Our pets are our beloved four-legged children, and their care is never more important to us than when we have to leave them behind either for business, pleasure or when travel plans are urgent and arise unexpectedly.
Pets are very well loved in the United States, as evidenced by statistics that estimate 43 million homes have more than one dog and more than one cat resides in some 30 million households.
When we have to temporarily part company with our fur babies, we seek out doggie care and kennels that can meet their needs, as each facility is different.
Statistics also tell us that more than 30 million pet owners leave their pets in the care of a respected facility every year.
The hectic lives of today’s consumers often force the need to travel more often, which has subsequently led to the explosive growth of kennels, pet hotels and doggie care facilities.
Scenting And Odor Control In Doggie Care Facilities
There is more to doggie care than just a place that offers food and exercise.
A pleasant, mellow ambiance may be intangible, but it is nevertheless, vital to a dog’s well being, and it can affect the animal’s ability to thrive without the support of their primary familial connection.
Scent and odor control options provided by our air freshener experts at Pestco Professional Services offer sustainable, cost effective solutions.
A kennel or doggie care facility must maintain an environment that will ensure pets entrusted in their care remain healthy and happy.
In doggie care facilities and kennels the traffic is constant, and many new animals come, interact with others and go every day of the year.
There is no way even for the most responsible of caregivers to know where each animal has been before arriving or what they may have been exposed to.
This is why management of the environment (which is they only thing that can be controlled) is so important. This is focused on maintaining safe levels of disease, odor and pest control.
Urine and feces are the most common malodors, and they reveal an unhealthy and unhygienic atmosphere, which raises the risk level of both disease and stress for all the animals.
When waste materials break down, an ammonia gas is produced that releases vapor and unpleasant odors.
If waste is not cleaned up in a timely manner and left to accumulate, this gas can adversely affect a dog’s eyes and lungs.
Feces have such a terrible odor because of the level of bacteria they contain, which is approximately 25% of the total weight of the stool.
These pathogens are not visible to the naked eye, and they are known to reproduce at the frightening rate of every 10 minutes.
Their malodor can be greatly minimized by offering boarding dogs many trips every day to elimination locations within the kennel or doggie care facility.
In addition, staff must be vigilant and remove waste as soon as it happens, which will help to reduce bad smells.
Decreasing malodors in doggie care and kennels requires vigilance concerning baths, clean bedding, good ventilation and calming measures.
Proper ventilation and dehumidification particularly, are important agents in controlling the rate of bacterial reproduction.
Moisture presents a very big problem as well because it provides the perfect environment for the breeding and spread of dangerous pathogens.
There is no substitute for our hard duty neutralizers and fragrances to maintain fresh, odor-free facilities.
Our most powerful weapon is a neutralizing additive known as Metazene, which attacks and destroys malodors at the molecular level.
The Benefits of Scenting Doggie Care Facilities
The right scent in the right place translates into comfort for animals suddenly displaced from their homes and brought to a new and alien setting with strange sounds, sights, and most importantly, smells.
Scent has the power to calm, soothe and lower stress levels as well as to energize.
It can engage dogs in play and help distract them from fear and anxiety.
According to documentation from several animal care facilities, citrus scents in particular, are known for their ability to lower stress levels from 40% to 3%!
The following fragrances formulated by Air Scent International are popular because they act both as soothing agents for anxious animals and promote a sense of fresh and clean throughout a doggie care facility or kennel.
