Pocket pets give off a distinct scent that many people find unpleasant. To some extent, neutering a pocket pet can help reduce undesirable odor, however, the best way to deal with the problem is to give your pet’s cage a thoroughly cleaning regularly. The animal’s habits and the size of its enclosure can give you an idea regarding the frequency and amount of cleaning the cage needs.
Poorly maintained enclosures of pocket pets can significantly contribute to the buildup of odor that can eventually permeate the entire house. Aside from being a nuisance to you and your family, it can be a cause of embarrassment when guests come over.
Leftover food should be removed every day and waste should be properly disposed of. Food and water bowls should be washed thoroughly with soap and water; these should be thoroughly dried before they are returned to the enclosure. A weekly general cleaning and disinfection of the cage and its furniture should also be made.
