How Odorox/Pyure Hydroxyl Generator Eliminate All Animal Odor, Pet Smell, Smelly Pets. Remove Dog & Cat Smell from Homes, Veterinarian Offices, Pet Store
What Causes of Pet Odor/Smells
Unhealthy pets tend to smell, which means that proper medical care can often take care of the cause of the odor and eliminate it, but not always. Pet odors are generally found where the skin is dark and moist, such as under the tail, in the mouth and ears, and in skin folds. These locations on a pet have a high concentration of bacteria and yeast, which contributes to the bad odor. While even healthy pets have yeast and bacteria on their skin, these organisms are not allowed to proliferate in the way that they are on the skin of an unhealthy animal. As the numbers of yeast and bacteria increase, so does the smell.Itching is also caused by bacteria and yeast, and when a pet scratches, this will actually increase blood flow to that area of the body. This in turn can cause swelling, inflammation, and heat, which will make odors worse, leaving pet owners wondering how to remove pet odors.
Wet pets often smell worse than dry ones do, as the number of compounds in the coat that can cause odors will increase when the animal is wet. Additionally, these compounds will produce a stronger odor when they are wet.
What Should I Know about Pet Odors
A bad smell is often the sign of an unhealthy pet.
Some healthy animals have a “dog odor” due to glands in their footpads
All animals, including healthy ones, will have some odors from their bodies, but they will only become offensive when the animal is sick.
Smells from the ears are generally caused by yeast or bacteria infections, and these are common in dogs with longer ears, ones that swim on a regular basis, dogs who suffer from food allergies, or animals with ear mites.
Cats who have ear infections or polyps will smell worse as time goes on, because their body will struggle to remove the infection. Medication and white blood cells can’t permeate the waxy plug that forms in the ear from pus, cerumen, and debris.
Ears have to be cleaned and all debris removed to resolve the smell. This ensures that medication can be put directly into the ear canal.
For infections in the inner ear, systemic antibiotics will be necessary.
While healthy skin does not naturally have a bad smell, unhealthy skin will hold dirt, bacteria, and even have clogged pores. The skin oil and the new skin cells can both contribute to a bad odor as the skin cells trap all bacteria and oil on the skin.
The skin is actually an organ that will discharge waste, which can be itchy and smelly.
Some medications cause animals to smell garlicy.
Animals who suffer from thyroid problems will often have skin problems, which can contribute to bad smells.
Cats who have hyperactive thyroids will have oily coats that smell and mat easily because the cat won’t groom themselves.
Cancers can affect the skin and cause bad odors to occur.
Bad breath is generally caused by an overabundance of bacteria in the mouth. Trapped food will settle in between teeth, causing abscesses. Some pets may have bad breath due to their diet or their inability to completely swallow their food.
Bad breath can be a sign of internal medical problems, such as diabetes, kidney disease, and ulcers and necessitates a trip to the vet and animal hospital.
Skin folds in the lower lip can trap food, yeast, and bacteria, leading to a foul pet store smell.
Anal areas can release smells that are offensive due to yeast, bacteria, and fecal matter. Additionally, pets with long hair, anal sac inflammation, or diarrhea often suffer from bad smells. Heavy folds of skin around the tail trap particles and odors, leaving people wondering can Hydroxyls eliminate pet odors?
Female dogs in season have vaginal discharge that should not be fetid, and if it is, there is a medical problem.
Urinary incontinence can cause bad odors, especially if incontinence occurs when the pet is sleeping and they lay in their urine.
Pets with wrinkled or folded skin around the vulva often have yeast,bacteria , and moisture in the skin, causing a condition called “intertrigo.”Odorox/Pyure hydroxyl processors kill pet odors , helping improve the smell of a space.

The Haddonfield Public schools have purchased cleaning supplies and
materials from Bio-Shine for several years. Our contact, Mr Barry Bard, has
served our district well over this time and has provided us with an overwhelming base of knowledge to go along with the supplies that we have purchased. From
resurfacing of floors to indoor air quality, we have been pleased with the product line that Bio-shine has provided.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved forward with the purchase of Odorox Hydroxyl Generators for our nurses Suites and Athletic trainer's offices in our Schools. Barry introduced me to the Odorox Hydroxyl Generators as a tool to combat odors and to assist with Indoor air quality issues as a result of leaks and mold restoration projects. We view these machines as an essential tool in fighting the Current pandemic as well as a permanent fixture moving forward.

FEATURED IN HEALTH AND SAFETY
We've talked about cooties before, Life-Saver. Nothing is scarier than some of the stuff you can't even see.
Fortunately, our bodies came equipped with an incredible array of weapons to protect us from sick people's diseases.
I can't find any studies that say so, but I don't think EMS providers get sick as often as most other people. If that's true, I suspect it's because we're exposed to so much disease on a regular basis that we're somewhat immune to it. I've always been impressed by that (and have always been grateful for it.) But I still think we'd be a lot safer if somebody could devise a surefire way to sanitize an ambulance without taking it apart.
In the March 2005 installment of this column, I discussed numerous ways EMS providers could minimize their exposure to disease. I suggested everything from leaving their boots at work to routinely cleaning door handles, stretchers, ceiling hardware and radio mics with contact cleaner. I've also talked about such practices as hand-washing, ditching exam gloves before driving, removing the floor hardware to address substances that accumulate there and not eating in ambulances.
I do brag some about my agency's crews. I hope you understand I love 'em to death. If you ever come and ride with us, you'll see why in about a second. Not only are they fine caregivers, but they also have hearts the size of toasters. If we were to lose just one of them, all of EMS would be damaged. Their families expect us to keep them safe, and we try hard to do that.
One of our first responders is an EMT named Chris Forbes. Chris is a lieutenant with our fire department here in Brighton, Colo., and he's a part-time distributor of gizmos called hydroxyl generators. Hydroxyl ions are unstable, negatively charged molecules that oxidize single-celled organisms, and thereby, destroy them. Chris showed us a device the size of a briefcase that's designed to produce and circulate hydroxyls throughout a closed environment about the size of a small house (2,000 square feet). We bought it (for about $2,800). When we take an ambulance out of service for maintenance, and before we give it back to a crew, we plug the device into the unit's 110VAC shoreline circuit and run it in the patient compartment for 24 hours with all the doors and windows closed.
We're pretty small-time, and we serve a poor district, so we don't have a lot of money for science. We've found no reference to anybody using hydroxyl generators in ambulances. But the independent lab reports we've read say that in structures, this device destroys more than 99.9% of airborne, surface and contained anthrax, Clostridium difficile, Escherichia coli, influenza A, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Listeria monocytogenes, MRSA, Staph aureus, molds and their spores, and tuberculosis bacilli on stainless steel and cotton fabric surfaces during a single 12-hour exposure.(1?3)
We also know from experience that it eliminates biologic and non-biologic odors?including emesis, blood, smoke and ethanol?and produces no odors of its own.
They're commonly installed in the heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems of public buildings, especially in humid areas, and they're routinely used to purify structures after flooding. Fire departments use them to sanitize turnout gear.
How do these things work? Ours contains a fan that draws .dirty. air through a multiple-wavelength ultraviolet chamber, then exhausts it as clean air?along with hydroxyl ions?back into the environment. Hydroxyls occur naturally in sunlight. Although they're deadly to one-celled organisms, they're harmless to people and animals. Likewise, tests prove they break down airborne aldehydes, ozone, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds.(4)
According to Chris, you can actually get these things in much smaller sizes, designed for permanent mounting in an ambulance, for about $500. That would spread the cost of one over the span of a lease, or the life of a vehicle. JEMS - Journal of Emergency Medical Services
