Removing Pet Odors from Your Apartment

in Pets on by

Owning a pet is a wonderful thing. Dogs provide unconditional love and cats are comforting companions. Studies have shown that people who own pets live longer and enjoy lower levels of stress. Unless, of course, your apartment smells strongly of your furry best friend. If your pet is accident prone (you know what we mean), you can forget about reducing your stress. Luckily, your apartment doesn't have to suffer with you. Here are some tips for getting rid of odors and some advice to keep accidents from happening in the future. Find the source of the stink. You've got to identify the problem before you fix it. Pets can stink up an apartment in so many ways. If your apartment smells like urine or feces, at least you know what you're dealing with. Sometimes the smell is much less distinct so you'll have to find the source. Has your dog or cat recently acquired an unusual odor? The smaller the apartment, the more pervasive the smell of your stinky pet will be. If your pet goes outside, supervise it closely to make sure it isn't rolling, playing or sleeping in something you don't want brought into your house. If you're sure the smell isn't coming from something the pet is tracking into the house, a bath and good brushing may eliminate the odor. If this doesn't work, a medical problem may be to blame. Body odor isn't necessarily the sign of a serious problem, but you don't want to wait to find out. Take your pet to the veterinarian as soon as possible. read more
