he'll let you, you can also brush his teeth with a paste made with baking soda and water. If your pooch's bad breath is persistent, it could be a sign of a digestive disorder. Take him to your vet for a checkup.

     

    End Wet Dog Smell

    If you have a puppy who loves to play in water or go for a swim, you've probably dealt with that horrible wet dog smell. This is due to bacteria that multiplies in his damp fur. Avoid it by blow-drying him instead of letting him air dry. If you're looking to get wet dog smell out of furniture, read this helpful article.

     

    Eliminate Litter Box Odor

    If your cat’s litter box smells like, well, a litter box, rinse it out and add a half-inch of white vinegar in the box. Let it stand for half an hour, then swish it around, rinse, and dry the box.

     

    Get Rid of Cat Pee on Carpet and Upholstery

    Cat urine is one of the absolute toughest smells to get rid of. If you attempt to tackle it with regular soap or other household cleaning products, you can actually push the scent deeper into the affected item! Be careful, and use our homemade remedy instead. For carpet and upholstery, first try to absorb as much of the urine as you can with paper towels or an old cloth towel. Stand on the towel if necessary to get it to soak up more moisture. Then create a mixture of half white vinegar, half water, and soak the area until it penetrates all the fibers. Again, blot up as much of the liquid as you can. Finally, sprinkle baking soda over the area and spray with hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle. Scrub it deep into the fibers with an old toothbrush. Wait until it has dried completely, and then vacuum. Read this fantastic guide from Ehow.com to find out how to get cat urine out of leather.

     

    Remove Cat Pee from Walls

    For cat pee that's not on fabric (for example, if you have a female cat in heat who's spraying walls), try mixing 1 cup hydrogen peroxide with ½ tablespoon baking soda and 2 squirts liquid dish soap. Pour into a spray bottle and use wherever Fluffy has left her trademark. Be sure to spot-check first, since you run the risk of bleaching certain materials.

     

    Clean Fish Tanks and Hamster Cages

    Little animals can reek as much as big ones sometimes! Here are a couple good articles with instructions on how to fix a smelly fish tank and how to rid a hamster cage of odor.

    How do I remove dog urine odor? From ceramic tiles and wood?

    December 10, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTammyJCentral

    Pet nutrition is very important as like us. Better nutrition makes your health better and bad nutrition creates problem in your health, at the same time pets nutrition also that much necessary like you. In different place the food changes according to place and according to that also you need to change the food of the pets. Mostly people like to give homemade food but in homemade food the real quantity of vitamins is less than the required one
