Cat or Dog Faeces Odours

When food reaches the intestinal tract, trillions of bacteria begin decomposing it. This in turn gives off foul smelling metabolites, the most potent of which are:

  • Hydrogen sulphide – which smells like rotten eggs.
  • Carbon disulphide – which smells like rotten radishes.
  • Ammonia – with its own very distinct sharp odour like smelling salts.

These are the same compounds that are responsible for the odour of flatulence (wind odours).

An animal that eats faeces may be attracted to its odour.

Spraying the recommended daily amount of Fresh Pets™ Solution onto your pets food will help reduce these odours and in many cases stop pets from eating their own faeces as shown in our stool eating section of benefits.

For convenience, Fresh Pets™ comes as a liquid that you simply spray onto your pet’s regular food every mealtime and mix it in.
