The 2 most common causes of bad odor in a pet are lack of cleanliness and/or health problems. Today, we will give you the 7 best tips to help you to remove and prevent bad smells on your pet.
Botched or inadequate hygiene in your dog is not the only cause that produces a bad odor. If even with a good bathe, the odor persists, something is not going well in your pet’s body. Therefore, we should always be looking after the cleanliness and health of our pets.
1 Daily Brush Your Dog’s Coat
You should use a natural detangler spray before you brush, especially for dogs with long hair.
2 Daily Dental Care Is Recommended
It is recommended that you can use natural dental spray. It’s easy to use, just spraying it directly in teeth, gums, food, water, toys, and toothbrush. Also, using a toothbrush and toothpaste is recommended as well.
3 Wash Your Dog Once or Twice a Month
Wash your dog once or twice a month with pet shampoo and pet conditioner. When bathing your dog, make sure to dry quickly because wet skin takes on odor.
4 Use a Deodorizer Dog Spray
Between baths, use a deodorizer to maintain a clean and fresh pad. If you are using citronella oil as an insect repellent somewhere at home, remember to deodorize it because dogs hate it, which is why it is also used in training tools like citronella spray collars.
5 Check His Body, Ears, Mouth, and Feet
Periodically check his body, ears, mouth, and feet, looking for irritations, inflammations, skin infections, pimples, flakes, redness or fungal infections. For these cases, you can use antibacterial shampoo and antibacterial spray, but if the infection is severe, please take your dog to the vet.
6 Visit a Vet at Least Twice a Year
To keep your dog healthy and clean, please visit your vet.
7 Clean Your Pet’s Living Area
Remember to clean frequently your dog’s living area.
